God is The Source
Job 28:28 (KJB) And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
Job clearly understood that God is the source of all things.
God is the continual flowing spout of spiritual wisdom and understanding. Job could speak of this through a personal understanding. He faced many trials and troubles. Job not only understood “having it all”, he understood losing everything. Job lost his family, his health, and all things he had accumulated.
Job speaks from his own personal experience about fearing the Lord and obtaining God’s spiritual wisdom and understanding. Job certainly had the peace and sufficiency of God at work in his life amid many disturbing and delicate trials and tribulations which fell heavily upon him but did not crush him.
Job could personally speak of the goodness of God and the many benefits of separating from that which was evil. Job’s life was filled with trials and trouble along with great spiritual understanding and peace of God.
