Dear Friends,

“I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand upon the earth” (Job 19:25).

Job listened to the second speech by Bildad. He then replied to his friends, asking them how long he would be tormented him by their words. He presented a long list of what had happened to him, including being berated by his friends and losing his family and fortune. But after this discourse, he said he still held true to the belief in the Almighty God. Not only did Job believe in God’s existence, but Job believed that he would stand in God’s presence someday.

Regardless of the situations you encounter and the consequences you experience, you should still believe in the sovereignty of God. When you are in the middle of a difficult time and you don’t see an easy way out of your struggle, do you ask where God is instead of trusting Him in faith?

When Christians have questions, they have to cry out to God and, with sheer faith, believe that whatever the outcome He will walk with them and see them through their valley.

Prayer Suggestion: Father, help me remember that You are there, no matter the circumstances.
