Re:Verse passage – Job 19:20-27 (day four)

What a man of faith!  Even while Job laments his suffering, he says unashamedly, “my redeemer lives.”  Job, in faith, says ‘in the end, God will still stand.’  Job recognizes and knows that God will be there no matter what.  Whether all of his possessions are gone, all of his family and friends are gone, or all of his flesh is gone, God will still care for him.

Paul wrote similar words many years later.  Romans 8:38-39 says, “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, not principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  We have the promise from God of His constant, never-ending love and care for us that can never be taken from us.  Satan would have us believe that God will fail us, but Job understood this to be a lie.  Nothing can separate us from God!
