“Yet I know that my Redeemer lives,
and in the end, He will stand on earth.
New Year – Same God
Happy Monday! “Yet I know that my Redeemer lives, and in the end, He will stand on earth.” Job 19:25 TLV What hope Job had! He called our Lord, his “Redeemer!” What depth of faith Job had as he endured such hard, grueling circumstances in his body and in his personal world.
When I saw this verse this morning (because of my musical brain), I immediately thought of Nicole C. Mullen’s song, “Redeemer.” Hands lifted high to the heavens, belting this song out and waking up my almost deaf dog, my heartache shifted to praise. I started thinking of how when we reflect on all our Redeemer, our Jesus, did for us and proclaim the promises of God, the heaviness of our circumstances seem to dissipate the more we recall His goodness over us and our lives.
Out of curiosity, I looked up what scripture Nicole’s song was written from and it said from Job. Here’s a little excerpt from www.songfacts.com on her song, “How powerful – that regardless of what we go through, regardless of what the world tells us – that we can stand up with our shoulders back and our head straight and forward and say, “I know that my Redeemer lives in spite of what I’m going through, in spite of what I’ve seen or what’s going on around me.”
Play this song today, sing your heart out to your Redeemer and know that your Redeemer lives! https://youtu.be/6QvX4CwSmwY
It’s a new year, but He’s the Same God of Job and of you.
