At an Abundance event in Mississippi earlier this year, storyteller, Bible teacher, and author, Lisa Harper, shared about Job, his difficulty, and his hope for a Redeemer.
“Difficulty is not God’s discipline in a punitive way. More often than not, it’s a promotion. It’s Him saying, ‘I believe that the way she’s gonna walk this out is going to bring me glory.'”
“It sounds like Job is smoking something medicinal if you don’t understand that we have a Trinitarian God.”
“A thousand years before we see Christ, Job says, ‘He’s comin’. My Go’el is comin’ and he’s gonna stand in the gap between me and God.'”
“Go’el Jesus comes on to the scene and shrugs into an orange jumpsuit meant for us and says, ‘I love her so much that I’m going to redeem her story.'”
