    The book of Job is a messy book because it deals with messy realities and messy relationships. In one sense, Job’s friends are right in that God is just and that sinful people do not flourish in the long run. They are wrong, however, to say that the reverse is necessarily true, for disheartening circumstances aren’t always caused by sin; sometimes they are simply the designs of God, for He is our sovereign Maker and Sustainer, and He may do as He pleases. Job is an emotional wreck, and says some things he probably wouldn’t say if were at peace, but he still holds onto what he knows about the Lord and clings to that truth as he navigates hardship.
