For I Know My Redeemer Lives

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12

Job was feeling hard-pressed on every side to the point of soul-crushing agony. Still, he declared, “I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth” (Job 19:25). When all else fails, when earthly tribulations swallow us whole, when seismic activity causes our mountains to shift and become too steep to climb, we can still cling tight to our faith and intentionally declare, “For I know, that I know, that I know my Redeemer lives.” One rapturous day, Jesus will stand on the earth as Lord of all.

When tough times and motherhood struggles swarm our way, we can take out the queen bee when we say, “Lord have your way.” When tribulations read their ugly heads, we can pull our swords of God’s Truth from their sheaves and say, “Jesus, you’ve got this! Your Will be done.” In this way, we look the snake in the eyes and slice off his skull before he strikes.

Ultimately Jesus has the final say. In our everyday battles, in our children’s hearts, in our marriages, and beyond, God is in full control. Even when the steering wheels of our lives swerve due to life’s unforeseen obstacles, we can let Jesus take the wheel. In full confidence, we can declare, “It’s going to be okay, one way or another.” Christ has paved a highway that leads directly to Heaven, specifically for you and me. We have nothing to fear about a few potholes or unexpected turbulence. “For I know my Redeemer lives.”

Cling tight to this hope when all else fails, when your brakes give out and your circumstances seem bleak. Remember, God can do anything and everything when we allow him into our everyday moments and live by faith. Choose faith over fear. Let the love of Christ courageously emerge out of you and grace people’s lives.

God has appointed us as co-heirs in His Kingdom purposes. For this reason, we can live anointed lives and rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give thanks in all situations (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). Ultimately the Lord will have his way: in our hearts, in our homes, and in our daily lives.

For I know my Redeemer lives.

Dear Jesus,

I know that you are a victorious God. You nailed my sins to the cross and shed your own righteous blood so that I could be set free. Help me to walk in the light of abundance, living a hope-filled life of purpose. In Jesus’ resurrected name, amen.

Steps of Faith:

  • The Lord will see you through all that he has called you to, and give you the strength to rise from the ashes. When you encounter Job-like tsunamis that wreak havoc and shatter hearts, the Lord is able to repiece and repurpose our broken parts. For His glory and delight, he will heal you and transform your life into a stained-glass mosaic that sheds light and exudes the testimony of Christ into lost and hurting people’s lives. Hope, believe, and pray for this miracle of restoration and pain-resurrected purpose for your life.

  • Meditate on the following verse: 

Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming. 1 Peter 1:13
