The Lord restores fortunes! Job 42:10

July 2, 2010

And the Lord restored the fortunes of Job, when he had prayed for his friends. And the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. (ESV)

  • As the fascinating book of Job comes to a conclusion, in a spirit of humility Job earnestly prays for the friends who have in many ways tormented and belittled him for weeks if not months. Key to Job’s restoration was complete acceptance of God’s providence, and intercession for his friends. With this accomplished, Job was restored – and then some!
