Who Are We?

The Book of Job always fills me with hope, because it gives me perspective, and ultimately guidance, throughout the valleys of my life. I have therefore been rereading this incredible dialect between Job and his friends, and then Job and God, Himself

Yet, in Chapter 7:17-18, I pause at Job’s question, and I also ask the question: Who am I? Who am I, to God, that He would think about me, or even about us?

As a new Christian, still broken to this world, I used to find it unfathomable that the Creator of the Universe would even contemplate thinking of me. Yet, I now come to realise that Job would not have experienced the intimacy of a relationship, with God, as we currently do, because of Jesus Christ

Job’s question is something that took me a long time to comprehend because it comes down to love. God loves us, because He is love, and we are His children, and therefore, He wants what is best for us – even if that means walking with us through circumstances that take us to breaking point, just as we read in Job

Friends, I have come to realise that the tough times are what draw us closer to God, for His comfort, and peace. Yet, it is in those moments that I realise just how much God must really love us

What I mean by this, is that, we must be so much more to God than we can ever comprehend because He would never take such time with us if we didn’t mean anything to Him; and then I think of Scripture, such as, Psalm 139 where we read that God has intricately knitted us together within the womb

I hope that I can encourage us this morning, that life is not about faith in our healing, our breakthrough, or a change in our circumstances, but this life is about faith in Him alone, and therefore, just like Job, it’s honouring God for Who He is

God’s is self-existent and yet, He intrinsically loves us. In other words: God doesn’t need us, yet He loves us anyway

“What are people, that you should make so much of us, that you should think of us so often? For you examine us every morning and test us every moment.”

Job‬ ‭7:17-18
