From BibleHub Job 11:18

  • *Benson Commentary
    Job 11:18-19. Thou shalt be secure, because there is hope — Thy mind shall be quiet and free from terrors, because thou shalt have a firm and well-grounded confidence in God. Thou shalt dig — Either to fix thy tents, which, after the manner of the Arabians, were removed from place to place; or, to plough thy ground, as he had done, Job 1:14, or to make a fence about thy dwelling Thou shalt take thy rest in safety — Free from dangers and the fear of them; because of God’s fatherly providence watching over thee, when thou canst not watch over thyself. And none shall make thee afraid — Thou shalt be in perfect peace, and none shall disquiet thee; yea, many shall make suit unto thee — Desiring thy favour and friendship, because of thy great power and riches, and eminent felicity.

None Can Fathom

May 19, 2017

Job 11:7-8Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? 8 They are higher than the heavens—what can you do? They are deeper than the depths of the grave— what can you know?

Psalm 145:3 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; His greatness no one can fathom.

A Song:
No eye has seen
No ear has heard –Is 64:4;1Co 2:9
None can fathom
Or imagine
Great are You Lord
Great are You Lord
None can fathom how great You are Lord!
.

.
Isaiah 40:13-14,28 Who can fathom the Spirit of the Lord, or instruct the Lord as His counselor? 14 Whom did the Lord consult to enlighten Him, and who taught Him the right way? Who was it that taught Him knowledge, or showed Him the path of understanding? …
… 28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no-one can fathom{His wisdom has no limit}.

From NetBible Isa 40:28

  • *Exiled Israel’s complaint (v27) implies that God might be limited in some way. Perhaps he, like so many of the pagan gods, has died. Or perhaps his jurisdiction is limited to Judah and does not include Babylon. Maybe he is unable to devise an adequate plan to rescue his people, or is unable to execute it. But v28 affirms that he is not limited temporally or spatially nor is his power and wisdom restricted in any way. He can and will deliver his people, if they respond in hopeful faith (v31a).

No Eye Has Seen

May 18, 2017

NoEye

1 Corinthians 2:9 “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him.”

Set your love on the Lord
Be totally devoted to HimPs 91:14
You will taste and see that the Lord is good
How blessed is the one who trusts in Him!Ps 34:8

No eye has seen or even imagined
A God like You Lord, who intervenes and acts
On behalf of those who wait for Him.
Isa 64:4

Praise You Lord Jesus
You are able to do far beyond all that we ask or think
Eph 3:20 
You are able to do the impossible! – Lk1:36-37

Psalm 91:14-16 AMPC
14 Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high{protect him}, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.

Psalm 9:10 AMPC
10 And they who know Your name [who have experience and acquaintance with Your mercy] will lean on and confidently put their trust in You, for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek (inquire of and for) You [on the authority of God’s Word and the right of their necessity].
