Job 19:But I know that my Redeemer lives,
I love this verse.
Despite his horrible circumstances,
despite his less than helpful friends,
despite his pain,
despite his wife who wanted him to curse God and die,
despite the bad theology being dispersed by his friends,
despite his despair,
despite not even having a hint of an answer to his desperate "WHY GOD?"
Job trusted in God's faithfulness,
he trusted in God's promise of redemption, even though he didn't fully understand it,
he trusted in the resurrection,
he trusted that he would be in the presence of God one day
he loved God
When life gets hard (and we know that it will!), I want to have that hope, that trust.
