One Redeemer- Many Names

31 May

One Redeemer – Many Names…

In Psalm 103:4, it says of the Lord “who redeems your life from the pit”. But in Hebrew, it doesn’t say that. It uses a much more specific word, the Hebrew “goel”. It would read something like “who goels your life from the pit”.

The “goel” was the kinsman-redeemer, the man who would redeem the life of a barren widow by marrying her and making her fruitful with children. So, in Psalm 103, it’s not just that God redeems us, it’s that He becomes our “goel,” our kinsman-redeemer. He redeems us by marrying us, by joining Himself to us by becoming one with us so that our lives can’t help but bear fruit.

And that is the secret. Do you want your life to become overflowing with fruitfulness? Do you want to fulfill your purpose and calling? Do you want your life to be abundantly blessed? Then make it your aim to get as close, as intimate, as joined, and as one with God as possible in everything and it will be. For the Lord is not only your Redeemer – He’s your Goel!

Our Redeemer, the Lord Almighty is his name, is the Holy One of Israel. Isaiah 47:4

Make it your aim to get goeled! Get as close, as intimate, as joined, and as one with God in every way possible.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
