Elihu continues his speech to Job with descriptions of God’s majesty. As he is listing these powers, he rhetorically asks Job if he is God’s partner in His work. In the following chapter (38) we read the continued questioning of Job, but this time the questions come from God. Verse 1 tells us that God is talking to Job from a whirlwind and He tells Job to be prepared. “Dress for action like a man; I will question you, and you make it known to me.” (Job 38:3) I would imagine Job was a little scared at this point since he is being told by God to bring forth his best effort. Like Job, none of us can compare to the majesty of our Heavenly Father. The good news is that we do not have to compare to Him. We just need to be willing to follow Him with all of our being and let Him take care of us.
