BOOK OF JOB
Job (rhymes with robe) is the 18th book of the bible between the book of Esther and Psalms. Job was a wealthy and godly man who lost everything he owned including his children and his health! Job did not understand why he was suffering. Job’s friends came and wrongly assumed this suffering was a punishment for him and they had a lot to say to Job, but Job stood firm. He knew that God was not mad at him. He sat in silence while his friends spoke until he couldn’t be quiet anymore.
Job’s replies to his friends and his cries to the Lord are all written in this book. Finally God answers Job. We learn that God is in control of this world and only he understands why the good are allowed to suffer. No matter what happens in our life, we must remain faithful and committed to him. In suffering we learn that all we need is God. We must love Him in our good times and in our bad times. Sometimes the things we face are difficult, but this is our testing time. Your difficult situations can bring you closer to God. Those who endure their difficult times of their faith will experience God’s great reward in the end.
