Job struggled to understand why severe trials came upon him. Most of his friends didn’t really understand and only increased his suffering. Job eventually understood that he must judge himself and that God must be justified. He learned that God allows suffering according to His sovereign and righteous will in order to perfect faith. If we too lost all evidence of the blessings of God, would we remain faithful today and serve Him with our lives? Those who patiently persevere with God will truly be comforted and rewarded.
