Job is one of the more interesting books in the Bible. It gives us a glimpse of the heavenly realm that we don’t typically get to see. In these first two chapters we find a servant of the Lord named Job. Job is a man full of integrity, blameless, and upright. He does everything he can to serve the Lord. But, adversity hits him hard because of events that take place in the heavens. How does job respond? Unexpectedly. He doesn’t sin, and he blesses the Lord.
While simply stated, the story of Job shows us that bad things can and do happen to good people. Knowing that, we need to be prepared to respond the right way.
How do you respond when adversity and hard times come your way?
