Job’s Worship


Job 1:1-20

If you’ve been in church for any length of time, you’ve probably heard the story of Job, a man who had everything he could ever hope for. Job had a beautiful wife, loving children, health, land and provisions to last a lifetime. But this is just the beginning of his story. When you read Job 1, you see that Job goes from having the best of everything to mourning the loss of it all within minutes.

Though Job’s loss and suffering are devastating, he remains steadfastly devoted to God as his Father and Provider. When Job learns his oxen, sheep, camels, servants and even his children have been lost, his first reaction is to “[fall] to the ground in worship” (Job 1:20). Despite the great losses he endured, and regardless of his feelings of fear, anger and doubt, Job worships the Lord.

How many of us can say we have the same reaction when facing difficult situations in our own lives? It’s amazing how much we can learn from Job’s example. If you’re having money problems, worship the Lord. If you’ve lost someone close to you, worship the Lord. If you’re scared about your future, worship the Lord. Whatever the situation, our reaction should always be to worship our Father in heaven, because we know He will always provide for us in our time of need.
