Job has a big family, lots of property, 7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 500 oxen, and 500 donkeys. He's one of the most righteous men out there. God is worried about how awesome Job is, so he brags to Satan. Satan doesn't agree, he says that Job is only so righteous because his life is so good. God agrees to let Satan destroy Job's life. Satan destroys Job's life by taking away all of Job's animals, killing the servants that were with the animals, and killing all of Job's sons and daughters while they were eating together. Job remains loyal to God, understanding that God gives and God takes away. God gets back to Satan telling him about Job. This time, God gives Satan permission to hurt Job physically, something he wouldn't let him do last time. Just don't kill him, God says. Satan afflicted sores all over Job's body. Job's wife suggests that he curse God and die. But Job refuses to be disloyal.

There will always be a point where God takes away something that you really love and enjoy. This could be a job, a position, a relationship, a dream or even a long time friendship. Just the thought of this can be scary, but there is no way around it. Regardless of how much you love God, things you don’t like will happen. And when loss occurs, it is very easy to become confused and sad.Last year, i lost friendship with my bestfriend, we thought that we would stay friends forever. God reaveled to us that he wanted our friendship to end. I had never experienced being so attached to something and then having it suddenly removed from my life. It was devastating, however i didn't hate or blame god for taking away my bestfriend, I remained loyal to God. Later God revealed to me how bad that person was. I now realize that God was working in every single detail. Perhaps the greatest lesson we learn from the book of Job is that God does not have to answer to anyone for what He does or does not do. Job’s experience teaches us that we may never know the specific reason for suffering, but we must trust in our God. Our responsibility to God is to obey Him, to trust Him, and to submit to His will, whether we understand it or not.
