Today's passages must be some of my favourite in the entire Bible. The awe inspiring magnificence of God described in such breathtaking poetry truly puts things into perspective - both for Job and for us. God is so much more than our finite minds can grasp, and His power is beyond comprehension.
Job realizes his smallness in the face of almighty God and falls silent.
And we segue into the love chapter. How utterly fitting.
God doesn't NEED us. But He created us anyway - in His image, to glorify Him.
God doesn't NEED us. But He loves us anyway.
We only know what love looks like, because of His love.
We are only capable of love because He first loved us.
And never are we more like Him, than when we love those around us.
Love - as the Word defines it, not as the world defines it.
