ELASTICITY CHECK – Tue, Apr 28, 2015

Job 19:25-26 KJV
For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth.

[26] And though after my skin worms destroy this body , yet in my flesh shall I see God:

Where did Job derive strength from to make such a pronouncement?

After all he was going through; i.e. total loss of family, health failure, jabs from close pals, etc, he still mustered courage to speak such words. He still believed in the height of all the agony that God will come to his aid.

My troubles may not be anywhere near that of Job. Honestly, I pray I never get pushed to that extent. But should it happen, would I be able to still stand by the Lord?

What is limit of my elasticity? How long can I really hold on out there? How much anguish can I contain without getting broken in my resolve to abide in Him?
These are questions I need to be able to answer, and I believe you too need same.

Have a blessed day.
