“If God were small enough to be understood, he would not be big enough to be worshipped.” - Evelyn Hill

Proverbs 1:7
Fear of the LORD is the foundation (beginning) of true knowledge. NLT

Our image, idea, and thoughts of God are too small

The author wants us to focus on the questions raised by Job’s suffering and God’s response

Job 1:1
He was blameless—a man of complete integrity. He feared God and stayed away from evil. NLT

Satan: Accuser, Prosecutor

Serve God because He blesses you: (Job 1:9-11)

Take everything Job loves and values (Job 1:12)

Why am I suffering?

The mystery of Job’s suffering remained (So many questions and so few answers)

God asks Job more than 60 questions

God asks questions to give Job perspective

The Book of Job teaches: GOD’S POWER IS SOVEREIGN

God might choose to display his glory on the platform and stage of our suffering


Job 42:3
Who is this that questions my wisdom with such ignorance? NLT

Romans 11:33
Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! ESV

Job 42:3
Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know.

The Book of Job teaches: GOD’S PURPOSES WILL PREVAIL

God uses suffering to bring us back to Him (Jonah)

God uses suffering to save (Joseph)

God uses suffering to strengthen our love of Him (Job)

The Book of Job teaches: GOD’S PRESENCE IS PRESENT

Job 19:25
I know that my redeemer lives and that in the end he will stand on the earth.

In your pain and suffering, you can have His presence

Job 42:5-6
I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. 6 I take back everything I said, and I sit in dust and ashes to show my repentance. NLT

When we see the beauty of Christ, we focus less on “the why” and focus more on “the Who”

Psalm 16:11
In your presence is the fullness of joy, and at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
