Job 38:4 "Where were you when I made the earth? If you are so smart, answer me.
Job 38:5 And who decided how big the earth should be? Who measured it with a measuring line?
Job 38:6 What is the earth resting on? Who put the first stone in its place
Job 38:7 when the morning stars sang together and the angels shouted with joy?
Job 38:8 "Who closed the flood gates as the sea gushed from the womb?
Job 38:9 Who covered it with clouds and wrapped it in darkness?
Job 38:10 I set the limits for the sea and put it behind locked gates.
Job 38:11 I said to the sea, 'You can come this far, but no farther. This is where your proud waves will stop.'
Who measured the oceans in the palm of his hand? Who used his hand to measure the sky? Who used a bowl to measure all the dust of the earth? Who used scales to measure the mountains and hills?
2. God declares His thoughts to His people. (Daniel 2:28)
But there is a God in heaven who tells secret things. God has given King Nebuchadnezzar dreams to show him what will happen later. This was your dream, and this is what you saw while lying on your bed:
3. God sets the night and day. (Exodus 14:20)
In this way the cloud stood between the Egyptians and the Israelites. There was light for the Israelites. But there was darkness for the Egyptians. So the Egyptians did not come any closer to the Israelites that night.
4. God rules the world. (Micah 1:3)
See, the LORD is leaving his place to come down and walk on the high places of the earth.
"My people say, 'God saves us. His name is the LORD All-Powerful, the Holy One of Israel.'"
He built his upper rooms above the skies. He put his skies over the earth. He calls for the waters of the sea and pours them out as rain on the land. YAHWEH is his name.
Let the Sovereign Lord rule and reign in this year of 2012 for you! When God is Sovereign in your life, everything will just fall into it's proper places.
