God questions Job's might: Job 38:8-41

God poses questions to Job to show by comparison that His might if far greater than Job's. God is attempting to show Job his own limitations as compared to God.
"Have you ever in your life commanded the morning, And caused the dawn to know its place." (Job 38:12) "Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades, or loose the cords of Orion? Can you lead forth a constellation in its season, and guide the Bear with her satellites?" (Job 38:31-32) "Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, so that an abundance of water will cover you? Can you send forth lightnings that they may go and say to you, "Here we are'?" (Job 38:34-35) "Can you hunt the prey for the lion, or satisfy the appetite of the young lions, when they crouch in their dens and lie in wait in their lair?" (Job 38:39-40)
These are things that God does every day. The power to do these things belong to God, not to man. God is all powerful, we are not!
