Job 10 Bible Study
1. Be patient in facing affliction
Job lost his patient and started to think God is his enemy. Job now hate God because he felt he is the one responsible for all the problems he is having. When you are in a difficult situation, you may get angry with God and want to give up because you feel that God has not been helping you. The enemy, Satan, always, attack our weaknesses. Satan can use all sorts of ways to make us leave God because his ultimate goal is to increase the people going to hell. Therefore, when problem happen, you should trust in God and be patient and not give up. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world (John 16:33). In Psalm 9:10, and they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. In Romans 5:3-5, and not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
