Job 19:25-27

 
For I know that my Redeemer lives, And He shall stand at last on the earth; And after my skin is destroyed, this I know, That in my flesh I shall see God, Whom I shall see for myself, And my eyes shall behold, and not another. How my heart yearns within me!
Job 19:25-27

This statement of faith did not come from Job in a time of peace and prosperity but punctures through his extreme experience of grief and pain. He has gone from the depths of despair to the heights of faith and back into the depths again. This is normal for most; no one can maintain a constant high level of faith and courage in times of severe pain and trial.

But Job expressed confidence that even if he died, he would still have a Redeemer who one day would exercise judgment on the earth. Further, he affirms that he himself expected to live again and see his Redeemer. This was an affirmation of faith in the resurrection of the human body. If you consider how little God had revealed in Job's day about the future life, this becomes a remarkable testimony of faith. Could we say the same?

Let’s walk in that confidence today,

Pastor Gerard Deleeuw
