PAST FINDING OUT (The Lord reveals His omnipotence)
Key Verse(s): Job 38:4-6 Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone?
Job 15:7-8 Are you the first man who was born? Or were you made before the hills? Have you heard the counsel of God? Do you limit wisdom to yourself?
Psalm 104:5 You who laid the foundation of the earth, so that it should not be moved forever.
Psalm 90:2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
Romans 11:33-34 Oh the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways PAST FINDING OUT! For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has become His counselor?
The Key Verses above are included in the glaring questions God asked Job out of the whirlwind. Today's evolutionists ought to be asked the same questions!
We're all familiar with the extreme difficulties and tests Job endured. In the midst of despair God still cared and reminded Job of "whose hands" he was resting in---the Sovereign Lord of the universe---the Almighty! It's as though God is telling Job---and us---that nothing gets by Him. That nothing catches Him by surprise!
God's questions to Job are challenging. Chapters 38 and 39 of the book bearing his name bring to mind the wonder and the majestic glory of our great God! He is PAST FINDING OUT indeed!
Dear believer, if you are in need of a good dose of the reminder of your Father's loving care and omnipotence, read the entire chapters of Job 38 and 39, and also Psalm 104. Then thank Him that He is all sovereign in the universe; that He is in charge of all things; and that He is truly PAST FINDING OUT!

It's neat to see that God speaks to us all is similar ways, and neater still when we coalesce in his Word. I enjoyed this article! (I usually look up those who critique me, but what a nice surprise to see this piece!) Thanks. Roger
