We often think that God is not serious, but listen as God speaks in Job 42.7; “My anger burns against you and against your two friends”. God does not become angry as man is angry. God’s anger burns to uphold His Holiness…we all would shutter to hear God speak these words to us, but He does and we are not listening.
Job 42:7 After the Lord had spoken these words to Job, the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite: “My anger burns against you and against your two friends, for you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has.
When mankind wants he wants with a passion, and like Job, mankind wants to find God at fault.
Job 40:2 “Shall a faultfinder contend with the Almighty? He who argues with God, let him answer it.”
To pursue our passions, we will even put God in the wrong and condemn His Word.
Job 40:8 Will you even put me in the wrong? Will you condemn me that you may be in the right?
Job repented and recognized that God is too wonderful to understand fully.
Job 42:3 ‘Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?’ Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know.
