Just Let God be God

“Just Let God be God”

Job 42:12 says, “So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning…”

Job ends on a good note. He lived the rest of his years in blessing. He died fully of years, not in misery as he had begged God on previous pages. 

How did Job go from blessings to begging to die, to more blessings?

  1. Suffering’s
      • The man (Job 1:1, 3) 
      • The
      • The suffering
  2. Suffering’s Struggle 
    • As we approached suffering’s struggle, we find Job feeling as if he in the cross hairs of the Almighty, feeling that God has put a target on Him and has released the arrows of wrath upon him (Job 16:12-13)
      • The (Job 2:13)
      • The questioning 
        • The questioning came from a spiritual battle of rectifying God’s justice and goodness with man’s struggle.
        • There is no question that the suffering Job felt was spiritual warfare. 
          1. God’s words said to Satan, “Job holds his integrity, although you have moved me against him, to destroy him without cause” (Job 2:3)
          2. Job’s wife’s words of “curse God and die.” It is obvious what she thought about God (Job 2:9). 
      • The (Job 23:3-4)
  3. Suffering’s
      • God speaks 
        • God is not entering the debate. God does not debate, He . And what He says is not up for debate.
      • Job
      • The
        • Suffering exists by sin (Romans 5:12, Romans 8:22)
        • Scripture’s theme is (Romans 5:17) 
        • Christ suffers us and us to bring us to restoration (Job 23:10, James 1:2-3, 12; I Peter 1:7, 2 Corinthians 12:9-10, Isaiah 53:5, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Romans 5:8)

Job teaches us that in a sin-cursed fallen world, the God who loves us remains in . And though at times it seems like He has fallen asleep at the wheel, His perspective is an effort to restore back to Himself.
