Loosing everything…

Job-Suffering

Job lost everything he had, which was a lot…

His children all died in one horrific event, his possessions stripped away in one day, home, family, health – all gone..

Why did God allow it..? Job loved God and kept His ways, so why this?

Job suffered greatly and his friends came to “comfort” him. The told him it was because he was evil. Even his friends couldn’t comfort him, or offer him reliable answers.

Job speaks to God:

“I am unworthy—how can I reply to you?
I put my hand over my mouth.
I spoke once, but I have no answer—
twice, but I will say no more.”

God speaks to Job:

“Would you discredit my justice?
Would you condemn me to justify yourself?
Do you have an arm like God’s,
and can your voice thunder like his?
Then adorn yourself with glory and splendor,
and clothe yourself in honor and majesty.”

God shows Job, that there is no one like Him, and no one but Him to come to.

Job sees that LORD like never before,

“My ears had heard of you
but now my eyes have seen you.
Therefore I despise myself
and repent in dust and ashes.”

Job remains faithful to God even in the extreme suffering..

God sends trouble, and permits suffering, so that we might understand and come to Him. This is our single hope, and only way to eternal blessing. God showed His love to Job, and gave back to him, more than he had before…
