God's love and justice. God allowed Satan to test Job, to take away his possessions, servants, children, and health. Yet he knew that Job was righteous and that he would remain loyal to him. In the end, he rewarded Job with all the things he had lost and more.

Hi! First of all, let me say that I really like your name, it makes me think of crafting fun :). I like what Job 38 New Intl. Version says in verse 22, where the LORD asks Job,"Have you entered the storehouses of the snow or see the storehouses of the hail, which I reserve for times of trouble, for days of war and battle?" That says only God knows where the snow and hail are stored! And another verse 28, that describes our Lord as "the father of the rain", and He "fathers the dew drop"! Verse 39 He "hunts the prey for the lionesses and satisfies the hunger of the lions.". And He "provides food for the Raven when it's young cries out to God and wander about for lack of food.". I think these verses tell us that Almighty God is the Creator AND Sustainer of even the least little things! Thanks for your interesting question, I'd like to hear your answer too! Bye!
That God is sovereign, something we can rest in and have peace in. And I would say that God is Creator of all. When we realize God is so awesome, that He made everything, including mankind, it gives us a proper perspective on who we are. It makes His love and compassion all the more awesome. It is an honor to know Him and be known by Him.
