When an Idea Doesn’t Make Sense

I was in food store. A thought flashed across my mind, “Buy celery.” I argued in my head. We don’t like celery.” The thought came again. “Buy celery.” I argued again. “When I buy celery, we throw most of it away.”

My young daughter came home with a note from her teacher. “Can you please send celery to school tomorrow?”

I learned a lesson that day. When an idea or thought just doesn’t make sense, it could be from God.

What if God asked you what he asked Job?

I read Job 38-40 as though God were speaking to me. I was silenced and overwhelmed by God’s greatness.

Here’s some of what God asked:
Where you there when I laid the foundations of the earth (Job 38:4)?
Have you ever commanded the morning to appear (Job 38:12)?
Do you know where the gates of death are located (Job 38:17)?
Are you as strong as G
od (Job 40:9)?

What is your response?
