Job, a man after Gods own heart, is a true example of Godly faith and what it means to trust God. Even though he was tempted to lose faith by going through so many trials and tribulations, Job went to God with all his worries and never allowed his love and trust in God wane. Today I want to take a look at a couple of points we can take away from Jobs love of God.
1. GOD understands and has plans for all but we are the one who question because we do not understand.
Then the LORD answered Job out of the storm. He said: “Who is this that darkens my counsel with words without knowledge? Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me. “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? – Job 38:1-5
2. GOD does so many unbelievable things we should not lack faith in our lives.
“From whose womb comes the ice? Who gives birth to the frost from the heavens when the waters become hard as stone, when the surface of the deep is frozen? “Can you bind the beautiful Pleiades? Can you loose the cords of Orion? Can you bring forth the constellations in their seasons or lead out the Bear with its cubs Do you know the laws of the heavens? Can you set up [God’s] dominion over the earth? “Can you raise your voice to the clouds and cover yourself with a flood of water? Do you send the lightning bolts on their way? Do they report to you,`Here we are’? Job 38:29-35
3. GOD accepts forgiveness he forgets your sins.
“After the LORD had said these things to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “I am angry with you and your two friends, because you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has. So now take seven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and sacrifice a burnt offering for yourselves. My servant Job will pray for you, and I will accept his prayer and not deal with you according to your folly. You have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has.” So Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite did what the LORD told them; and the LORD accepted Job’s prayer. After Job had prayed for his friends, the LORD made him prosperous again and gave him twice as much as he had before.” Job 42:7-10
Hopefully you was encouraged by a couple of these pointers; the book of Job is filled with so much more spiritual knowledge and takeaways, that you should take the time to divulge in and study out.
