My Bible Lesson for this week focuses on the attributes of God. Scripture references in the book of Job point to God’s omniscience and omnipotence. This book reveals some deep truths.
The book of Job gives clues to the scientific nature of our world. It also shows a relationship between God and man.
After Job loses his children, his home, his cattle and his health, he lays his situation before God. As he suffers, he poses questions to God. AND God answers him.
In the last chapter of the book Job acknowledges God’s omnipotence and sovereignty. God honors Job in his struggle for answers. God admonishes the friends who were misguided in their assessment, and He gives Job the opportunity to pray for them.
. . . and the Lord accepted Job’s prayer. Job 42:9
When we are going through difficulties we can tell God our struggle. When my son was battling cancer I stood in the shower crying out to God, telling him my anguish. I developed a deeper prayer life.
God did not answer my requests in the way that I expected, but he answered and my faith grew.
Whatever struggle you may have, you can bring it to the Lord in prayer. He accepts us where we are. God desires us to grow in faith.
