Job: The Book

“For I know that my Redeemer lives, and He shall stand at last on the earth; and after my skin is destroyed, this I know, that in my flesh I shall see God” (Job 19:25, 26).

Many a sufferer has found great comfort in studying this wonderful book of the Old Testament. The following are some themes I found that may be helpful to you:

  • Does man fear God for nothing? (Job 1:9)
  • God controls Satan (Job 1:12; 2:6; II Thessalonians 3:3)
  • Suffering doesn’t always result from sin (Job 1:22; 2:3, 10)
  • Trusting God in impossible situations (Job 13:15)
  • Why the righteous suffer and the wicked prosper (Job 21:7ff.)
  • Do I have a right to question God? (Job 38:2; 42:2ff.)
  • To reveal God (Job 38:4ff.)
  • To teach patience (James 1:3; 5:11)
  • Untested faith is not necessarily genuine (l Peter 1:7)
  • The “cross” (Job 1:13ff.) precedes the “crown” (Job 42:10)

 I hope this helps you, my fellow-sufferers.
