    42 Then Job replied to the Lord:

    2 “I know that you can do all things;
    no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
    3 You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge?’
    Surely I spoke of things I did not understand,
    things too wonderful for me to know.

    4 “You said, ‘Listen now, and I will speak;
    I will question you,
    and you shall answer me.’
    5 My ears had heard of you
    but now my eyes have seen you.

    6 Therefore I despise myself
    and repent in dust and ashes.”

    It bought Job to repentance. It revealed that God was so great that He was far beyond his understanding

    Job had heard of God, but now he had seen Him.

    What would you go through to actually see God with your own eyes ?
