“How was YOUR day, Job?”

NO ONE has ever had a day like Job had. Between loss of children, belongings, health, etc., his experience had to eclipse that of anyone this side of Christ on the cross.

Yet, in spite of all of this, he worshipped God (1:20), accepted the “trouble” from God (NOT Satan, 2:10) and vowed to trust Him, “though He slay me” (13:15).

And all this without ever reading the book that is his namesake! Extraodinary!

How was he able to do this? He listened with his faith, NOT his feelings. Job filtered his experience through solid doctrineGod is Sovereign, God is Just, God is Good.
