A Voice from the Storm

     Job 38-41

 

  • God in the dock

The pain of false accusations

 

The courtroom:

 

 

 

 

  • God speaks

3 types of questions: Who, what and have you ever.

God’s defence wasn’t quite as Job expected.

At the first pause, Job withdraws his accusations against God, 40:4

 

  • Why should we assume that we should receive an answer?
  • We have reasons to trust such a God who displays both wisdom and power.

The problem of trying to ‘outgod-God’.

 

 

 

The book starts out with our questions for God and ends with God’s questions for us.

 

 

‘God writes straight with crooked lines’.

 

  • We are left with only two corners of the triangle:

 

 

God is just and Job is righteous. The retribution theory doesn’t hold.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The posture of worship is adopted by Job.

 

 

 

The attitude of worship - George Mueller
