Job 19

Then Job answered and said,

How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words?

These ten times have ye reproached me: ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me.

And be it indeed that I have erred, mine error remaineth with myself.

If indeed ye will magnify yourselves against me, and plead against me my reproach:

Know now that God hath overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net.

Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but there is no judgment.

He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths.

He hath stripped me of my glory, and taken the crown from my head.

10 He hath destroyed me on every side, and I am gone: and mine hope hath he removed like a tree.

11 He hath also kindled his wrath against me, and he counteth me unto him as one of his enemies.

12 His troops come together, and raise up their way against me, and encamp round about my tabernacle.

13 He hath put my brethren far from me, and mine acquaintance are verily estranged from me.

14 My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me.

15 They that dwell in mine house, and my maids, count me for a stranger: I am an alien in their sight.

16 I called my servant, and he gave me no answer; I intreated him with my mouth.

17 My breath is strange to my wife, though I intreated for the children’s sake of mine own body.

18 Yea, young children despised me; I arose, and they spake against me.

19 All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loved are turned against me.

20 My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.

21 Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends; for the hand of God hath touched me.

22 Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh?

23 Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book!

24 That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever!

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

26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:

27 Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

28 But ye should say, Why persecute we him, seeing the root of the matter is found in me?

29 Be ye afraid of the sword: for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword, that ye may know there is a judgment.

  1. Verses 23-27 MSG “If only my words were written in a book—better yet, chiseled in stone! Still, I know that God lives—the One who gives me back my life—and eventually he’ll take his stand on earth. And I’ll see him—even though I get skinned alive!—see God myself, with my very own eyes. Oh, how I long for that day!” Through it all, Job has not lost his focus of the One who holds everything, his very life, ……Jesus.

    Romans 5:3-5 AMP says “And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance; and endurance, proven character (spiritual maturity); and proven character, hope and confident assurance [of eternal salvation]. Such hope [in God’s promises] never disappoints us, because God’s love has been abundantly poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.”

  2. 6 Know now that God hath overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net.
    7 Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but there is no judgment.

    Your perception in a situation matters. Is going to determine if you’re the victim or if you are the victor. Job started to see everything as the victim that no matter what he did things are coming against him and God was not there for him. Situation is almost irrelevant compared to now you’re looking at the situation. Storms are going to happenbecause they are inevitable but what matters more is going into storm knowing there’s a lesson to learn from it and then at the end of the day God is still supreme and on the throne just as Job begin to realize

    25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
    26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:

  3. Job 19
    25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

    My hope in this that I do know My Redeemer Lives
    Everyday life brings pain and unanswered questions.
    Rejection ridicules lies and challenges yet RIGHT IN THE MUDDLE THERE IS ONE THAT BRINGS BREATH LIFE FOR HE LIVES . He speaks to the pain , the unanswered questions, the challenges ridicules lies and challenges and Says I AM The Creator I AM THe Breath you breathe. I do know my Reedemer Lives !

    My Reedemer Lives
    Who taught the sun where to stand in the morning?
    Who told the ocean you can only come this far?
    Who showed the moon where to hide ’til evening?
    Whose words alone can catch a falling star?
    Well I know my Redeemer lives
    I know my Redeemer lives
    All of creation testify
    This life within me cries
    I know my Redeemer lives
    The very same God that spins things in orbit
    He runs to the weary, the worn and the weak
    And the same gentle hands that hold me when I’m broken
    They conquered death to bring me victory
    Now I know my Redeemer lives
    I know my Redeemer lives
    Let all creation testify
    Let this life within me cry
    I know my Redeemer, He lives
    To take away my shame
    And He lives forever, I’ll proclaim
    That the payment for my sin
    Was the precious life He gave
    But now He’s alive and
    There’s an empty grave

  4. ““How long will you torture me? How long will you try to crush me with your words? You have already insulted me ten times. You should be ashamed of treating me so badly. Even if I have sinned, that is my concern, not yours. You think you’re better than I am, using my humiliation as evidence of my sin.”
    ‭‭Job‬ ‭19:2-5‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Some people will tear you down and mock and ridicule you because of their assumption of what you did or what you are doing that they think you are sinning. Others are quick to talk about you or tell you what you should be doing when their own house is a mess. Mind your business! Worry about yourself! If it’s bothering you that much pray for that person, don’t go get in their business. Worry about what’s between you and God! Don’t focus on anyone else and don’t think you’re better than anyone else because you have your own skeletons to deal with. That judgement you pass on someone else will be passed on you for trying to be the judge.

