As For Me

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

As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, And at the last He will take His stand on the earth.” (emphasis mine)

At some point, enough counsel will have been imparted and enough differing opinions and perspectives will have been shared. Then, it will be up to each one of us to determine and declare what we believe, who we believe. The conclusions of our experiences, knowledge, and feelings will result in personal convictions and confession- some sort of worldview. At the end of the day, the deepest question that should be answered is not, “Do I believe in God?”, but rather “Do I believe God?” Do I believe: What he says about Himself, What He says about humans, What He says about salvation, sin, suffering, love, and grace.  The Spirit and scriptures clearly communicate God’s character and promises.

Notice the individual question. Do I.

What is your conclusion?  What is my conclusion?  What is our confession? For each of us, it will matter for eternity.

“For I know whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until that day.” 2 Timothy‬ ‭1:12
