Verse of the Day

Isaiah 54:5

For your Creator will be your husband; the Lord of Heaven’s Armies is his name! He is your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, the God of all the earth.

Isaiah 54:5

God, Your Redeemer

God, the author of love and the creator of marriage calls himself our husband. He loves us that much, with a deep, passionate kind of love. That word redeemer means to redeem, buy, or pay back. Our sins condemned us to hell, even the littlest sin condemns us and prevents us from being with the Father. When Jesus died on the cross, He purchased us back from the grave with His blood. We were pledged to Satan because of our sins, and He bought us back. He is not only our Redeemer, Creator, and husband, but He is also the God of Heaven’s armies. In fact, this verse says it is his name! What a beautiful picture! He storms the gates of hell with all of His armies! He himself is an army! We mean that much to Him.

This God who created people to be in a marriage relationship with him, who rescues His people from the grave, redeems them and gives them a new name, is the God of all the earth. He reigns; He sits on His throne and rules everything from the beasts of the fields to every nation. He is King. Will you submit to His authority in your life and allow Him to be your redeemer today?

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,

You are my rescuer and redeemer. You loved me so much that you bought me and stole me from the pits of hell. May I praise your name forever. Amen
