Episode 350

TODAY’S READING:

Our Redeemer—the LORD Almighty is his name— is the Holy One of Israel.

Isaiah 47:4

 

I saw the first episode of Squid Games last night. What an interesting show. I might finish it. Let’s see if they hook me after episode 2.

 

Without spoiling anything, as I was watching the show, I thought about games in real life. Today is Friday, so it’s our game night day. My sisters and I and our perspective boyfriends gather for a few board games and dinner at least twice a month.

 

There are some games that final elimination means exactly that – final – and there is no chance at redemption. Sometimes in life, we do things, and they are final. There is no redemption—things like final exams or project submissions.

 

There are real genuine moments, sometimes deep failures, that we wish we could go back and change the outcome, but it is not in our power to do so.

 

When we think of Jesus and what he did, we realize that He doesn’t play by those rules. Instead of seeing his final days, he had the final word, and because of what He did, He gets to redeem us every single day.

 

So although we cannot go back and change the past, we can look at our lives through the eyes of redemption. The shame we felt has been redeemed. The sin we carried for so long has been redeemed. The failures we endured were redeemed. As a result of surrendering our lives to His, we find redemption. It’s better than any game on the shelves. 

 

PRAYER

Father God, thank you for another beautiful Friday. Today Lord, we thank you. We thank you for redeeming us. We thank you for having the final word. We thank you that every day we can hand it all over to you. We ask that you bless the weekend ahead of us. It is in your holy name that we pray, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
