One of our church members asked advice at our evening gathering about reading the book of Job.
My advice would be to read it in as few sittings as possible. There's an introduction (chapters 1-2), 3 rounds of conversation which you can read in 1 or 3 settings (3-31), Elihu's response (32-37), God's response (38-42), then the conclusion (42).
So read it in one sitting, three sittings, or in 6 sittings.
Main goal: When overwhelmed by disorder trust God's wisdom beyond your current understanding so that you endure for the reward.
Trust God when overwhelmed by . . .
1. by blessing God (1-2)
2. by lamenting to God (3)
3. by knowing that you don't know (4-31)
4. by holding/running to integrity (4-31)
5. by listening to godly counsel (32-37)
6. by humbling yourself before God's greatness and plan (38-42)
You can listen to the sermon here.
I pray this helps those who consider these words and meditates on God’s words to us in the book of Job.
