This week on“Encounter God’s Truth,” we will learn how the Old Testament saint Job continued to give thanks and praise to God even though he had lost his children and his earthly possessions and was facing a serious decline in health. Dr. John Whitcomb is teaching a special series for the Thanksgiving season. It comes from the book of Job and is entitled, “Thankful—In Spite of Trouble.” This week we learn to be “Thankful—For What God Allows.” Our teacher then receives a question from host Wayne Shepherd about whether Job was forced to leave his home because of his skin disease, and if he was compelled to live like a leper. God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! May it guide us, following the example of Job, to give thanks even when our circumstances seem to oppose us.
