We come to the last chapter of Job. We learned from the first chapters that Job had a list of things that happened to him. He and his three friends tried to make sense of it, but still face the Lord’s rebuke. When Job finally realized that God is God and nothing escapes Him, he says the above verse.
Job heard of God and knew of God but now because of everything that has happened, he can see Him clearly. Sometimes that is the case with us, isn’t it? We think we know God and we think we know why He is allowing for this to happen. But what we can’t see is the reason why God allows us to go through various trials. Romans 8:28 tells us “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
I’ve heard of you, but now I see You.
