"Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb,
when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped it in thick darkness,
when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place,
when I said, 'This far you may come and no farther;
here is where your proud waves halt?'''
- Job 38:8-11

'God's sovereign knowing is so beyond our control and knowledge
that acting like we're his GPS or
like He's our personal valet is not just laughable but sinful ...
Nobody gets to counsel God.
Nobody gets to give God advice.
Nobody gets to straighten God's path.
- Matt Chandler, The Explicit Gospel
