22 Behold, God is exalted by His power; Who teaches like Him? 23 Who has assigned Him His way, Or who has said, ‘You have done wrong’? (Job 36:22–23, NKJV)
Sometimes people say, “Why should I trust God? What has he ever done for me?” Of course, God has done everything for us all (Acts 17:25). In today’s text, Elihu succinctly states four reasons for trusting God. We trust God because of His power and because of His knowledge. We also trust God because of His wisdom (no one counsels God on the way He should go). Finally, trust God because of His works (which are always righteous). God is sovereign over everyone and everything in the universe. That means God rules over us all. Honor His greatness and trust Him to accomplish His purposes. When your faith is tested (even as Job’s faith was tested long ago), do not grow weary and fall away. Renew your strength in the knowledge that God is over all and does all things well.
