Bible Verse of the Day
Thursday, April 29, 2021


Job 19:25
I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth.
Job was a good and righteous man who walked in the ways of the Lord. In fact, his righteousness prompted God to say of him, “There is no one on earth like him” (Job 1:8). God blessed Job for his righteousness, and so Job earned the title, “the greatest man among all the people of the East” (1:3).

Yet Job endured unspeakable suffering. Though he had done nothing wrong, he lost everything—his family, his wealth, his reputation, even his health. If that weren’t enough, his wife and his friends offered him no real comfort. Job’s friends told him that he had suffered because of some hidden sin in his life.

Job is a stark biblical example of a fact we need to understand: even those who are right with God will suffer. Will we allow the suffering to tear down our faith or build it up? These are our only choices. Job chose to trust God, his Redeemer, and he was rewarded for his faith (Job 19:25, 26; 42:1–6, 10–17).
