There may be no more needed book for our day than The Book of Job. The message of the book is both timeless and timely. The enduring problem of suffering vexes God’s people in every generation, and The Book of Job brings hope and encouragement to the hurting. But it is also timely, for in our day there is so much fear in The Enemy, so much teaching that it is God’s purpose always to make us happy, that we urgently need to be recalled to the messages of this book. The book teaches that God has not lost control over Satan but that He holds him firmly in check and that God is looking for people who will trust Him whatever the cost, and for people who love Him more than they love His blessings.
