Passage 80: God Ignores Those Who Claim to Be Wise

Reflection

We, humans, have claimed to be at our pinnacle.
We’ve become so proud and have claimed to be so wise that we forgot about God.
And therefore, we’ve to remember these Bible verses:

“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
    Tell me, if you have understanding.
Who determined its measurements—surely you know!
    Or who stretched the line upon it?
On what were its bases sunk,
    or who laid its cornerstone,
when the morning stars sang together
    and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

“Or who shut in the sea with doors
    when it burst out from the womb,
when I made clouds its garment
    and thick darkness its swaddling band,
10 and prescribed limits for it
    and set bars and doors,
11 and said, ‘Thus far shall you come, and no farther,
    and here shall your proud waves be stayed’?

Job 38:4-11

Prayer

Father in Heaven, we rely upon you for help.
We, humans, have been so proud of our intelligence and achievements.
We forgot where we were when you laid the foundations of the earth.
We claim to have known the origins of almost everything through our so-called sciences.
In the end, they are merely guesswork.

Father in Heaven, please continue to provide for our loved ones and us.
Protect us against any harm that our so-called science, technologies, and advancements could bring to us.
We, humans, have put our trust in them instead of putting our faith in you.
Bless us, oh Father, and the entire generations in our bloodline.
We pray, in the name of your son, Jesus, who is our King and Savior. Amen.
