Job 38:12,13"Have you ever given orders to the morning, or shown the dawn its place, that it might take the earth by the edges and shake the wicked out of it? "
God is questioning Job now. Reminding him that while Job was innocent of wrongdoing, he does not have all the answers. Only God knows the reasons why.It is His decision to make them known in His time.
Ever wondered who pulled back the veil & showed us the behinds the scenes of heaven?
God did.
He inspired the writer of Job to know the whole story & record it for us.
Why?
So that when we face those Job-like moments we can be sure there is more going on then what we see in front of us. Prov 25:2"It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings."
But can we really know? 1 Pet 2:9,10"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy."
That mercy includes one day seeing behind the veil of heaven in our own lives. Matt 10:26 "So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known."
Keep holding on to God's word. Seek out His people. Do not live in fear. We will not always be able to understand what is going on but we can trust God's plan.
God reveals the end of all things to Apostle John in the book of Revelation chapters 19-21, God rules so we win. Don't give up, don't let defeat rule. Rom 8:37-39 "No, in all these things we are more than conquerors throu him who loved us. 4 I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able 2 separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
