Scripture Sunday (9)

Scripture Sunday is a weekly quote-post to highlight Bible passages I’ve read recently that I found particularly interesting. I’m not a qualified expert in any way, so I will keep my thoughts to my highly-subjective impressions. My translation is the New International Version.

From my reading this week: 

“But ask the animals, and they will teach you,
    or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you;
    or speak to the earth, and it will teach you,
    or let the fish in the sea inform you.
     Which of all these does not know
    that the hand of the Lord has done this?
     In his hand is the life of every creature
    and the breath of all mankind.
    Does not the ear test words
    as the tongue tastes food?
    Is not wisdom found among the aged?
    Does not long life bring understanding?

  To God belong wisdom and power;
    counsel and understanding are his.
     What he tears down cannot be rebuilt;
    those he imprisons cannot be released.
     If he holds back the waters, there is drought;
    if he lets them loose, they devastate the land.
    To him belong strength and insight;
    both deceived and deceiver are his.

-Job 12:7-16

Why I chose it:

In an age where truth is harder to find and discern than ever, I appreciate that God’s Word remains the same. I wander around trying to figure out what’s real and what’s not, and the Bible asks, “Isn’t it obvious? All of creation knows what’s up. God is the real deal and he’s not going anywhere.”

    LOVE THIS
    Reminds me of something Pawson said in a sermon I listened to yesterday: if you want to understand God, study nature or history.
