But my salvation will last forever,
My righteousness will never fail.
Almighty God did not design us to be self-sufficient. He created us to require authority so that we may desire to live safely under His rule. Satan wants to deceive us by thinking that we are our own boss and that we can accomplish our goals in our own strengths.
Believing that God's rule is right requires faith and trust. Faith to know that He alone is God and that He has worked it all out for our good.
In the book of Job, chapter 38 and on the Lord speaks sternly to Job. The Lord goes on to pose Job a list of questions which are meant to give Job the understanding that God is omniscient, omnipotent, all powerful. God doesn't need our advice or our input on anything that has to do with us. He is more than capable to resolve it ALL on our behalf.
The ending of this book brings so much hope to my heart because Job sees his own humanity and how frail and momentary man is.
If you have questioned that the Lord's rule is right repent like Job in chapter 42:6 "Therefore I take back my words and repent in dust and ashes." It took much humility on Job's part to admit his own life is but a breath.
I am determined to break free from any thought that I have to figure anything out on my own.
I put my trust in the Lord.
He alone is worthy!
