Upwords; Max Lucado – Now I Have Seen You

 

Listen to Today’s Devotion

Consider the words Job said to God: “I had heard about you before, but now I have seen you (Job 42:5).

You can use the book of Job as evidence that God gives us questions and no answers. But to do so, you need to cut out the rest of the book of Job, for that’s not how Job heard it. All his life Job had been a good man. All his life he had believed in God, but in the storm Job saw God.

He saw hope, lover, destroyer, giver, taker, dreamer, deliverer. Job saw the tender anger of a God whose unending love is often received with a peculiar mistrust. Job stood as a blade of grass against the consuming fire of God’s splendor. Job’s demands melted like wax as God pulled back the curtain and heaven’s light fell uneclipsed across the earth.
