You have to admire Job’s integrity and firm resolve to remain faithful even though he felt everything was being stripped away. He even goes to the extreme of saying, “As God lives,” which is like inviting God to kill you if you weren’t telling the truth. We need to remember that Job is making this commitment prospectively. He doesn’t know what the future holds but he’s committing today to walk in integrity tomorrow. We should take some time today and sincerely commit to the Lord, because we are here for the “long run” no matter what comes our way.
As long as I have breath,
