MY REDEEMER LIVETH, I KNOW – Tue, Oct 30, 2018

Job 19:25-27 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:

[27] Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

The posture of man in desperate and frustrating times is usually that of despair and helplessness.

Sometimes I wish I could go back into time, like that SuperBook animation series, and have an encounter with some of the bible’s characters. I’d have loved to know indeed how long Job suffered. Was all this in a year, two years, five years or ten years?

It’s amazing to know how some people are able to find strength even in very desperate and frustrating situations. How is Job still able to say “I know my Redeemer liveth” even at a time like this? Did it not matter to him how long he had suffered?

Though hard, we need to assume the posture of Job in the face of prolonged or exacerbated pain and anguish. We could still make God proud by saying, “I know my Redeemed liveth.” May His Word be true in your life today, Amen.

Have a blessed.
