“Surely God will never do wickedly, Nor will the Almighty pervert justice. Who gave Him charge over the earth? Or who appointed Him over the whole world? If He set His heart on it, If He should gather to Himself His Spirit and His breath, All flesh would perish together, And man would return to dust.” Job 34:12-15 NKJV
Can God be wicked? Can the Lord pervert justice? No, He cannot!
Creation is the work of God’s hands. Jesus ordained the spiritual laws that rule over the unseen realm. He set in place the natural laws that govern the physical realm. The Lord put moral laws in the heart of man in order to sanctify us.
God was not given authority over the earth. No one appointed Him to rule over it. The great I Am is not subject to anyone or anything at anytime. He is set apart above and over all things!
We exist because God does. Jesus is holding creation together. Nothing can exist outside of the Lord.
Evil does exist but it is not of God. The Lord gave free will to some of His created beings. The devil was one of them. He led a rebellion against the Most High. One third of the angels joined him. Adam and Eve chose to believe the devils lies instead of trusting God.
God could have abandoned creation and allowed Satan to rule over it. He did not. He will not. He sent Jesus to bring us back into His blessing and protection. Our Heavenly Father did it because He loves us!
God created us to be loved by Him. He created us to love Him. God is love!
God loved Job before He laid the foundations of the earth in place. It was His purpose from the beginning to use Job. God chose to display His power and might over heaven and earth through Job. The Lord used Job to display His wisdom and mercy.
God planned from the beginning of creation to use Job to reveal how much He loves us!
Jesus wants you to know He is kind and merciful. He is long suffering and patient. He is a forgiving God. Jesus loved you before the foundations of the world were put in place!
Jesus has plans to use you. Those plans include trial and testing. Do not charge God with wickedness. The Lord does not pervert justice. God opposes wickedness. He upholds justice. He dispenses wisdom as He sees fit.
Lift your hands and praise Jesus. Worship Jesus. Honor Jesus. Live in a way that gives glory to Jesus’ holy name!
Only Almighty God is worthy of praise, honor, worship and glory!
