Control the Hawk?


God to Job:

“Is it by your understanding that the hawk soars
and spreads his wings toward the south?
Is it at your command that the eagle mounts up
and makes his nest on high?”


In Job 39, we see a list of animals that Job can’t in any sense govern or rule. Adam was given dominion over the animals in the garden, but this dominion was lost after the fall of the human race into sin. God’s point is that Job has no control over these creatures, and doesn’t even  know the extent of their activity.  God is sovereign over every move. How crazy to think that Job could control the flight of birds.  And crazier still to think that his strength could match a horse’s great power. Time has come for Job to admit his lack of control and God’s complete control.  Round 1 over. Round 2 in Chapter 40
