11 principles in the life of Job

1.     Suffering is not always a punishment for sin.

2.     Jesus Christ was the world's most righteous man, and the world's greatest sufferer. Righteous persons do suffer, and not because of some sin they have committed.

3.     Justice is not always expressed in individual lives because the wicked do enjoy prosperity, die in ripe old age, receive honors after death, and the righteous suffer misfortune, and die young in poverty.

4.     Job’s cry for a mediator foreshadows the work of the Messiah as one Mediator between God and man.

5.     In God’s grace and mercy there is the final preservation of the saints.

6.     The suffering of the righteous leads to richer, fuller, more mature faith in God.

7.     Ultimately righteousness triumphs over wickedness. Job defeated Satan.

8.     Suffering should not produce a spirit of rebellion, but a stronger faith in God.

9.     God limits Satan (1:11-12), and he cannot defeat the person who trusts in God.

10. God uses the evil assaults of Satan to bless the faithful servant of God.

11. Suffering should not produce a spirit of rebellion, but an increased faith. "We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose" (Romans 8:28).
