I'm working through reading through the whole Bible in one year. I'm following a chronological plan. It's been great so far. As I was reading through Job verse 9 really popped out at me. So I looked at it in several different translations.
"After all, he's famous for great and unexpected acts; there's no end to his surprises." Job 5:9 MSG
"He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted." Job 5:9 NIV
"He does great things that we cannot understand and miracles that we cannot count." Job 5:9 GW
"Doing great things, and there is no searching. Wonderful, till there is no numbering." Job 5:9 YLT
What I really saw through these verse was that God does things all the time for us. But we need to take the time to see them. I have missed seeing God. Have you?
Today, I chose to be surprised by God. And to see Him in the little things that I typically miss and give Him all the glory. What will you chose today? Try to see His surprises for a week. He will show you - maybe in a sun set or in the eyes of a child.
If anything remember this - "After all, he's famous for great and unexpected acts; there's no end to his surprises." Job 5:9 MSG
