“Do you know the laws of the heavens? Did you give God authority over the earth?” (Job 38:33)… “As long as earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.”(Gen. 8)…“There is a time and a season for every activity under heaven”… “I know that everything God does will endure forever.” (Ecc.3)
To Job, God declares that He is in control and just as there are seasons in the climate He has established, there are seasons of life. God has ordained that things will come and then pass. There will be times of plenty and times of want, times of joy and times of sadness, times of toil and times of rest. The coming spring reminds me that there is the hope of life, of a future provided by God. He has said it will be so, so it will be as He has said. The weather, the world, our future…He is in control. That is a relief!
