Job 2 Summary
Satan came before God along with the angels again one day. God asked Satan where has he been. Satan replied that he has been roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it. Then, God asked Satan if he has considered his servant Job. Although Satan had destroyed Job’s household, Job still did not sin. Satan replied Job will surely sin if he is struck with sickness. God approved of Satan’s request and Satan went out of God’s presence. Later, Satan afflicted Job with painful sores all over his body. Job’s wife asked him why didn’t he curse God and die. Job rebuked his wife by saying we must accept both good and bad things from God. Therefore, Job did not sin at all.
Job’s three friends including Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite heard about the troubles Job was involved in. When they saw him from afar, they could hardly recognize him. They weep aloud, tore their robes and sprinkle dust on their heads. After that, they sat on the ground for 7 days and 7 nights. No one say anything because they saw how much sufferings he was in.
Job 2 Bible Study
1. Never blame God on your circumstance
At first, Satan inspired people to destroy Job’s household. Now, Satan himself afflicted Job with painful sores form the head to the toe. Even though Job was afflicted with sores, he did not give Satan an opportunity and curse God. When you face problem, you should not become frustrated and think that it is God who had do this to you. God will never do anything to harm us but Satan can. When problem happens, you should seek for God’s help and ask yourself whether you have sin. Sometimes, God give us problem to turn us back on the right path. God can also put problems in our lives to challenge our faith so that we will learn to depend on him. Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 5:20). In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
