As we finished our study of Job this past Sunday, we saw how the restoration of Job points to a true and better restoration to come. A restoration where Jesus, the true and better Job, will make all things new (Rev. 21:5). Reflecting on our hope this week, my thoughts have continually been drawn to Andrew Peterson’s song, Is He Worthy?. Listen and be encouraged:
As we wait for that final restoration, let us heed James’ counsel and follow Job’s example.
“You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand…Behold, we consider those blessed who remained steadfast. You have heard of the steadfastness of Job, and you have seen the purpose of the Lord, how the Lord is compassionate and merciful.” -James 5:8, 11
