For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth (Job 19:25 ESV)
Job made the statement above in the midst of his calamities. He had lost his children. He had lost everything he owned. His health was in peril, and he was in constant pain and distress. Notwithstanding, he remembered one thing, that the One who redeems his life from all his distresses is still alive. Job’s hope was that God was still alive and in caring for him.
The same God who redeemed job from all his distresses is still alive today. Your redeemer lives. At the end of His life, David also made a similar statement in 1 Kings and said: “As the LORD lives, who has redeemed my soul out of every adversity” (1 Ki. 1:29 ESV). The Lord, the Redeemer, had redeemed his soul from the troubles that came upon him from his youth. He was not live a problem-free life. No, God redeemed him out of all the problems that came his way.
Put your hope and trust in the LORD. You may be like Job, in the midst of a crisis right now. Or maybe you are like David who is looking back and seeing how God has redeemed you out of your troubles. Whatever the case, the LORD is your Redeemer, and He will redeem your soul out of every adversity. You have a sure anchor for your soul in Christ.
Job’s words above were fulfilled in Christ. Jesus is the ultimate Redeemer of humanity ( 1 Cor. 1:30). Declare with Job and David now and say “I know that my Redeemer lives and He will redeem my soul out of every adversity.”
APPLY THE WORD
Trust and rest in your Redeemer. He is still alive and is with you. Irrespective of the storms raging at you, remember that your Redeemer still lives.
Thank the LORD in faith right now for redeeming your soul out of every trouble.
