We read in Job 37:14-18, “Listen to this, Job; stop and consider God's wonders. Do you know how God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash? Do you know how the clouds hang poised, those wonders of him who is perfect in knowledge? You who swelter in your clothes when the land lies hushed under the south wind, can you join him in spreading out the skies, hard as a mirror of cast bronze?”

If by God’s grace, through His Holy Spirit He would lead you to “stop and consider God’s wonders” – to behold His Attractiveness – will you end up unrepentant, unlike Job?

If He would open your mind to know not only His creative work, but also His sacrificial work to save you – will you not acknowledge your great need for the Savior?

And if you would hear His wondrous call and ask you, “Would you discredit my justice? Would you condemn me to justify yourself?” (Job 40:8.) – what will be your response?

Would you choose to ignore, or resist Him, though you are aware of His Great Attractiveness?

Or, would you be attracted to His wonders and, like Job, you also humbly and willingly say: "My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you. Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes" (Job 42:5-6)?
