Precious Gems Found in the Book of Job

Standard

The Book of Job is not just about patience, faith and suffering of Job. The book is about the God of Job that despite what he allows to happen to Job, God is still in control. He is wise in all the decisions. He is still sovereign and no one can forfeit His plan to Job. In the end, Job has a happt ending and God gets the glory. I have been in my third time reading this book as part of my quite time. Nuggets of gold can be unearthed everytime I read and reread this book. So let me share some verses I find beneficial and soon will be part of my sermon:
