Learning From Job

Job was suffering on every level of his life. He was in pain from various physical problems, his friends had failed him, he had financial loss and death of his children. Even his wife had told him to curse God and die (Job 2:9). So in verse (Job 7:11) Job is at his breaking point, he can no longer remain silent and he pours out his heart to God.
While we may not have had the tragedies in our lives that Job had, we have all gone through some form of hardship in life. Those times when it feels as though God is not hearing our pleas because our suffering remains. But rest assured that God is right there in the middle of our troubles and even though it seems as though He does not care because our problems remain, He will perfect all that concerns us (Psalm 138:8) in His timing, not ours.
If you read the entire account of Job’s life you will see that God restored to him even more than what he had lost! Job remained faithful to God in the midst of his tragedies and God showed him and all around him that God loved Job!
We know from Scripture that God will never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5), and that He will work all things out for our good (Romans 8:28). We are also told that God is for us, so who can be against us (Romans 8:31)?  With such wonderful promises from God we can be confident that He will always care for us as His children. If He allows unpleasant circumstances to take place in our life, He will also provide the strength to endure these times as well!  Aren’t you thankful for the love, mercy, and grace that God bestows on us each day?  Praise His Holy name!
