SCRIPTURES: Job 19:25 For I know that MY REDEEMER [GA’AL] liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: Isaiah 49:26 “…And all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and THY REDEEMER [GA’AL], the mighty One of Jacob.” Isaiah 60:16 “…Thou shalt know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and THY REDEEMER [GA’AL], the mighty One of Jacob.” Jeremiah 50:34 “Their Redeemer is strong; the LORD of hosts is his name: he shall throughly plead their cause…”
THOUGHT: In the verses above, Job, while in desperate circumstances, clings to his hope in the LORD as his Redeemer, while the LORD promises the children of Israel, as He also promises to you that He is your Savior and your Redeemer. The sin and degradation of mankind is an offence against a Holy God which put all of man in the direct line for bondage, destruction and death (See Romans 3:23 and Romans 6:23). Confronted with man’s rebellion and sin God Himself did and still does the unthinkable. Responding in the opposite spirit, He gave His Son, Jesus Christ, to become your Redeemer. Although you live on this earth, have a family, job, friends, etc, you are living in a time of suspended judgment. God is the great JEHOVAH GA’AL, JEHOVAH YOUR REDEEMER who has made a way for your Redemption.
PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father, MY LORD AND REDEEMER [JEHOVAH GA’AL]: Thank You for giving me a chance to see Your heart of love and forgiveness in that You are determined to be my Redeemer. I thank You Jesus that You shed Your precious blood to ransom me from the punishment that I should receive and that my sins are thrown into the depths of the sea. I receive the Redeeming power of Your love and forgiveness and thank You for this deliverance, In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!

Psalm 78:35 And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer. Proverbs 23:11 For their redeemer is mighty; he shall plead their cause with thee. Isaiah 44:6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.
