The whispering wall in New York City’s Grand Central Station is an acoustic oasis from the clamor of the area. This unique spot allows people to communicate quiet messages from a distance of thirty feet apart. When one person stands at the base of a granite archway and speaks softly into the wall, soundwaves travel up and over the curved stone to the listener on the other side.

Job heard the whisper of a message when his life was filled with noise and the tragedy of losing nearly everything (see Job 1:13–19; 2:7). His friends blabbered their opinions, his own thoughts tumbled endlessly, and trouble had invaded every aspect of his existence. Still, the majesty of nature spoke softly to him about God’s divine power.

The splendor of the skies, the mystery of the earth suspended in space, and the stability of the horizon reminded Job that the world was in the palm of God’s hand (26:7–11). Even a churning sea and a rumbling atmosphere led him to say, “these are but the outer fringe of [God’s] works; how faint the whisper we hear of him” (v. 14).

If the world’s wonders represent just a tiny fragment of God’s capabilities, it’s clear that His power exceeds our ability to understand it. In times of brokenness and disappointment, this gives us hope. God can do anything, including what He did for Job as He sustained him during suffering.

Welcome to today's encouragement from Our Daily Bread. Our reading, titled Just a Whisper, was written by Jennifer Benson Schult. The Whispering Wall in New York City's Grand Central Station is an acoustic oasis from the clamor of the area.

This unique spot allows people to communicate quiet messages from a distance of 30 feet. When one person stands at the base of a granite archway and speaks softly into the wall, sound waves travel up and over the curved stone to the listener on the other side. Job heard the whisper of a message when his life was filled with noise and the tragedy of losing nearly everything.

His friends blabbered their opinions, his own thoughts tumbled endlessly, and trouble had invaded every aspect of his existence. Still, the majesty of nature spoke softly to him about God's divine power. The splendor of the skies, the mystery of the earth suspended in space, and the stability of the horizon reminded Job that the world was in the palm of God's hand. Even a churning sea and a rumbling atmosphere led him to say, These are but the outer fringe of God's works, how faint the whisper we hear of him. If the world's wonders represent just a fragment of God's capabilities, it's clear that his power exceeds our ability to understand it. In times of brokenness, this gives us hope. God can do anything, including what he did for Job, as he sustained him during suffering.

Today's Our Daily Bread devotional scripture reading is from Job chapter 26 verses 7 through 14. He spreads out the northern skies over empty space. He suspends the earth over nothing. He wraps up the waters in his clouds, yet the clouds do not burst under their weight. He covers the face of the full moon, spreading his clouds over it. He marks out the horizon on the face of the waters for a boundary between light and darkness. The pillars of the heavens quake, aghast at his rebuke. By his power, he churned up the sea. By his wisdom, he cut Rahab to pieces. By his breath, the skies became fair.

His hand pierced the gliding serpent. And these are but the outer fringe of his works, how faint the whisper we hear of him. Who then can understand the thunder of his power? Let's pray. Dear God, when our problems seem big, help us remember that you're bigger and nothing is impossible for you. Strengthen our faith and help us to place trust in you to meet our every need and to carry us through. Thank you, Lord. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen. Thank you for listening today. My name is Brenna Holzgla, and today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread Ministries.
