Maybe you’re familiar with that old hymn, “I Know That My Redeemer Lives.” I’ve sung it many times, but I’ve not always applied it in my daily life. For example, have you ever let guilt get in between you and God? I have. Or maybe someone has hurt you badly. You’re wounded and you can’t let it go. I’ve experienced those feelings too. Matthew 12:20, NRSV: “He will not break a bruised reed or quench a smoldering wick until he brings justice to victory.” Sometimes we can feel we are that bruised reed or smoldering wick. Whether good or evil has happened, whether our fault or the fault of others, we can have faith. God is our redeemer. No matter how the day looks, may the wholeness and fullness of his restoring peace be with you always. Shalom!
