God as Redeemer: Replacing Loss with Something Only He Can Give

Have you discovered that God wants to redeem things that you never dreamed possible?
Well, I have embarked on that discovery and I believe it is one of the most beautiful and
touching things about God.  I am understanding that this is nothing less than solid
evidence of His love for me, so it changes my perspective of things I believe I
had lost.  I also believe, knowing the character and faithfulness of God, that I will see
possibilities in my life like never before.

Time and again in His Word God shows His redemption.  And because He has already
redeemed the most important things in my life.  He has redeemed me from hell, from second
death, from condemnation, from sin. His words cause me to be expectant and hopeful about
what God can do in situations of extreme loss.

In Isaiah, He asks, "Is My hand shorted that it cannot redeem?"  And in the book of
Jeremiah, He says, "I will deliver you from the hand of the wicked and I will redeem
you from the grip of the terrible".  So I know that no matter what has been lost or
stolen in my life, God will restore it in some way.    In Psalm 34, God tells me that
He redeems the soul of His servants.  Of course it's always in His time and His way,
but I know that there will come a point when I no longer feel the pain of certain losses.

The Lord has shown me lovingkindness and tender mercies.  In all things, I worship Him
as my God and my Savior, my Protector and my Deliverer and my Redeemer! His praise is
always on my lips no matter what the circumstances, because He has graciously showed me
that He alone knows how to repair and rebuild no matter how much damage has occurred.
I am confident that I will never experience any loss so great that He cannot restore or redeem
it in some way.

Lord, thank you for loving me so great that You desire to restore my life in every way.
Redeem me and revive me according to Your Word. (Psalm 119:154).  Draw near to my
soul, and redeem it.  (Psalm 69:18)  Redeem me and be merciful to me.  (Psalm 26:11)
Thank you for all the redemption You have already worked in my life, please continue
to redeem my life in ways I never dreamed possible. I proclaim that You alone, God, are
the God of Impossibilities!  You are Faithful.
