Is God your Redeemer?

Who is God to you

Job 19 As Job sat in dust and ashes and listened to his miserable comforters, he echoed the words of Solomon: “My assailants revile and conspire against me all day long.” [Lam 3:62] Yet, in all this, God’s words ring forth; Job is “a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and turns away from evil.” God knew Job could be trusted to face adversity. “In all this Job did not sin, nor did he charge God with moral impropriety.” [Job 1:22]

Job not only knew but truly believed this truth: that no matter what is going on or what will transpire in the future, he can trust that his “Redeemer lives, and that as the last he will stand upon the earth.”

How about us in the midst of severe suffering? Do we cling to that truth? Is God our redeemer? Are we able to say as Paul: “I have learned to be content in any circumstance.” [Phil 4:11]
