Allen Blair, D. J. (1966). Living Patiently When God Seems Far Away : A Devotional Study of Job. Retrieved from

Job provides a living example of God's matchless care and provision for His saints. Who of us is without trials or hardships of some kind? The circumstances may differ from Job's but the sorrow and anxiety are the same. But more than this, the Lord is the same. As He undertook so overwhelming for Job, we may trust Him to do the same for us. It is for this reason that living patiently is not only a requisite for happiness but a grand privilege for all who know the Lord. Therefore, "Let us run with patience the rate that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith".

A Dr. Blair examines the biblical account of Job, we come face to face with tragic loss, grief, financial ruin, a broken marriage, betrayal by one's closest friends, and perhaps the most cruel of all, the seeming silence of God in response to Job's anguished cry, "Why?". In spite of Job's devastating losses, he never lost his firm trust in the God who is above and beyond all sufferings. For everyone who is tired of glib answers and simple slogans, it's time to discover the inner strength of Living Patiently.

Probably the oldest book in the world is the book of Job, which is believed to have been put into writing by Moses. Though it is not quite certain as to the time when the events of the book transpired, many seem to think that it was during Abraham's day. Doubtless it was no later, for there was no mention of Israel, the Tabernacle, the Temple, the law, or anything that would suggest a later date. The theme of the book seems to be, "The child of God facing trials". The Lord uses Job as an object lesson of suffering for the people of God of every generation. It is for this reason that true believers find Job to be an extremely practical and helpful book, filled with encouragement for the suffering and sorrowful saint.
