The Book of Job is believed to be the oldest book of the bible.
Why was it the beginning of God’s story as told to man?
Could it be its wisdom is foundational if one desires a life of spiritual excellence?
Trusting Papa regardless of circumstances?
Job asked the questions all those of faith have asked.
Why do I suffer while the wicked enjoy life?
Why do those who despise and dishonor Papa receive blessings many of faith never experience?
Why would a holy and just God allow those who truly love Him to suffer?
For God’s glory!
Papa is sovereign! Who are we— His children to question either His motives or methods?
Our sole responsibility is to love and obey Him always!
Always means always— the bad times as well as the good times.
It is during the bad times— darkness when Christ’s love and compassion shine the brightest. Showcasing God’s glory dwelling in those who call Him both Lord and Papa.
Individuals who are Christ to a hurting world.
Loving their neighbors as themselves.
Blessing those who curse them.
Praying for those who hurt them.
Conquering evil with good.
Job eventually surrendered to God’s sovereignty and plan for his life. Praising God’s name no matter the circumstances.
Papa alone knows the beginning from the end.
For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not My ways. For as heaven is higher than earth, so My ways are higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.
