Book of Job Series: Conclusion
Wow! You made it through the book of Job, and that is an accomplishment you should be proud of! For many people, it is a difficult book to get through, but God blesses us when we read His Word. What did you learn about God through reading Job? What did you learn about people? What did you learn about yourself? Here is what I learned, in conclusion:
God: I learned that God is good in all His ways, that He is patient, and that He is merciful. God is the creator of the universe, and He is mighty and just. Everything that He does is good, and we don’t deserve the good gifts He bestows upon us.
People: I learned that we cannot listen to everything that everyone says. And not just everyone, but even our friends. We must weigh everything with Scripture. If it is not in Scripture, we must take those words with a grain of salt.
Myself: I learned that it is more wise to stay silent in many situations. When someone is hurting, maybe they just need someone to listen to them or a shoulder to cry on. I also learned that the difficult situations I go through are not always because of something I did wrong, but I can still trust in God through those things because He is faithful.
We all experience trials, but many of us won’t experience anything close to what Job did. Even though we won’t necessarily go through the extreme trials of Job, it still isn’t easy! But when we look to God and remember who He is, we can continue to have hope and joy because we have something to look forward to. Don’t lose sight of what is truly important, and we must remember that our treasures are stored up in Heaven! Thank you so much for reading these articles, and I hope God has revealed some truth to you through reading them. I love you and am praying for you!
“’Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.’” Matthew 6:19-21
