The story about Job is very inspiring. I was inspired by the way Job faced the challenges that life has given him. And it is very touching that even though his life was very tough he never question God for it instead he remain faithful with Him. I was really amazed because even he is suffering he still believes that God is really the answer for everything. I’ve never thought that believing in God or being a Christian will bring me to difficult and horrible situations but surely in these cases it will test our devotion to our God. Calamities happen. It will teach us how to manage those difficulties, and as it go on it gives us strength from what we have learned and from God. We should be thankful for the problems that gives us lessons and keeps us strong. Just keep in our mind that God is always with us that guides us. Just trust Him and everything will be fine. Job is one example of that so called great follower of God. A man who feared God and avoided evil. He was a wealthy, respected man with a beautiful wife and family. His lands had plenty of sheeps and camels but suddenly Satan came to destroy his life just to prove Yahweh that Job is just like the other that faith is limited after a serious tragedy. Job loses his wealth, his daughter died, and also Job loses his health too but still Job continue to pray to Yahweh, asking for guidance and strength and he never blamed God for everything that happens to him. But Satan failed to win his plans. The story ends with God giving Job double his previous wealth, more status, beautiful children and a long life.
