Ain't My Universe!

"Who has cleft a channel for the torrents of rain and a way for the thunderbolt, to bring rain on a land where no man is, on the desert in which there is no man, to satisfy the waste and desolate land, and to make the ground sprout with grass?" -Job 38:25-27

Job 38-39 has quickly become one of my favorite pieces of Scripture....there isn't even an INKLING of anything about us in there! 

What God has essentially said in the above verses is, "Look dude, I make it rain and I take care of the parts of the Earth that no man has EVER set foot on or even knew existed! It ain't about you, this is MY universe!"

God gives us glimpses of who he is, but we're looking through a keyhole at a being that is larger than the universe.

He is creator, controller, ruler, provider, sustainer, lover, and good...I DO know those things! But as far as presuming to know exactly how God works?'s his universe, he does whatever he wants to!

So regardless of circumstances or what's going on around me and in the world, I know that it's his universe, everything is his, he does what he wants and he is still good! 

And knowing this about God, believers, makes him enough! 

"God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him!" -John Piper
