Job 42

Job was humbled when he came to understand the magnitude of God.
God accepted Job's confession and restored him.

1.   We Confess and Repent When We Realize We Were Wrong

     (Job 42:1-6)

     Job revealed what he learned in his confession.
2.  We Make Things Right With Those We Hurt and Forgive Those
     Who Hurt Us

     (Job 42:7-9)

     God expressed His anger toward Job's three friends because
     they misrepresented Him, yet He offered a path to forgiveness.
3.  God Restores When We Repent

     (Job 42:10-17)

     As Job humbled himself, God accepted his contrition and
     restored him.

Job 38-39

God used questions to help Job better understand His greatness.

1.   We Can Do Nothing Compared to God's Unlimited Power

     (Job 38:4-21)

     God illuminated Job about His creative power in His first series
     of questions.
2.  We Know Very Little Compared to God's Complete Knowledge

     (Job 38:22-38)

     The next series of questions enlightened Job about how little 
     he knew, and about God's unlimited knowledge.
3.  We Are Extremely Limited Compared to God's Boundless
     Presence and Design

     (Job 38:39  -  39:30)

     God's series of questions show He is present and involved in
     the animals of His creation.

Job 19:1-27

Job did not understand why such terrible things happened to him, yet
he continued in his faith that God would redeem him and one day he
would see God.

1.   Sometimes It Can Feel Like Everything, Including God, Is
      Against Us

     (Job 19:1-20)

     Job felt that his friends had attacked him with their words and that
     God had focused His anger against him.
2.  Reach Out to People But Realize Their Limitations

     (Job 19:21-22)

     Job reached out to his friends for pity, but they were better at 
     making things worse than they were at making things better.
3.  Do Not Abandon Your Confidence in God

     (Job 19:23-27)

     Despite all that had happened, Job never relinquished his faith
     in God.

Fusion: week of 5/8


Job 13:1-28

Job's friends falsely accused him of sin as the cause for his suffering.
Job refused to give in to their lies.

1.   Worldly Wisdom Can Seem Logical, But Still Be False

     (Job 13:1-8)

     Job's friends insisted that his suffering was because God was
     punishing him for some wickedness he had committed.
2.  Worldly Wisdom Does Not Pass the Test

     (Job 13:9-12)

     Job tested the wisdom of his friends' arguments, and they
     failed the test.
3.  Seek God's Truth and Wisdom When Confronted With Worldly Wisdom

     (Job 13:13-28)

     Job did not correctly understand why he was suffering, but he
     understood that God could do whatever He wanted.

Fusion: week of 5/1


Job 1:1  -  2:3

Heartache, difficulties, and tragedy interrupted Job's life. He grieved, 
but stayed faithful to God.

1.  Trusting and Obeying God Builds a Foundation That Will Stand When
     Life Falls Apart

     (Job 1:1-5)

     A lifestyle of faith and godliness helps believers overcome the 
     temptation to turn away from God when facing loss and suffering.
2.  Life's Difficulties Can Be the Result of Spiritual Warfare

     (Job 1:6-19)

     Though not on the same level as God (and subject to Him),
     Satan interacts with God over the lifestyles of believers and
     intends to turn us against Him.
3.  Our Reaction to Life's Difficulties Shows the Strength of Our Faith

     (Job 1:20  -  2:3)

     When we withstand Satan's temptations, we bring glory to God.
