GOD’S WORD FOR OCTOBER 10
GOD’S WORD FOR OCTOBER 10 ~ ~ Job 12:13~ ~“With Him are wisdom and strength, He has counsel and understanding.”
“Is not God in the height of heaven? And see the highest stars, how lofty they are!”
“Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.”
The entire universe and all its forces were planned and created out of the mind of God. Since He is God, He was not forced to make anything in a certain way.
The study of the universe and its forces is called cosmology. The night sky is a breathtaking vision to anyone who views it far away from city lights. As cosmologists look into space, they see mysteries that cannot be explained. These mysteries can literally cause supercomputers to have nervous breakdowns from pondering imponderables. One would think that the cosmologist would be more likely than most to recognize the genius of God.
Researchers recently gave a supercomputer the task of calculating the results of gravitational collapse of a huge collection of matter in space. The result was what scientists call an “infinity.” This means that the answer to the mathematical problem is so complex that no scientist can calculate it. Even the most powerful computer in the world is not up to the task! The team that arrived at the incomprehensible answer admits that modern science really knows very little about the nature of the cosmos.
Cosmologists know that the universe is not an accident. They expect the universe to have laws and make sense. As they learn more about the universe, they are gaining an even greater appreciation for the Mind from which the universe has come. The study of cosmology has led even some of the most-hardened atheists to admit that sometimes the idea of a Creator God does not seem so far-fetched.
God is so far above us in His thoughts and power that it seems hard to believe that He desires a relationship with each of us. Yet, in His Word, He tells us that over and over again. He cannot lie, so every word in His Word is true. It is incomprehensible that God Almighty loves us like a Father, like a brother, like a husband, but so much more. All we know of love is earthly relationships, but He is so much more. Only because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, can we come a way to knowing this love through the Holy Spirit.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.
9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
10 For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
And do not return there without watering the earth
And making it produce and sprout,
And providing seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
11 So will My word be which goes out of My mouth;
It will not return to Me empty,
Without accomplishing what I desire,
And without succeeding in the purpose for which I sent it.