  5. “And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.”
    ‭‭Job‬ ‭19:26-27‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    LOOK UP! LOOK UP!

    Sometimes we have to look further than our current situation and remember what it’s all about. Like when someone wants to give up they can always think of the where they came from and what God has delivered them from. They can always look up and see that Gods still there and he’s not going anywhere else. No matter what the problem is or how close to death you are the ultimate reward is dwelling in His presence for eternity. There’s not a single thing in this world that compares to it. That might be why it’s difficult for people to react or respond so excitingly when we tel them the reward in heaven. They don’t have anything to compare it to or maybe they haven’t thought it all the way through. All I can say is what a blessing it will be. What a blessing it has been to serve the Lord and what a reward it shall be to do it for eternity.
    Look up everybody Jesus is still there and loves you,
    Because you’re awesome.

  6. For I know that my Redeemer and Vindicator lives, And at the last He will take His stand upon the earth. Even after my [mortal] skin is destroyed [by death], Yet from my [immortal] flesh I will see God, Whom I, even I, will see for myself, And my eyes will see Him and not another! My heart faints within me. If you say, ‘How shall we [continue to] persecute him?’ And ‘What pretext for a case against him can we find [since we claim the root of these afflictions is found in him]?’ Then beware and be afraid of the sword [of divine vengeance] for yourselves, For wrathful are the punishments of that sword, So that you may know there is judgment.”
    JOB 19:25‭-‬29 AMP

    YES, There you are Job, there is the upright man that and Loves God, that resist evil, you are finally coming to the point that you know that God is our redeemer, God is so great and merciful and wonderful, it’s easy to get cought up in our situation, and woe is me, but when we realize where we are opposed to where we were, we can know that just a shout to the Lord, a little praise dont go as far as we might think, sometimes it takes all that we got, every ounce of energy, to get through a storm, I love you Jesus, thank you for all that you are in my family!

  7. Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but there is no judgment. He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths. He hath stripped me of my glory, and taken the crown from my head.
    Job 19:7‭-‬9 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/job.19.7-9.KJV

    Job’s so called friends have given him answers, but they are not the answers that he was looking for. They have rebuked him and said to him give up the ghost. In all this Job has still praised God and given God the glory. Even though I have been stripped of certain things; this is where I should be. People may mock, point, and laugh: but I need to give God all the glory. No matter what I’m going through; there should never come a time when I don’t praise the glory of God. He will try me and put me in a storm, but it is to see how will I handle it. Will I run, try to hide, or will I face this giant as David did with Goliath. There has only been one that has stood against my past situation and I thank him for that. He has actually helped me to find a better place to be at. How do I overcome all this; by staying in the word, going to church, and continuing to grow as a Christian. There is power in His name and I need to not take it for granted.

    For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me. Be ye afraid of the sword: for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword, that ye may know there is a judgment.
    Job 19:25‭, ‬27‭-‬27‭, ‬29 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/job.19.25-29.KJV

    God knows what to do and when to do it. He lives within me and leads me. The day is coming when I will stand before Him. Where will I be after that. I know that there is work to be done; Lord be my guide and let me always trust in you.

  8. 11. He has also kindled His wrath against me, And He counts me as one of His enemies.

    26. And after my skin is destroyed, this I know, That in my flesh I shall see God,

    27. Whom I shall see for myself, And my eyes shall behold, and not another. How my heart yearns within me! NKJV

    Job didn’t let his thinking that God had turned against him diminish his joy in seeing God.
    We can’t let what we’re going through steal our faith or our joy.

  9. “But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and he will stand upon the earth at last. And after my body has decayed, yet in my body I will see God! I will see him for myself. Yes, I will see him with my own eyes. I am overwhelmed at the thought!
    Job 19:25‭-‬27 NLT

    What great joy and peace it is to know we will one day look upon His face? Despite the pressure sand negativity around us, remember God alone is the one we have to please. In the end, it doesn’t matter what others think or say, we ought to please God rather than men!

