Psalm 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: 

try me, and know my thoughts:


24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, 

and lead me in the way everlasting.



James 5:11 Behold, we count them happy which endure. 

Ye have heard of the patience of Job, 

and have seen the end of the Lord; 

that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.



Ezekiel 14:14 Though these three men, 

Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, 

they should deliver 

but their own souls by their righteousness, 

saith the Lord GOD.





Job 1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, 

whose name was Job; 

and that man was perfect and upright, 

and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.


     2 great qualities - --  make a great study


2 And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters.


3 His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, 

and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; 

so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east.


Job prayed for His kids “just in case’


6 Now there was a day when the sons of God 

came to present themselves before the LORD, 

and Satan came also among them.


7 And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? 

Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, 

From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.



8 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, 

that there is none like him in the earth, 

a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?


God wss able to brag to Satan 


9 Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?


10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, 

and about all that he hath on every side? 

thou hast blessed the work of his hands, 

and his substance is increased in the land.


11 But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, 

and he will curse thee to thy face.


     1 Pet 5:8 . . . . Satans desired end to ever child of God 

            (that they will get mad at God)

12 And the LORD said unto Satan, 

Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; 

only upon himself put not forth thine hand. 

So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.


     Satan has to get a “go ahead” from God (when it come to God’s children)


Servents gone

Live stock gone

Kids gone



20 Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, 

and shaved his head, 

and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped,


21 And said, 

Naked came I out of my mother's womb, 

and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, 

and the LORD hath taken away;

blessed be the name of the LORD.


22 In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.


     As far as the accusations of sin from Jobs Friends . .. 

     :22 says He did not . . .. . so stick with what God say



Lessons we can observe from job


1) He worshipped instead of whimper and whine


1 Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, 

that he may exalt you in due time:


2)  You will leave this world with the same amount of physical stuff you came into this world with…..


Job knew the principle God gave at the beginning

Genesis 3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.


1 Timothy 6:7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.


3)  What Job did have (which was more than anyone else) came from God

James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.



4)  God, don’t ever stop being God .. always good (:22 don’t charge God)

Romans 9:20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?
