Job and his friends ask God a laundry list of “Why?” questions.
Why did this happen? Why did God not prevent it? Why does God allow such pain and loss?
Those ancient questions are much different than the ones we ask God today.
Situations. Circumstances. Experiences. Many of them leaving us asking, “Why?”
Yet in the book of Job, God never answers the “Why?” Instead, when God finally breaks the silence in Job 38, He chooses to take Job on the safari of a lifetime.
In this breathtaking speech delivered by the Creator of the Universe, Job is invited by the designer of the cosmos to reflect on the constellations of the night’s sky (Job 38:31-33) and the cumulus clouds of a summer’s day (Job 38:34-38) through different lenses. More than a tour from the zookeeper or botanist, the Creator of All embarks alongside Job on a sacred safari that includes donkeys (Job 39:5), wild ox (Job 39:9), ostriches (Job 39:13), hawks (Job 39:26), eagles (Job 39:27) and much, much more.
And neither should we.
Creation is never to be worshiped, but creation beckons us to seek God and worship the Creator.
The wonders found in creation should draw us upward in praise, worship, and celebration of God.
Throughout creation, we have countless opportunities to catch glimpses of God’s handiwork and admire different facets of His character that will leave us wonderstruck.
Yet all too often, we find ourselves indoors. Inside. Staring at screens instead of breathtaking scenes.
Through seven sessions filmed in the Canadian Rockies including Lake Louise, let’s explore the wonders of God as found in the Scripture. Together, our eyes will be opened to the wonder of God’s presence, the wonder of friendship, the wonder of forgiveness, and so much more.
Invite your neighbors, co-workers, small group, Sunday school class, long-distance BFF, and more to walk alongside you, pray for you, and fall more in love with God’s Word together.