  10. “But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and he will stand upon the earth at last. And after my body has decayed, yet in my body I will see God! I will see him for myself. Yes, I will see him with my own eyes. I am overwhelmed at the thought!
    Job 19:25‭-‬27 NLT
    https://bible.com/bible/116/job.19.25-27.NLT

    Redeemer is one that will avenge for things done wrong. Boaz was Ruth’s kinsman’s Redeemer and redeemed her life. For us Jesus Christ is that Redeemer. I am just blown away that Job (who was innocent and used as an example[much like when God robed Himself in flesh as Jesus Christ on earth]) was in a state of such devastation and he continuously cried out for a mediator, a redeemer, a Savior. Even in the old testament they needed Jesus Christ to set them free. Job is the embodiment of a soul dredged and plagued with sin, from the depths of his bowel he cries out for a Redeemer. How far will our sin take us in torment. Job was brought to that point because the enemy was allowed to torment him. The level of anguish comes just as hurting souls that have been bound by the heavy shackles of sin for so long…they are desperate and reaching out for someone, something to save them. This where so many in the region in Fort Worth are right now. They need to be pulled out of that torment. There is One who has already Redeemed them. He has paid the price. He took on the responsibility of our sin and took it all the way to the grave. That’s where we belong. Dead. But HE ROSE on the THIRD DAY. He was and is that Mediator, that Redeemer, that Counsel, that SAVIOR! He paid the price. We can live FREE FROM SIN AND DEATH BECAUSE HE PAAAAIIIDDD IIIIITTTT AAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ITS DONE!!!! I’m thankful for this Revelation. Job represents the dying world lost in sin, reaching out for the redemption. Jesus we are Your hands and feet. We advance Your Kingdom. Let’s go reach the lost. In Jesus name.

  11. iLove the Kingdom
    18 Yea, young children despised me; I arose, and they spake against me.

    Wow, this is where Society has taken us today. Young children have no fear of adults anymore. How did this happen. The simple answer is whenever authority attempts to tell lil pookie something, folk disrespect the authority right in front of lil pookie and parents inform the authority not to mess with their child. Guess what society just did…they engrained into the Childs heart it was ok to disrespect authority. And the cycle continues…”You aint gonna tell me how to raise me kid…” Well there is a dark secret many folk don’t know…if you’re not allowing Godly authority to speak into your Childs life, guess who is “telling” you how to raise your kids??? Probably the enemy is. Wow.

  12. When you lose all hope.

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

    The answer is the Redeemer. He is the one that we should always turn too. Great is His power, great is His ways. Seek after Him and you will find Him. Call out His name and He will answer. Worship and sacrifice to Him and He will come. Praise Jesus and all His ways, seek after Him.

  13. “But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and he will stand upon the earth at last. And after my body has decayed, yet in my body I will see God!
    Job 19:25‭-‬26 NLT

    Now this is where my hope is!!! The same way tgat i know that my REDEEMER lives, i to shall live. No matter the circumstances i shall live. JESUS will aee me through.

  14. 25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
    26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:

    Knowing fully that Jesus is in control, and that we shall one day see him, should push us and give us confidence like Job to continue, even when the storms blow.

  15. FIRST THE KINGDOM
    I KNOW

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

    There are many things in life that my honest response has to be, “I Don’t KNOW”. Why JESUS did certain things way he did. Why people make the painful life choices they make. Why even I do or say certain things that I know are not productive.

    However, I DO emphatically, assuredly and positively KNOW that my redeemer liveth. His name is JESUS, HE Lives. HE was alive at Creation so that Job could testify and HE rose from the grave of the dead to LIVE forever so I could testify.

    Redeemer – a person who redeems; especially, capitalized : JESUS
    Redeem – 1a : to buy back : REPURCHASE
    b : to get or win back

  16. 19 All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loved are turned against me.

    This is the case in most times in our society today. When the going gets tough and your are in need, that’s when you really find out who your true friends are. We have to understand that this society is in the entitlement and wants everything now generation. It is not about preferring our brother any more. This is what has gotten most Christians frustrated with their walk with God. But remember the scripture tells us that God is choosing to be our friend when no one else will.

    Proverbs 17:7-
    A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

    Proverbs 18:24-
    A man [that hath] friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend [that] sticketh closer than a brother.

    John 15:13-
    Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

    No matter what we endure, remember Jesus has already endured everything that we could, can, or will go through. That is the promise of the sacrifice that he sent us the comforter to be with us if we will accept him and wait upon the Lord. Seek him first and we won’t have to ever be alone!

    I love the Kingdom!

