I am foolish to act like a “know-it-all,” and fail to listen to God, Who does  “know it all.” Job, at the end of his hell on earth experience where all his children were killed, his body was covered with sores, and he had lost all his earthly wealth—had this conversation with God: “I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted. You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge?’ Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know. You said, ‘Listen now, and I will speak; I will question you, and you shall answer me.’ My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you. Therefore, I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes.” (Job 42:1-6)  

I had to read that three times to grasp its significance.

Job, after His terrible trials, had come into a deeper understanding of trusting God—not because of the blessings he had received from God—but because of who God is! When we develop this kind of relationship with God, then we know He will always walk with us. Will we walk with Him? Or, will we walk our own path, utilizing our own knowledge instead of His plan which is based upon all  knowledge! God designed us, and if we choose to waste His design with our bad decisions, then that’s worse than hanging a Monet in an uninhabited, dark cave or sending a world-class athlete to work in the salt mines.

We are God’s handiwork, each designed for an amazing purpose. If we don’t believe that, we should try creating something as amazing as our own bodies. We we can’t create even one cell! This challenges me to better know my brilliant, Heavenly Father. We are each privileged and have the ability to know Him in such a way that we may reflect beauty which eclipses any Monet and shine brilliantly so the whole world can see Him. Take the time to “see” God as Job saw Him because then others will see us in all the wonderfulness He created us to be!
