11. God Remains Powerful during Our Suffering (Job 40-41)

Related Media

Job (part eleven)

God's first speech reminded Job of his place in the universe. God is aware of every minute occurrence in His cherished creation, so of course He remains aware of and involved in Job's situation. To suggest otherwise insults God. This second speech to Job emphasizes the power of God. If Job will acknowledge the stunning power of nature and certain creatures, then of course he should acknowledge the infinitely greater power of the One who made them. At last, Job understands. He had admitted his complete unworthiness after God's first speech. He repents after God's second speech.
