My Redeemer

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

Have you ever had your best efforts crumble into the dust? Crushed dreams and painful losses are the humbling reality most everyone experiences at some point. That is why this month’s name-of-God focus is so glorious: My Redeemer. Redemption is not just what God does, it’s who He is! Nothing is ever a total loss when you know God as your personal Redeemer.

God’s redemptive heart cries out from cover to cover in the Bible, but only Job speaks the name aloud:

I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the end he will stand on the dust (Job 19:25 CSB).

Great hope flows from believing God can redeem tragic situations, but life-transforming awe radiates from the lives of those who see God as a personal rescuer. Knowing God as My Redeemer and believing He (and His glory) will come stand on the dust of my broken best, positions me to be used by God in magnificent ways.

Mary the mother of Jesus held this powerful view of God. We see it in her response to the angel’s proclamation of her highly favored status:

My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior (Luke 1:46-47).

A humble heart sees God’s greatness and receives His abundant favor and grace. The tragedies of life become triumphs when you welcome God into the wreckage of life. Truly, “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted; he saves those crushed in spirit” (Psalm 34:18 CSB). The redemptive heart of God loves to bring blessings to His children.

Do you have places in your life that need restoration? Your Redeemer lives, and He’s waiting for the invitation to enter your pain and transform it with His glory. Jesus came to destroy every work of the devil. Invite Him in to transform your trial into a testimony of His glory – and then tell the world about it!