  17. I Love to worship the Lord
    23-24
    How often we say things we wish we could take back Now in the strongest terms Job proclaims. the rightness ofwhat he has said He is willing to have his words engraved in rock One day his words will be proven true

  18. After watching my daughter pass away before my eyes, I know she believed and stood on God’s Word “My Redeemer Liveth!” She was confident no matter what she was going through at the time 😢

    Job 19:25,26 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and then he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:

    Psalms 17:15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

    Matthew 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.

    I Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part ; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

  19. My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me.

    When I gave my life to God I seriously thought that my family was going to be proud of me because I was going to live for God and not be a sinner. Well I was wrong I remember posting the day I got baptized in Jesus Name on the media and immediately I got attecked. I thought my family would be happy for me that I wasn’t going to be an alcoholic, a druggie, having babies all over the place, etc. But I was wrong…..the world loves to see us drown in this sinful world. This is where it might get hard but it’s something you have to think for yourself. It’s something that we need to stand up for and fight. Even when no one supports you on your walk with God, there is a church that loves you and will help you fight. Don’t leave the truth for your family, because at the end your family never died for your sins. This temporary world has nothing compared to the eternal life that we going to spend with Jesus!!!

  20. “Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but there is no judgment.”
    ‭‭Job‬ ‭19:7‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    There are times in our lives that we may feel so far away from God. Or we may feel as if he has forsaken us. But we must remind ourselves that He will never leave us or forsake us. He knows just how we feel because he felt the same way when he was on the cross.

    “Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭27:45-46‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  21. 2 How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words?
    3 These ten times have ye reproached me: ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me.
    4 And be it indeed that I have erred, mine error remaineth with myself.

    Enough is enough he says! Job is afflicted in his body, tormented in his mind and his friends are adding to his demise. Yet Job still speaks that he knows he will be redeemed and see God. He does not let these elder men convince him he has sinned-he maintains his integrity before them all.

  22. “How long will you torture me? How long will you try to crush me with your words? You have already insulted me ten times. You should be ashamed of treating me so badly. Even if I have sinned, that is my concern, not yours. You think you’re better than I am, using my humiliation as evidence of my sin. “My relatives stay far away, and my friends have turned against me.
    Job 19:2‭-‬5‭, ‬13 NLT
    Even when job friends prosecuted job love for God still strong . When people are going through something it’s not are right to judge them and prosecute them it’s are job to guide them and help them even if they sin .
    One thing we can learn from job is no matter what comes your way don’t loose hope in God don’t stop praise him , the Bible says God inhabit your praise . Even when we don’t feel he’s working
    Even when we can’t see he’s working

  23. Job 19:25-27
    25) For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
    26) And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:
    27) Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

    This is the HOPE that we have today, KNOWING that no matter what trial, test, or trouble we go through; no matter if we feel like our family and friends have failed or forgotten us; no matter if we go through sickness, Our REDEEMER LIVES!! And that someday, We Shall See GOD, and We Will BEHOLD Him for ourselves and see Him with our own eyes.

    Behold means to see or observe (a thing or person, especially a remarkable or impressive one). synonyms are look at, view, gaze at, witness, glimpse, pay attention to, lay eyes on, set eyes on, etc…
    Someday, we shall BEHOLD (see, look at, view, gaze at, witness, lay eyes on, set our eyes on) the Remarkable and Impressive ONE, JESUS!!

    “Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold.” This made me think of the chorus to the song “We Shall Behold Him.”
    Oh, we shall behold Him
    Yes, we shall behold Him
    Face to face in all of His glory
    Oh, we shall behold Him
    Yes, we shall behold Him
    Face to face Our Savior and Lord

  24. You have already insulted me ten times. You should be ashamed of treating me so badly. “I cry out, ‘Help!’ but no one answers me. …My close friends detest me. Those I loved have turned against me. “Have mercy on me, my friends, have mercy, for the hand of God has struck me. Must you also persecute me, like God does? Haven’t you chewed me up enough?
    Job 19:3‭, ‬7‭-‬7‭, ‬19‭, ‬21‭-‬22 NLT

    It has oft been said that the church is the only army that shoots its own wounded. My God. Help us.

    Why would we think it’s acceptable to crucify another believer? Someone is struggling, falling from grace, and our first response is to condemn them for cutting their hair? For the clothes they are wearing in a Facebook photo? Where is the grief? The compassion? The love? The hand that reaches out like the Samaritan to bandage wounds with no expectations, no condemnation?

    IT’S NOT OUR JOB TO CRUCIFY OTHER BELIEVERS, BUT TO HELP THEM CARRY THEIR CROSSES.

