Job 19:25

25  For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

Job had practically everything taken from him, oxen, donkeys, camels, more importantly children, his status position, his wife (she didn't die but still), his friends. Job even said it would have been better if he had not been born, yet in the middle of all this I think he realizes that he hasn't lost his greatest treasure. his most prized possession was not lost in all this, in fact his greatest possession allowed all this to happen to him. In verse twenty-five he says that his redeemer liveth, even though all else failed him, even though God was allowing him to be persecuted (vs. 22) he still trusted that God was who he says he is. 

Job went through a lot, and yet even in the middle of the fire comes forth beautiful words. "I know that my redeemer liveth". My prayer is that when the storms of tribulation and trial come I will be like Job and even more so that I would glory in the fact that God is God! One questions plagues my mind.. is my most prized possession above all else Jesus Christ?

On my heart very much so at this moment is the Howeth family. Ethan Howeth came out of surgery several hours ago and from the last word I heard was doing well. However please continue in prayer for him, God has definitely performed a miracle in healing him this far however he needs prayer now more than ever. Also please continue to pray that all the financial needs will be met, God is more than able to provide!

Fight the good fight of faith,
