The space between our limited human knowledge and God’s infinite wisdom leaves room for faith, which God highly values (Hebrews 11:6) and His servant, Job, learned the hard way. 


If Job knew that he would be twice blessed after he endured many trials and that he would live for another one hundred and forty years, he would not have learned to trust God during the hard times (42:10-17). So, the big idea we learn from Job is also the big conclusion to his story: Suffering requires humility and the patience of faith (42:1-6). 


Have you heard of the patience of Job? (James 5:10-11). If you lack both humility and patience during suffering, consider Job. Better yet, look to Jesus on the cross. Our Savior fully understands the patience of suffering.
