"Have you visited the storehouses of the snow or seen the storehouses of hail?" (NLT)
Job was having a discussion with God. This chapter begins with these words, "Then the Lord answered Job from the whirlwind: 'Who is this that questions my wisdom with such ignorant words?'" At this point Job must have realized that he had spoken amiss. I've done that and my guess is that you may have done the same at some point. It didn't take a whirlwind for God to get my attention, but I did know that I had trampled on shaky ground. When God was done questioning Job, Job said in chapter 42, verse 6, "I take back everything I said, and I sit in dirt and ashes to show my repentance." God, in His compassion , responded as shown in verse 10, "When Job prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes. In fact, the Lord gave him twice as much as before." God, in His compassion forgave me and has given me much more that I could ever hope for. The point is: Even when we get angry at God and question Him, He remains compassionate and eager to forgive when we repent. The key word on our part is "repent."
