It tells us in the first Chapter of Job that he was a patient, upright man whose trust in God couldn’t be shaken even when tremendous loss and physical suffering came into his life. The balance of the rest of this Book demonstrates how despite all these difficult trials, Job determined in his mind to hold on to his faith…though he really didn’t understand why this was happening to him. For us, it can help explain how God, in His benevolence and wisdom, allows all – both Believer and unbeliever to suffer. First, it exposes our frailties and shows us just how dependent we really are on Him…and secondly, it allows us to strengthen our devotion as we are forced to walk by faith and not by sight. Finally, like Job, it shows us if we persevere without growing weary, we will be blessed in the end.
