After men have had their say, God must have the final word. Chapters 38 – 42 contain God’s conversation with Job as an individual. God must have the final say. Our thoughts and ideas must be subservient to the thinking of the Almighty. We need an ear for His voice. When God speaks our sins are uncovered and our wrongs are put to right.
Every Christian will identify with the roller coaster of emotion that Job was hurtling along, even though our experience may not be as severe. There are the lows and the highs.

A view of eternity is the great hope for the child of God. Our Heavenly Father has His own precious ways of giving us renewed hope in hours of earthly trial. He is truthfully the God of all grace.
