Bible Verse:
“You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.” (James 5:11)
Great patience.
Origin and Application:
Job was a character in the Old Testament reputable for his patience and perseverance. Job was a God-fearing, upright man who was wealthy and considered the greatest man among the people of the East. Satan was not convinced of his piety to God, so Satan kept testing Job’s faith by attacking all his property and his children. Job stood firm in his faith without sinning. In a second testing, Satan afflicted Job with painful sores. Still, Job did not sin despite this extreme suffering. Job's unwavering faith and perseverance are illustrated in these famous lines he said to the Lord while he suffered greatly, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I shall depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.” (Job 1: 21) Job's patience and faith were rewarded immensely. The Lord made him prosperous again and doubled his wealth. His latter part of life was more blessed than the first with thousands of sheep, camels, oxen and donkeys. He lived a long life of one hundred and forty years.
You need the patience of Job in order to finish this task.
