Five Things To Know About Job

1. He repented.

Therefore I loathe [my words] and abhor myself and repent in dust and ashes. (Job 42:6 AMP)

2. He prayed.

So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did as the Lord commanded them; and the Lord accepted [Job's prayer]. (Job 42:9 AMP)

3. He was restored.

And the Lord turned the captivity of Job and restored his fortunes, when he prayed for his friends; also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. (Job 42:10 AMP)

4. He was blessed.

And the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 yoke of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys. (Job 42:12)

5. He lived a long life.

So Job died, an old man and full of days. (Job 42:17)

Go ahead, compare yourself to Job.
