When you get to the end of the book of Job.  When Job has really been questioning God and where God was in the middle of all his pain.  Job knew he lead a good life and now He is wondering “what is gong on?”  His friends have turned on him and told Job that he must be some secretly sorry human being. 
 
Then the Lord said to Job, “Do you still want to argue with the Almighty?  You are God’s critic, but do you have the answers?”  Job 40:1-2
 
I heard this song by Nicole C. Mullins this morning …. It brought tears of joy to me.
 
 
It made me think about the Job and God conversation….  God is God … I am not … Jesus is my redeemer … and even through everything that seems like it shouldn’t happen … The ONE who is over all, wants what is best for you and me.
 
Who taught the sun where to stand in the morning?
And who told the ocean you can only come this far?
And who showed the moon where to hide till evening?
Whose words alone can catch a falling star?

Chorus:
Well I know my Redeemer lives
I know my Redeemer lives
All of creation testifies
This life within me cries
I know my Redeemer lives

Ye-e-eah
The very same God
That spins things in orbit
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-I-I know
My Redeemer

He lives
To take away my shame
And He lives
Forever I’ll proclaim
That the payment for my sins
Was the precious life He gave
And now He’s alive and
There’s an empty
Grave!

And I know
My Redeemer lives
He lives
I know
My Redeemer lives
Let all creation testify
Let this life within me cry
I-I-I know my Redeemer

I know
My Redeemer lives
I know my Redeemer lives

I know, That I know, that I know, that I know, that I know
He lives my redeemer lives
Because He lives I can face tomorrow
He lives
I know, I know
He lives
I spoke with Him this morning!
He lives
The tomb is empty
He lives
He Lives! I’m going to tell everybody!!
