Job 1:12 - “All right, you may test him,” the Lord said to Satan. 

Job 1:21 - He said, “I came naked from my mother’s womb, and I will be naked when I leave.  The Lord gave me what I had, and the Lord has taken it away. Praise the name of the Lord!”

Job 21:19 - “I say he should punish the ones who sin, so that they understand his judgment.” 

Job 27:5-6 -" I will never concede that you are right; I will defend my integrity until I die. I will maintain my innocence without wavering. My conscience is clear for as long as I live."

5. God is God 

Elihu son of Barakel - Job chapters 32-37

Job 32:12 - I have listened, but not one of you has refuted Job or answered his arguments.” 

Job 33:12 - “…you are wrong, and I will show you why. For God is greater than any human being.” 

 Job 37:24“- All who are wise show him reverence.”

 Job 40:2 - “Do you still want to argue with the Almighty? You are God’s critic, but do you have the answers?”   

Job 42:1-6 - "Then Job replied to the Lord: “I know that you can do anything, and no one can stop you. You asked,    ‘Who is this that questions my wisdom with such ignorance?’ It is I—and I was talking about things I knew nothing about, things far too wonderful for me. You said, ‘Listen and I will speak! I have some questions for you, and you must answer them.’ I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. I take back everything I said, and I sit in dust and ashes to show my repentance.” 

6.  God is God - and I am not

Proverbs 9:10 - Respect and obey the Lord! This is the beginning of wisdom.  To have understanding, you must know the Holy God.
