Forgiveness and Fasting Like giving and praying, fasting also must be vertical, directed toward God and not to impress others. As with the other disciplines, God will reward what He sees, the motives of our heart. As giving provides an opportunity for us to measure our commitment to God, fasting gives us an opportunity to measure the degree to which we value the spiritual more than the physical aspects of our lives. It also demonstrates the sincerity of our prayers.

The Rise and Fall of the Kingdom We will learn valuable lessons from Israel's history that will give hope and encourage endurance, especially when encountering spiritual failures. In spite of the nation's idolatry, God was very patient with His people. Every time the work of God ran into an obstacle, God raised up a prophet. Being God's instrument to remove obstacles that blocked the work of God was a chief role or function of the prophets.
Solutions to Stress Psalms with an emotional theme are often prayer psalms, where the psalmist is talking to God about human beings, usually himself. They teach us that when we bring our feelings of anxiety, fear, anger, discouragement, despair, or anything else to God, He helps us through those feelings and leads us into gratitude and worship. When we are experiencing emotional distress, we can always turn to Psalms and find rest, trust, and peace to overcome our stress.
Responding to Life's Trials and Problems The Book of Job shares great insights on how to respond to life's storms. When we first encounter suffering in our Christian life, we usually do not really understand why. As we grow and learn from the Bible, however, we begin to find many reasons why people suffer. Great benefits can come out of the trials we face, especially when we are able to stand firm in our faith through them.
Thirty Biblical Reasons Why People Suffer Why do the righteous suffer? That is a question people have asked for thousands of years. We normally do not ask or even wonder when bad or evil people suffer, but why do good people suffer? Not only does the book of Job address that question, so do many other parts of Scripture. In fact, the issue of suffering comes up in nearly every book in the Bible. The Bible gives many reasons that help us understand why we suffer.
Look In, Look Up, and Look Around Taken from Job's time of suffering, we learn three perspectives of life when we face trials. Our difficulties can lead us to ask the right questions. Suffering can also lead us to listen to God for the right answers. And finally we can let our mourning bring us to a place of believing God's answers to our questions. When we do these three things, we will experience the blessing and comfort of salvation.
The Outward Man and the Inward Man God's Word includes five poetry books, also known as "wisdom books" or "the writings": Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Solomon. In these books, God speaks to the hearts of His people when they are suffering (Job), worshiping (Psalms), coping with the decisions of daily life (Proverbs), doubting (Ecclesiastes), and expressing the intimacies of marriage (Song of Solomon). God's desire is for us to be changed from the inside out.
Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? See God through the life of Esther, the story of a Hebrew woman who married a Gentile and saved the Jewish people from genocide, preserving the ancestry of the Messiah. One of the most important themes of Esther is God's sovereign care over the lives of His people, even when our circumstances are painful or difficult and how He causes all things to work for the good for those called according to His purposes.
The Synoptic Gospels of the Old Testament The first return from the Babylonian captivity was to rebuild the temple under Ezra's leadership. Ezra is a great example of godly leadership and this lesson explains how and why God uses a man like Ezra. The books of Ezra and Nehemiah, along with Esther, are known as the post-captivity history books. Ezra and Nehemiah are very similar books. They both teach principles of leadership and of doing God's work in God's way.
