Read: Job 11-13
Marked: Job 12:10, In whose hand is the life of every living thing, And the breath of all mankind?
The power of God is beyond our comprehension. In His hand He holds the life and breath of man and every living creature.
Genesis 6 begins the story of Noah and the decision God made to destroy man because of wickedness.
But now God says that He’ll never destroy the earth by flood again. Yet the power to do so is still in His hand and all mankind should consider this and fear God.
Fear is not a bad thing. We fear fire so we avoid burning the house down. But fire also cooks our food and we enjoy good food well cooked.
We should fear God because He has the power to end life as we know it. But trusting in and learning to walk in His ways also brings with it the joy of an abundant life, and the blessing of His grace.
