One of the most profound statements in the Bible was made by Job. In Job 19:25, He said: For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth. At the time he said this, he was in a most distressing situation. Things were very bad indeed. He had lost all his wealth, property, children and even his health. However, in spite of his ordeal, he still proclaimed that God was alive. Many people tend to believe that God is not alive or that He is not who He says He is, just because of the severe trials of faith they are facing. Ordinarily, problems could swallow you, but God’s presence with you makes it impossible. This is God’s solemn vow to you. This should give you great confidence and assurance that He will never allow anyone or anything swallow you up. Problems can never take God away. He doesn’t cease to exist just because He has not answered your prayers. How much faith can you repose in God while going through difficult times. This is a true test of your character, but be rest assured that afflictions can never swallow God.
