Job 11:7-9 “Can you solve the mysteries of God? Can you discover everything about the Almighty? Such knowledge is higher than the heavens—and who are you? It is deeper than the underworld—what do you know? It is broader than the earth and wider than the sea.” ~NLT
Right now, how are you? What is running through your mind? Emotionally what is taking your joy? Often times, when we step back and look at ourselves, we realize what we allow in front of our faces. We become aware of what the root and/or the foundation of our stress may be.
For example, those of us that view social media all day, allow the topic of the day to set in our spirits and poison any word we may have in us. The violence, the drama, and the controversy give birth to anger, jealousy, and lust in our flesh. Our flesh becomes strong as it is fed by all the negative energy. It also gives birth to doubt in God’s promises we work so hard to believe on Sunday morning. How do we keep these viruses from growing in our spiritual bodies?
First, we must cut down on our intake of negative feedback that we receive from social media and news. Just like the alcoholic must push the bottle away, the drug addict must push the drugs away, we must push away that wasted time we give to the world and its issues.
Secondly, we must replace that time with the study, the learning and knowledge of the promises of God. Take on the task of, “…solving the mysteries of God…” Assume the responsibility of, “…discovering everything about the Almighty…” by feeding our spirits with God’s word daily. Not once a week, twice a week, three times a week, but every day. Look, if you are not at that point yet, work up to it. If you only read a scripture or if you are only exposed to God’s word on Sunday, pick another day out of the week to read a scripture. If you get into God’s word twice a week, pick a third day and so on. Until you have developed the good habit of getting into God’s word every day.
“Who are you?” When you leave the world of chaos, you receive the peace of God to discover who He created you to be for Him. You discover that the kingdom, the Good News, and the Gospel are, “…deeper than the underworld…broader than the earth and wider than the sea…” These mysteries should be pursued by the children of God every day. Feeding and strengthening our spirits so that we may all see through the smoke and mirrors of this world. We begin to see what God wants us to see; and what the enemy attempts to hide from us with all the distractions of this world.
This text from the book of Job is a promise from God that if we decide to pursue the mysteries of the Father, He will allow us the peace and the wisdom we need to not only endure everything the enemy can throw at us; He will also give us the tools we need to accomplish our purpose in this world for His kingdom plan.
Our prayer is that you receive Him and believe, trust and walk in His will for you in Jesus’ name,
