MENTORING CORNER/STUDY GUIDE for “LESSONS TO LEARN FROM JOB,” 09.11.18
- How do you reconcile the discrepancy between the fact that Job was righteous, blameless, in God’s eyes, yet he was subjected to such harsh treatment?
- In what ways do you find yourself standing in judgment of Yahweh’s actions?
- If you have you been taught that “God doesn’t work that way,” (i.e. orchestrating bad things to happen to good people), then you need to study God’s Word and see that there are many instances throughout Scripture where God not only allows, but causes bad things to happen in order to test faith, obedience, and loyalty to Him. And this principle is not exclusive to Biblical characters; it applies to any/all of us.
- What was the most important single thing you learned from this Study?
- What did you learn from this Study about how Satan works?
- What is it that accounts for Job’s ability to come through this and not give up on God?
- How do you see yourself responding in such a situation? Will you be able to be like Job, and say, as he says in Job 13:15, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him”?
- If you have had a Job-like experience, what was your response like?
- Assess your own degree of surrender and determine what areas you need to improve in your walk of surrender so that you could be prepared for a Job-like test.
