I am reminded through these verses that even Job knew that his redeemer lives. (Job 19:25) It awes me to think that God, in the beginning, knew what our choice would be and already had plans in place for Jesus to be our redeemer if we would accept him. Not only that, but once we accept Jesus for who he is, he will also intercede for us. How well can our souls silently wait upon our Lord.
Oh, that these thoughts would give us comfort, and an inner strength that can only come from God, to carry on living for Him!
