Daily Devotional for January 31
O God, ransom Israel from all its troubles. —Psalm 25:22
Oh, how great was the redemption that God accomplished for Israel on that night of deliverance! First, they were delivered from death. In like manner, we, too, have been delivered from eternal death—spared from hell and from being cut off from God forever.
Next, they were redeemed from sickness. Psalm 105:37 says that “there were no sick or feeble people among them,” even after many years of hard labor! In the same way, Christ paid for our healing, for we “have been healed by his wounds” (1 Peter 2:24).
Then the Israelites were redeemed from poverty. Overnight they went from being paupers to being prosperous when they “asked the Egyptians for clothing and articles of silver and gold” (Exodus 12:35). The Lord gave them favor and the Egyptians granted their request, providing them with all they needed in order to live in the wilderness and to build a glorious tabernacle for the Lord.
We can claim a full inheritance of provision for any need we have to advance the glory of God. Our redemption was not paid for with the blood of bulls and goats, but with the precious blood of Christ!
