Read Job 19:23-27

Job 19:23-27 Contemporary English Version (CEV)
23 I wish that my words
could be written down
24     or chiseled into rock.
25 I know that my Savior[a] lives,
and at the end
   he will stand on this earth.
26 My flesh may be destroyed,
yet from this body
   I will see God.[b]
27 Yes, I will see him for myself,
   and I long for that moment.

Footnotes:

Think

Through all his trials Job is convinced that God is good and will restore balance and justice to his life and the world.  

Pray

Lord I long to see you, your love and your justice.
