Job 19:25 (NIV) I know that my Redeemer lives!

If Job can do it, so can you. I know that my Redeemer lives!

When you read the Bible there within in the book of Job at chapter 19: 25 (NIV) Job says this life changing statement, I know that my Redeemer lives.”

Job had lost so much in regards to possessions and property not to mention his family, furthermore; he was even afflicted by illnesses, which plagued his body.

His so called friends could not believe that he was not to blame for his shortcomings, even his own wife had lost faith in God, and tried to get Job to blame God for it all.

However, Job still loved God, he still remained true to his, “YHWH-ADONAI The Sovereign God.” He remained true to, “Jehovah T`SIDKENU” God his righteousness”. Despite everything that Job went through; he held on to God with everything he had, for when all you have left is God, you have everything you need to start afresh.

If Job can do it, so can you!

When you come to the end of your rope, hold onto the edge of His garment.

Hold onto the Lord with everything you have, for He is a faithful God who will bring you through the hard times into a place of rich blessing. He will bring you through the pain and the suffering to a place of comfort and healing. He will bring you through the rejection and the heartache into a place of acceptance and heavenly love, so you can confess in faith as your personal testimony to God just like Job, I know that my Redeemer lives.”

If Job can do it, so can you!

Even at one of the most difficult moments in Jobs sufferings, he fell to the ground in worship to God, and said, “The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away, may the name of the Lord be praised.” Then again in Job 13: 15 (NIV) He said, “Though he slay me; yet I will praise Him”. There is power in praise; there is power in lifting your heart to God to worship him.

The singer, songwriter Matt Redman once wrote these words,

Blessed be Your name, on the road marked with suffering, 

Though there’s pain in the offering, blessed be Your name.

Every blessing You pour out, I’ll turn back to praise, 

When the darkness closes in, Lord, still I will say.
Blessed be the name of the Lord, blessed be Your name,

Blessed be the name of the Lord, blessed be Your glorious name.

If Job can do it, so can you!

God turned things around for Job and healed him completely. God blessed him so mightily with twice as much as he had before. The Bible says in Job 42: 12 (NIV) “The Lord blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the first”.

Job had a message to share with the world, which will radically change your life. ‘No matter how difficult the hour, no matter hard or how tough the times maybe, your God is an awesome God, who faithful and true. He is your El-SHADDAI. Your God is more than enough and then some. He is our Jehovah ROPHEDH, “God who heals”. No matter what you may face in life, you can face it will this unwavering confidence and declare in faith just like Job and say, “I know that my Redeemer lives“.

God will always give you the grace and the strength that you will ever need to help you through it all.

My friend, take heart from this encouraging word for today, “If Job can do it, so can you, because you know that your Redeemer lives.”

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
