Read Job 10-12
Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind. Job 12:9-10
Job knew that the plan all everything created, including his small part in human history, had been ordered by God. He saw the wisdom and goodness of the Lord all around him, and understood that God’s hand had touched every moment.
We often hear about the filtering hand of God, that everything that happens to us has been seen and approved by Him. Nothing is a surprise to God, as He has set up our path from the beginning of time. This can be hard to fathom when we’re in the middle of a storm, even when it’s nothing compared to Job’s.
Job humbled himself to whatever God had planned for him. This is difficult for humans to do, as we want our own way and our own plan, so this is a great example to those hard-headed among us. He saw the power God had over the lowest of creatures on earth, so how much more then can we be confident in His work among men?
It doesn’t matter what the day brings, good or bad, as God has prepared the day for us. We owe everything that we are and everything that we will be today to the Lord, just as Job did. He didn’t have to understand the circumstances before thanking God for having His willing way in them - he just needed to have faith.
