I really enjoyed my time in the Word today as I studied God’s four-chapter monologue at the end of the book of Job.
4 “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
Tell me, if you have understanding.
5 Who determined its measurements—surely you know!
Or who stretched the line upon it?
6 On what were its bases sunk,
or who laid its cornerstone,
7 when the morning stars sang together
and all the sons of God shouted for joy?”
Very poetic and beautiful as well as sarcastic. Verse 7 stood out the most. For some reason, I was struck by the creation’s response when God formed the earth. His angels as well as the “morning stars” (which may be a poetic way of referring to the angels) rejoiced over His work. It reminded me of how wonderful God’s creation is — that even His angels are awestruck and then overjoyed at what He has done. We too should take joy in our Father’s world.
Maybe I should take some time this week to get out of my office and go visit Hort Park or something. I know that it’s much easier to be an atheist when you’re cooped up in an office all day.
