Who Goels Your Life

Who Goels Your Life…

From The Pit in Psalm 103, verse 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.”

Thus 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 God “goels” us. 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.

That’s 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, as one with God as possible, in everyting – and it will be. For the Lord is not only your Redeemer – He’s your Goel!

Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:1-5

Ask God to get closer to you today. Expect it; look for it and He will do it.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