    Ministry doesn’t sit around and wait for the weak to fall because they don’t look like us or measure up to us. It doesn’t look at the hurting, the struggling, and pretend to bandage their wounds with judgments and criticisms. It doesn’t walk by on the other side of the street, afraid to be found guilty by association. No. Ministry comes along side, gets under the burden, and helps the wounded to stand, to fight on another day.

    I’d like to share a personal experience with this (forgive me if I’ve shared this before). When our daughter died, one brother felt it his duty to tell us that if we had had enough faith, God would have raised her up. Another respected sister told me it was a just reaping for the things I had sown before I came to Christ.

    Is that the job of the church? To look in the faces of the sick or the desperate and tell them they aren’t asking right, praying right, having the right kind of faith? I honestly don’t know what more faith could we have had? We declared. We proclaimed. We fasted. We believed. We prayed. We did everything we knew to do.

    And, as we were trying to accept the sovereignty of God and keep the faith in spite of our crushing disappointment and loss, fellow believers felt they had to defend God by telling us that it was our fault! That God took her on a technicality? Because we didn’t form our request right…because we weren’t sincere enough in our belief…because we deserved it? Miserable comforters! Executioners with nails in hand! Crucifying the wounded to justify God…

    Well, with friends like this… It’s no wonder that the wounded crawl away to die on their own: they don’t trust us to be loving and compassionate. To speak kindly. To cradle and protect. God, help us not to slay the sick, the wounded, the grieving among us with our callous and misguided words!

    We’re the church, the body of Christ in the earth.

    IT’S TIME WE PUT AWAY THE HAMMER AND NAILS AND PICK UP THE BALM AND GAUZE.

    The wounded are among us. They need care, not condemnation.

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

    26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:

  26. MSG – I Know That God Lives
    13-20 “God alienated my family from me;
    everyone who knows me avoids me.
    My relatives and friends have all left;
    houseguests forget I ever existed.
    The servant girls treat me like a bum off the street,
    look at me like they’ve never seen me before.
    I call my attendant and he ignores me,
    ignores me even though I plead with him.
    My wife can’t stand to be around me anymore.
    I’m repulsive to my family.
    Even street urchins despise me;
    when I come out, they taunt and jeer.
    Everyone I’ve ever been close to abhors me;
    my dearest loved ones reject me.
    I’m nothing but a bag of bones;
    my life hangs by a thread.
    21-22 “Oh, friends, dear friends, take pity on me.
    God has come down hard on me!
    Do you have to be hard on me, too?
    Don’t you ever tire of abusing me?
    23-27 “If only my words were written in a book—
    better yet, chiseled in stone!
    Still, I know that God lives—the One who gives me back my life—
    and eventually he’ll take his stand on earth.
    And I’ll see him—even though I get skinned alive!—
    see God myself, with my very own eyes.
    Oh, how I long for that day!

    Job is desperately crying out his grief of how his friends and family had left him high and dry – yes he still acknowledges that HIS GOD LIVES!!!

    It is disheartening when you are going through something that you feel like all your family and friends have turned their back on your and you are standing alone. Yet never fear, we have confidence in God that He is always with us. We may be going through a quiet season, where He chooses not to answer us, but He is still with us.

    I have this confidence because
    I’ve seen the faithfulness of God
    The still inside the storm, the promise of the shore
    I trust the power of Your word
    Enough to seek Your Kingdom first
    Beyond the barren place, beyond the ocean waves

    When I walk through the waters, I won’t be overcome
    When I go through the rivers, I will not be drowned
    My God will make a way, so I am not afraid

    You keep the promises You make
    There isn’t one that is delayed
    So I will not lose heart, here, I will lift my arms
    And start to sing into the night
    My praise will call the sun to rise
    Declare the battle won, declare that it is done

    When I walk through the waters, I won’t be overcome
    When I go through the rivers, I will not be drowned
    My God will make a way, so I am not afraid
    When I am in the fire, I will not feel the flame
    I’ll stand before the giant, declaring victory
    My God will make a way, so I am not afraid

    Before me, behind me, always beside me
    No shadow, no valley, where You won’t find me
    No, I am not afraid

  27. 14 My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me.

    We must not rely on those around us for our salvation. The prayers of others for you, will not establish a personal altar nor personal relationship with you and your Savior.

