For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth.

Job 19:25

When I wake up in the morning, when I go to sleep at night, every step of my day;
there is little that is certain except Job’s simple statement. Yet contained in
it are many deep and remarkable thoughts. I have a Redeemer; One who has
purchased me out of sin’s slavery, One who has provided me with a refuge from
the attacks that are inevitable for God’s family, One who has moved me out
of the shack that I lived in and into his mansion. I am no longer lost,
wandering in the desert of hopelessness with an eternal guarantee of more of
the same. I am redeemed!

My Redeemer is a living one; for, He is as powerful and His presence is as
vital today as it was at the beginning of time. He never changes, He never
diminishes, and He is never distant. The Lord is totally involved with my
life. Christ does not ever look upon His work in me as finished, He holds
out hope when all seems beyond redemption and repair, and He
continually guides me through life. Jesus, my Redeemer, provides the
force of life to my soul.

Finally, God gives us a promise; there is a glorious future as well. In the
end, the Lord will return to earth and Creation’s perfect order will be
restored. I will be living in the sinless world that God intended, and I
will do this with a body and a mind that have not been damaged by sin. I
will be in God’s presence and all of Creation will be singing songs of
joy. Until then, however, my life is filled with worship and praise for the One
who brought me into a life that can be lived today in that future reality.
My Redeemer lives and he lives in me!
