  1. Every single time I read anything about Job I have the same thought: “Lord, I don’t want to be like Job.”

    I know that’s not exactly the right Christian girl answer. But it is true. I pray I can see God’s truth and hope without ever knowing the loss that Job knew.

  2. Wow! This was so good. The story of Job amazes me – the faith he had! Thank you for reminding me of this amazing story of redemption!

  3. I think I’m correct in remembering that Job is the oldest book in the Bible, and yet even then, rumors of a Redeemer were stirring. God will stop at nothing to spread redemption like a cloak over his fallen world!

    1. Amen!! Jesus was all throughout the Bible, New and Old Testament! It is sad when I see Christians discounting the Old Testament because He is there!! Thank you Michele!!

  4. Job is such an inspirational story on so many levels and I always learn something from his faith. laurensparks.net

  5. Diane, I love this post! Job had such an incredibly strong faith. I never had insight into the kinsman redeemer before except that Boaz was one to Ruth. So I learned something new here. I love how you write also. Blessings sweet sister … ❤❤❤

  6. Our family can easily relate to Job. God allowed us to be stripped too. When you are hungry and homeless, destitute and wandering it can be a bit tough from time to time. In those moments of extreme duress, especially when our lives were threatened, we would sing Jesus Loves Me and say the Lord’s prayer. It was simple worship but it was enough. We held on in faith because God is our only deliverer and worthy of our praise. The fact that I am even commenting here today is a testament to HIs mighty power to deliver.

  7. The story of Job has always amazed me. When I was going through a really tough spiritual battle, I found peace in reading Job and knowing that God allowed it all to happen but He also set the boundaries on Satan as well. It was encouraging to know that Satan could only do what God allowed Him to do. He was on God’s leash per se. Thanks so much for sharing, and I hope you are doing better.

    1. Yes!! That is so important too! God put limits on Satan and that just shows the level of control God has over everything!