    When our foundation is built on people and not the Firm Word of God, it is unstable. Humanity has a history of having “hiccups” and moments of failure. When the person you have built your foundation on becomes unstable, you will begin to waver and crack as well.

    We must ensure that our foundation is built on The Rock.

    Matt 7:24 – 25 “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.”

  28. 25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

    If you’ve lost everything, is the simple fact the you have Jesus, enough for you?

    “For the death that He died, He died to sin [ending its power and paying the sinner’s debt] once and for all; and the life that He lives, He lives to [glorify] God [in unbroken fellowship with Him].”
    ‭‭ROMANS‬ ‭6:10‬ ‭AMP‬‬

    Jesus himself, rather than anything else in creation, is the most costly and bountiful gift God could give. If we have been given Jesus, we will be given all things.
    Jesus is the greatest gift there is.

  29. 25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

    If you’ve lost everything, is the simple fact the you have Jesus, enough for you?

    “For the death that He died, He died to sin [ending its power and paying the sinner’s debt] once and for all; and the life that He lives, He lives to [glorify] God [in unbroken fellowship with Him].”
    ‭‭ROMANS‬ ‭6:10‬ ‭AMP‬‬

    Jesus himself, rather than anything else in creation, is the most costly and bountiful gift God could give. If we have been given Jesus, we will be given all things.
    Jesus is the greatest gift there is.

  30. He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths.
    Job 19:8 KJV
    There are times God hedges or fences our way so that we cannot pass. I am thankful for this kind of Divine intervention in my life. Lord knows He has kept me many times from danger and evil. To some it can be viewed as a blessing to others as restrictive. We used to live in a beautiful tropical island with near perfect weather surrounded by clear blue water. Yet, some people did not appreciate it and got island fever. They longed to leave while others never wanted to leave. We are truly blessed to have God ordering our steps, especially when He’s keeping us from the snares of the enemy!

  31. 29You should fear punishment yourselves,
    for your attitude deserves punishment.
    Then you will know that there is indeed a judgment.”

    We all have felt that others should get punished for their actions. We feel like why am I getting punished and others don’t. Be we should have fear of being punished due to our carnal desires.

  32. Even when things are not going right in your life, God is still there. He knows what you’re going through and how to bring you out. Trust God and he will always make a way.

  33. 14 My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me.

    In all situations whenever your friends, family, and everyone leaves you it doesn’t matter because Jesus is the only one taht we need to please. It may seem like our life is under attack but our God is just waiting on us!

  34. Praise Jesus!!!
    For I know that my Redeemer and Vindicator lives, And at the last He will take His stand upon the earth. Even after my [mortal] skin is destroyed [by death], Yet from my [immortal] flesh I will see God, Whom I, even I, will see for myself, And my eyes will see Him and not another! My heart faints within me.
    JOB 19:25‭-‬27 AMP

    Now the mind of the flesh is death [both now and forever—because it pursues sin]; but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace [the spiritual well-being that comes from walking with God—both now and forever];
    ROMANS 8:6 AMP

    Our redeemer. Our healer. Our protector. Our salvation. He is our way to an eternal life in heaven. I love reading books from the old testament and finding the prophecy of Jesus.

  35. How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words?

    What are you building up or tearing down? There is much power in the spoken word. There is much more power of the word spoken under the junction of the Holy Spirit. Even more, can we speak those things that are already written in His Word. Pray the word. Speak those things that God says are yours. Call upon him and speak the Word. Instead of speaking how bad and magnify your situation speak life which is in the Word of God. Encourage yourself in the One that is able and says that You Can do all things through Christ. Speak life to others, to you.

  36. Job 19:25,27a

    25) for I know that my redeemer livith, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

    27a) when I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another;

  37. 2 How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words?

    How long will you torment my soul: Job answered Bildad with a familiar complaint, that his friends were unsympathetic tormentors of his soul.
    They struck at him with their hard words, as if they were breaking stones on the roadside. We ought to be very careful what we say to those who are suffering affliction and trial, for a word, though it seems to be a very little thing, will often cut far more deeply and wound far more terribly than a razor would.

  38. Know now that God hath overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net.

    7 Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but there is no judgment.

    8 He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths.

    9 He hath stripped me of my glory, and taken the crown from my head.

    10 He hath destroyed me on every side, and I am gone: and mine hope hath he removed like a tree.

    11 He hath also kindled his wrath against me, and he counteth me unto him as one of his enemies.
