Hope Springs Eternal

"I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand
upon the earth. And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God" - (Job 19:25-26, NIV). 

We can endure many trials in life as long as we have hope. Without
hope, however, many people in seemingly hopeless situations give up and die before their time. Far too many end up taking their life.

If anyone ever had a reason to feel hopeless it was Job. He lost his
wealth, his health, and his children. His body, covered with boils,
was racked with pain. His life had become a living nightmare. His
friends said it was because of his sins and failures. He was so
destitute his wife suggested he curse God and die.

Job had no idea that God was allowing Satan to test him. But through all his tests and attacks, Job never lost his faith in God. In the 
midst of his despair his soul cried out the profound words upon which Handel based his "Messiah."

"I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand
upon the earth. And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God." Job instinctively knew that he was more than a body in that he was a living soul and in the end would see God.

We too, can have this same confidence and hope knowing that no matter what happens to us, by accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and trusting our life to God day by day, we too can have the hope and confidence that we too, like Job, will see God face to face and remain with him forever in heaven.

God's Word promises, "And this is the testimony: God has given us
eternal life, and this life is in his Son [Jesus Christ]. He who has
the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have
life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son
of God so that you may know that you have eternal life."- 1 John 5:11- 13, (NIV). There is no greater hope than this in all of life. Do
make sure this hope is yours.

Prayer: "Our Hope giving Loving Father in Heaven, help me to know you in a personal way, so that I have the assurance that all my sins are forgiven, and that I have the hope of eternal life when, like Job, I will see you face to face. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus loving Name I Pray, Amen." 

Have a Blessed Tuesday and God Bless you all.
