October 5th - Lesson 5 - Yet Will I Rejoice
Devotional Reading: Psalm 56:8-13
Background Scripture: Job 1; Psalm 56; Habakkuk 1-3
Printed Text: Habakkuk 2:1-5; 3:17-19
Key Verse: I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. - Habakkuk 3:18
Central Thought: What strength do we have against the storms of this life, whether of financial ruin, natural disasters overpowing enemies, or pending death? God triumphs over them, and He extends that victory to those who call on Him.
Thought to Remember: Patiently rely on God’s strength.
October 12th - Lesson 6- I Know That My Redeemer Liveth
Devotional Reading: 1 Chronicles 16:28-34
Background Scripture: Job 19; Psalm 57
Printed Text: Jeremiah Job 19:1-7, 23-29
Key Verse: I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth. - Job 19:25
Central Thought: Job reached for hope when there seemed to be no hope. If Job could find faith in his situation, how much more should Christians treasure Christ’s redemption and our clear hope for eternal life.
Thought to Remember: Hold on to hope. Hold on to Jesus.
October 19th - Lesson 7 - I Will Call On God
Devotional Reading: Jeremiah 14:14-22
Background Scripture: Job 5,24; Psalm 55:12-23
Printed Text: Job 24:1, 9-12, 19-25
Key Verse: As for me, I will call upon God; and the Lord shall save me. - Psalm 55:16
Central Thought: God is good, God is all-powerful, and evil exists. While it is difficult to reconcile these three facts, we can see in Job an example of trust in God in the face of unanswered questions.
Thought to Remember: Cling to God’s justice.
October 26th - Lesson 8 - Things Too Wonderful for Me
Devotional Reading: Galatians 1:11-19
Background Scripture: Job 42; Psalm 86
Printed Text: Job 42:1-10
Key Verse: I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee. - Job 42:2
Central Thought: There are two lessons to be learned from the book of Job: (1) we must never think that we fully understand God; and (2) God is just, and He will ultimately restore the fortunes of His people (James 1:12)
Thought to Remember: Speak on God’s behalf - but think first.
