God’s Résumé

by John Michalak

The LORD is exalted, for he dwells on high. He has filled Zion with justice and righteousness. There will be stability in your times, abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge. The fear of the LORD is your treasure. For the LORD is our judge. The LORD is our lawgiver. The LORD is our king. He will save us.

Isaiah 33:5-6, 22

Most often, a résumé is required when applying for a job. A résumé provides evidence—through details of an applicant’s education and training, job experience, and accomplishments—that the person seeking employment has the qualifications to do good work in the future. A person’s past provides a strong clue to the strength of their performance going forward.

Whether we admit it or not, we interview God over and over again to decide whether we’d like to hire Him—to guide us, sustain us, to direct our path going forward.

But, what’s on God’s résumé?

He is exalted and dwells on high. He’s constantly filled the lives of His chosen ones with justice and righteousness. He has outstanding experience as a Judge, Lawgiver, and King. Reviewing God’s résumé, it seems clear that He’s qualified to bring stability to our times and to offer us an abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge.

While it’s foolish to keep interviewing God, it’s not a bad idea to review His résumé from time to time. You’ll remember why He’s the most qualified Master and Lord of your life there is.
