Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding. Who set its measurements? Since you know. Or who stretched the line on it? On what were its bases sunk? Or who laid its cornerstone? When the morning stars sang together and all of the sons of God shouted for joy?
–God’s response to Job bitter complaint (Job 38:4-7)
Isn’t that our problem? We suffer from a significant lack of perspective. We don’t get it. Ever since the fruit poisoned humankind, we think we know everything. But as God so sarcastically points out, we don’t have a clue.
We think we’re in control and God points out, we don’t send the thunder or the snow or the rain. We can’t control these “simple” things. How could we even try to control the events of our lives?
To be honest, when I remember God’s sovereignty and my insignificance, I feel comforted that He is running the show. Whether He ordains good or bad for me, I will trust in Him.
