Summary: This is a study into Job chapter thirty six.
GOD’S WONDERFUL WORKS OF CREATION
In this section Elihu tells Job to look at God’s creation and see the greatness of God Himself.
Let us all remember the wonderful works of God. We all have seen it – but we have only seen a limited amount of it. Even if we have explored caves or flown to the moon – still we have only seen a fraction of God’s creation. We look on it from afar – not really understanding how it all fits together. Not really understanding its complete purpose or significance. How could we? God’s creation was created for His glory – and do any of us fully understand the glory of God? God is great and we do not know Him. Why has He set the planets in their orbit? Why has He created the expanse of the universe? But Elihu directs his attention in another direction.
“He draws up drops of water and distills rain from the mist.” (Verse twenty seven)
In Matthew we find these words:
“He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” Matthew 5:45 (NKJV)
Who can understand the mind of God? He makes the clouds. He makes the rain. It has been purified in the process of its forming. It has been distilled. And God allows it to fall on man – the just and the unjust alike. We all receive its blessing from God. Some do not even realize that it is a gift from God – but it is. He announces it coming – with peals of thunder. He puts on a light show (lighting) so what we can see God’s glory and yet we only see a fraction of it. Our eyes are limited – our eyes are weak. All that we see all that we understand is small compared to what we will see.
“For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.” 1 Corinthians 13:12 (NKJV)
