The Redeemer in Disguise
Ruth is gleaning food in the fields as a foreigner and she stumbles onto the field of Boaz. They meet, but she has no idea that he’s going to be the redemption of her life. She doesn’t see her story as beautiful. Her redeemer is right there, but hidden from her heart. God already had the answer before she saw it. As for you, in your hardest and lowest times, the most beautiful things are happening.
When you look back, you see that God already had the answer waiting for you. You didn’t see it, but it was right there. People are blessed with great testimonies. What makes these testimonies so beautiful is that when it seemed hopeless, God was right there. God’s beautiful flowers germinate in darkness; when you don’t feel anything. Bless Him anyway, because He’s there. Learn to start thanking God now before you see the answer. Rejoice that it’s there, and you’ll see it. In your darkest times, the redeemer is waiting, Messiah in disguise, right there in your midst. He’s waiting for you to rejoice and give God the glory before you see it.
Isaiah 41:14 ... Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the Lord, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
Job 19:25 ... For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
Proverbs 23:11 ... For their redeemer is mighty; he shall plead their cause with thee.
Psalm 78:35 ... And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer.❤
