“You’ve gone into my future to prepare the way, and in kindness you follow behind me to spare me from the harm of my past. You have laid your hand on me!” Psalm 139:5 (TPT)
I chose to share this particular translation of this verse because it best reflects the deep richness of the original Hebrew words. We are learning here that our Redeemer is not limited by TIME.
He is ETERNAL and therefore has the ability to go BEFORE us into our FUTURE preparing the way for us to be what He has desired us to be!
However, that’s not all! He also has the ability and authority to stand between us and the pain of our PAST! He ever lives to “hem” us in, to provide safety and security for us, as we are journeying through this realm of TIME on our way to live in ETERNITY with Him!
“Jesus is in our past, our present and our future — with His precious redeeming Blood to guard and protect us.”
This verse reveals to us that Jesus is in our PAST, our PRESENT and our FUTURE, all at the same time, with His precious REDEEMING BLOOD to guard and protect us from ALL that would seek to harm us! He has provided for us blood that has power to “buy back” ALL of His SEED that lost their way because of THE FALL.
Nothing, no NOTHING will be able to steal your destiny, not even the painful events and circumstances of your past or PRESENT! Jesus is already THERE and His blood alone REDEEMS and Protects! Your FUTURE is also secure with Him because He is going before you to prepare the way!
We are indeed a blessed people to have such a REDEEMER! You and I can REST today in the revelation that He has laid His HAND on us and we are SAFE!
