What is the essential thing we need that will allow us to look back on a life well-lived? The bottom-line answer the Bible gives is, “Wisdom.”
The deepest depths of despair can be the times when we see our hope more clearly. Our passage today will focus on what may be Job’s most triumphant expression of faith.
The greater our difficulties become, the more deeply God asks us to trust him. Deeper trust grows out of a deepening relationship with God.
God is sovereign, even when we—or loved ones— go through horrible things; rest in the hope of His redemption.
Job 4-7.mp3 (Caid Ferguson)
The Book of Job confronts problems that we may not want to think about:
- The Problem of Evil
- The Problem of Suffering
- The Problem of the Silence of God
Any Christian who masters the Book of Job goes a long way toward ensuring success in the Christian life.
God never stops working. When he seems least visible and you feel you need him most – he may be most active of all.
