The Book of Job is a book many people turn to in times of suffering. It is a great lesson from God about trusting Him, even when we don’t understand our circumstances. Job teaches us that God does not need our understanding and He does not owe us any explanation for His actions. We learn to put our trust in God and allow Him to work in our lives, regardless of our understanding of our circumstances.
A little background… Job was a righteous man. He had a wife, many sons and daughters, servants, and large herds of livestock. God had blessed him with much because of his faithfulness and righteousness. To prove to Satan that a righteous man would still be faithful in any circumstance, God allowed Satan to test Job. During this test, Job loses everything and becomes very ill with boils and sores; he is about as low as man can get on this earth.
In all this Job did not sin nor charge God with wrong.
