“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein, for he has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers.” ~ Psalm 24:1-2
Try to imagine your entire world shifting in a matter of days. Your children have passed, your livestock is destroyed, your spouse is experiencing a crisis of faith, your friends blame you for it all, and your health is quickly diminishing. Perhaps you have spent many hours looking out over the fields that have been devastated by a havoc-wreaking storm. You spent warm afternoons there picking fruit with your little ones, but those days seem like a distant dream now.
This sort of tragedy is the backdrop for Job’s encounter with the King of all. Like Isaiah when he was called to ministry, the vision Job was about to experience would alter his speech and perspective forever. In the thirty-eighth chapter of his book, God speaks to Job out of a whirlwind. For over two solid chapters, God reveals His sovereignty and wisdom throughout the entire universe. He introduces Himself as the Creator of the oceans, the highest trees, and even outer space. The unsurpassable vastness of the King is the theme of this poetic disquisition.
Just like Job, we often encounter the majesty of Christ in the most distressing times of our lives. When our foundation is shattering beneath us, we find that our lives and troubles will pass away, but God Himself remains unshaken. Our good King, Jesus, is in control, so we can have confidence in the days to come. He is with us, and all of creation is under His mighty rule.
Question for Reflection: In what way could we have a greater acknowledgment of the Kingship of Christ in our world?
