But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and he will stand upon the earth at last. And after my body has decayed, yet in my body I will see God! I will see him for myself. Yes, I will see him with my own eyes. I am overwhelmed at the thought!Job 19:25-27
Jesus Christ, the Redeemer
Job knew that His redeemer was alive. He was confident that if anything happened to him in this life, he would wake up and see Jesus in the next. Job had everything against him, lived through tragedy, and came out stronger on the other side, all because He knew God. He had hope knowing that if he died he would see Jesus himself. The thought overwhelmed him.
Job lost his family, his livelihood, and even his health. However, because of his faith, God blessed him tenfold. What about you? Do you have the kind of faith that Job had? Have you been through a tragedy in this life? Did it make you stronger or destroy your faith? Our faith should be built on our relationships with Jesus. If it is built on anything else, it will crumble in the face of danger. If the hope of Christ is our foundation, then our faith will stand strong like Job’s did. Pray today and ask God to strengthen your faith.
A Prayer to Remember
You are the hope of my salvation. In you I place my trust and my hope knowing that my faith shall stand when faced with danger. Amen
