1. Rejoice in your sufferings
Job’s problem is that he is sorrowful in his spirit so he seemed pessimistic about everything. When problem happens, you should face it with boldness because God will always stand on your side. You should not be gloomy but put on a smile on your face so that Satan won’t have the victory. In Romans 5:1-5 KJV, therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 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. In James 1:12, blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
