The power that controls waves can control rebellion. Nothing can happen in any part of the universe without the knowledge of Him who is omnipresent. Not a single event of human life is unknown to our Maker. While Satan is constantly devising evil, the Lord our God overrules all, so that it will not harm his obedient, trusting children. The same Power that controls the boisterous waves of the ocean can hold in check all the power of rebellion and crime. God say to one as to the other, “This far you shall go and no farther.”
He would have us make Him our protector and our guide in all the duties and affairs of life. SDA Bible Commentary: Comments on Job 38.
