Can you answer?

The LORD questioned Job,
He called to him from the storm,
His voice would thunder:

What can you make known?
Who darkens counsel by words?
Job, can you answer?

And where were you when
The earth’s foundations were laid?
Do you remember?

Did your skillful hands
Make boundaries for the sea?
What was their measure?

Can you make snowflakes?
Can you lift the clouds and rain?
Control the weather?

Who argues with God?
Did you form the mouth to speak?
Can you answer me?

Job 38 – 42:6

And the LORD said to Job:

“Shall a faultfinder contend with the Almighty?
He who argues with God, let him answer it.”

Then Job answered the LORD and said:

Behold, I am of small account; what shall I answer you?
I lay my hand on my mouth.
I have spoken once, and I will not answer;
twice, but I will proceed no further (Job 40:1-5).”

 

God’s Art

sunset-3325080_1920See the sun set in the west,
Clouds colored their very best,
God’s art showcased in the sky.
Watch the moon change waxing by,
As the stars dance in the night,
God’s art dazzles in the dark.

You paint with brushes of grace,
And shape Your pottery from clay,

You create and display Your art,
You make us new and set apart,
You make us new,
You make us new.

You dip Your brush in crimson,
Prepare Your works for heaven,
Each stroke sanctifies the soul.
You preserve Your pottery,
Baptized by fiery sea,
Your art is a masterpiece.

Every shade of color, tint, and hue,
Give reason to worship You,
Mighty oceans and the sky of blue,
Give reason to worship You.

The Amazing Artist:

The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork (Psalm 19:1 ESV).

But now, O LORD, you are our Father;
we are the clay, and you are our potter;
we are all the work of your hand (Isaiah 64:8 ESV).

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV).

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them (Ephesians 2:10 ESV).
