    Sons and Daughters from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. I had a great Dad who always managed to have hope even in the darkest times. I remember once when I was little, the engine in his car began knocking, and he had no money for parts. So he jacked it up in the yard and pulled the oil pan o...

    Seek Yahweh while he may be found. Call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts. Let him return to Yahweh, and he will have mercy on him, to our God, for he will freely pardon. Isaiah 55:6-7 WEB.I am a morning person. I like to get the most impor...

The Redeemer

  • Yahweh, your Redeemer, and he who formed you from the womb says: "I am Yahweh, who makes all things; who alone stretches out the heavens; who spreads out the earth by myself; Isaiah 44:24 WEB.

    When someone was in trouble, danger, or dire need during biblical times, a male relative could step in and "redeem" them. This relative was called a "kinsmen redeemer." They could step in and pay off their debts, buy back their property, and set them free from indentured servitude.

    A great example of this is in the book of Ruth. Both Ruth and her mother-in-law Naomi were widows living penniless, gleaning left behind wheat in the fields to eat. Then a wealthy relative named Boaz stepped up and took them in. Ruth suddenly went from having nothing to having it all. Though Ruth was a Moabitess, she became King David's great grandmother and is listed in the lineage of Jesus Christ (Matthew 1:5).

    The Lord is often mentioned as a Redeemer in the Bible. The word Redeem means: to save, compensate for the defects of, vindicate. In this light, the Lord wants to:

    - (Save) Rescue you and keep you safe from danger.

    - Compensate for your defects and make you a better person.

    - (Vindicate) Clear you of all blame.

    Jesus Christ became our Redeemer. He stepped in and laid down His own life for us. He paid the debt we couldn't pay. Jesus has chosen the church as His own bride, just as Boaz chose Ruth. So leave yesterday behind and let the Lord guide you from this day on. Your past is in the past, and your future is now a bright one. Don't look back.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You so much for redeeming me. Lord, I want all that You have for me in this life. Please lead me and teach me the things that I should know. Let me hear You clearly. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (Philippians 4:6-7) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
