Job 40:2

Job 40:2…”Will the one who contends with the Almighty correct him? Let him who accuses God answer him!” After God had shown Job by his ignorance of the works of nature, how unable he was to question the methods and designs of Providence, he puts this convincing question to him (verse 2, Will the one who contends with the Almighty correct Him?). Now Job began to melt into godly sorrow. When his friends reasoned with him, he did not listen, but God’s word is powerful. We must humbly submit to God and recognize that we are not Him. He is our Master, and we are His subjects. He is omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent, and we are not. He is wise, and we are foolish. His path for us was planned before the creation of the world, and He set His affection on us before He made the universe. He chose us to be part of His plan of salvation (we did not choose Him; John 15:16), so our response should be grateful repentance and faith in His Son.
