“O Israel, hope in the Lord; for with the Lord there is lovingkindness, and with Him is abundant redemption. And He will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.” (Psalm 130:7-8)
It is so simple and we make it so complex. The world offers the same thing over and over again; sin, death, and the devil. The Lord frees us from this bondage so that we may live differently. He has promised to redeem those who turn to Him. So, turn to Him. This does not mean all will be well in this world. It means that all will be well with your soul. Come then to the Lord and receive His abundant redemption.
Lord, You know that I am filled with the pablum of this world. You know that I am selfish and want things as I want them. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I would live into the redemption You have given me through Christ. Lift my soul up by Your word that I may live according to Your truth. Teach me to love as You love that I may be in You and You in me.
Lord Jesus, You have come into the world for the sake of as many as would believe. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I may grow in Your likeness. I think Your Word says the same thing over and over, because I am doing the same thing over and over. Release me from the traps of this age that I may do what is pleasing in the Father’s sight now and always. Amen.
