Job 1:21 “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.”

Even though Job was grief-stricken and in misery, he quietly submitted to God’s sovereignty. We read about his steadfast patience in James 5:10-11, “Brothers, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the Name of the Lord. As you know we consider blessed those who have preserved. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.” Suffering well is first acknowledging that everything belongs to God. Or as I Timothy 6:7 says, “We brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.” Secondly, God is a good God and only does what is good. (Psalm 119:68)…He will never leave nor reject us and is constantly watching out over us.
