"In The Dark Times, Worship the Lord" - Job 1:1-22 - Jason Boothe

Job did not curse God as Satan thought he would. No! Much to the contrary, Job arose in the midst of his own pain and torment, ripped his own clothes, shaved his head, fell on the ground, and worshipped the God of Heaven and Earth. He knew God was completely sovereign over the affairs of men, both the good times as well as the dark times. It was the Lord, after all, “who gave.” And it was the Lord who “takes away.” And no matter the situation, Job cried out, “blessed be the name of the Lord.” As we come to better understand the Sovereignty of God, great peace and security are afforded to us. There is much we can learn from Job concerning worshipping God in the dark times.
