The Lord blessed Job, and Job blessed everyone around him. The end of the book of Job is as important as the beginning. As strange as it may seem to us, one of the Lord’s blessings to Job was that he was chosen to show Satan that God is worthy of worship no matter what happens in our lives. And the greatest blessing of all for Job was experiencing an intimate life-changing encounter with the Lord. While the book of Job deals with suffering, it isn’t about answering the question “why do people suffer?” It’s about acknowledging that God is God. It’s about humbly submitting to Him as the Holy One who is infinite in wisdom, power, justice and goodness.
Job did submit… and it’s worth celebrating! (There’s a party in the middle of the video!)
