Today’s Scripture Reading: Job 19:1-21:34
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
What a declaration!
It sounds like someone standing on the mountain-top of their life
it was Job at the worst time of his life.
How did Job stand firm during the worst days of his life?
- Job personally knew his God. He didn’t rely on his parents, teachers or pastors to know him. He took personal responsibility to know his Heavenly Father.
- Job believed that his God was alive and in charge of the earth
- Job believed he would see God when he died; with his own eyes
- Job was thrilled with the thought of seeing his God.
In the good times of Job’s life he develop a trust in his God. He not only believed in God, he believed in living for God. That belief carried him through life’s hard times.
Would you like to stand for God in the worst of times?
Make a decision today not only give your life to Him, but to give today to Him.
Heavenly Father, I say with Job, “I know that my Redeemer lives!” Jesus, help that belief to guide my day. Lord. Bless our week. Give us wisdom to live for You in our homes, workplaces, and communities. Help us to trust that You are in charge of the earth. Strengthen us to live a life of excellence that causes others to see You through our lives.
