Scripture: Job 37:23-24, Colossians 1:25-28
Job 37:23-24, “As for the Almighty, we cannot find Him; He is excellent in power, In judgment and abundant justice; He does not oppress. Therefore men fear Him; He shows no partiality to any who are wise of heart.” One version says He is too much. This passage says volumes about Who He is and Who He is ready to be. He is truly excellent in judgment and in abundant justice. God is ready to show off in our behalf but it is up to us to ask Him. We have to call forth the judicial Hand of God to save us exactly like the Israelites called on God to save them from the bondage of Egypt. The same God, the same judgment. Why are we waiting? We need to step out with a listening ear and be willing and obedient to pray this way at God’s direction! Colossians 1:25-28 says, “…of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.” This passage speaks to the fact that through God’s wisdom we grow up unto Him. His wisdom leads us to the God Who is too much. He has a pattern in Scripture. He is there for us. He is ready to move in our behalf and surely we are ready to tap into the fullness of what He’s offering always remembering that it’s His eternal purposes and not our flesh or personal revenge as our prayer-goal!
