You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, and Your right hand upholds me; and You have stooped to make me great. Psalm 18:35.

Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have ransomed me, O LORD, God of truth. Psalm 31:5.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

David sang that in My meekness, humility, and gentleness, I had stooped to make him great. Psalm 18:35. That I rent the heavens and came down to rescue him and draw him out of stormy waters, I delivered him from the enemy. Psalm 18:9-16. And what did I do? I put him in a vast, free, wealthy (overflowing with abundance) place. Psalm 18:19; Psalm 66:12.

And in Christ Jesus, I did it for everyone. He has paid the ransom for all. 1 Timothy 2:6. He is meek and humble of heart and in Him your souls find rest. And in seeing Him, you see Me. I have stooped to make you great. “He made Him (Jesus) who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21.

Jesus emptied Himself, humbled Himself, stooped low, and went to the cross that you might be raised up with Him to sit with Him in Heaven. He stooped to make you great. “Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 4:6-11. He emptied Himself for you to be full, to have abundant life. “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich.” 2 Corinthians 8:9.

“He raises the poor from the dust, He lifts the needy from the ash heap, to make them sit with nobles, and inherit a seat of honor.” 1 Samuel 2:8. I reach down with My strong arm to raise you up. Like Jesus when Peter was sinking on the lake, He reached out His hand and pulled him up to where He was.

You will eat and drink at My table in My Kingdom. Blessed is the servant at work about his Master’s affairs, I will seat him at table and wait on him. Jesus came to serve not to be served, to give His life for you as a ransom. He paid the ransom for all. Not due to your works, a person that is taken captive cannot pay his own ransom. “No man can by any means redeem his brother or give to God a ransom for him—for the redemption of his soul is costly, and he should cease trying forever—that he should live on eternally, that he should not undergo decay.” Psalm 49:7-9. You could not pay it, so I did, but not with perishable things like gold and silver, but with the eternal, imperishable sacrifice of My Son, by His eternal blood of the new and everlasting Covenant. I have found a ransom. “Then let Him be gracious to him, and say, ‘Deliver him from going down to the pit, I have found a ransom’; Let his flesh become fresher than in youth, let him return to the days of his youthful vigor; then he will pray to God, and He will accept him, that he may see His face with joy, and He may restore His righteousness to man. He will sing to men and say, ‘I have sinned and perverted what is right, and it is not proper for me. He has redeemed my soul from going to the pit, and my life shall see the light.’ Behold, God does all these oftentimes with men, to bring back his soul from the pit, that he may be enlightened with the light of life.” Job 33:24-30.

The ransom price lifts you up. Your kinsman redeemer has paid and bought you out of the slavery of sin and death to sit with Him, to be His body, to be the Church, His bride. You are now a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people set apart. You are Mine and I am yours. I have ransomed you at a great price. An eternal life for the eternal life you lost, and the life is in the blood. I gave My Son for you. Do not fear. I am on your side, no matter what you have done, it is time for you to shake off Satan’s chains and declare that you have been ransomed!

Pray based on the ransom, not on your merits. If you are praying for healing or provision and basing it on how well you are keeping My Word, that will put a stumbling block in the way of your faith and trust in My answer. But if you are keeping your eyes on Jesus and what He did for you, then you can point out to Me, “Deliver me from going down to the pit, I have found a ransom; let my flesh become fresher than in youth, let me return to the days of my youthful vigor!” Then you will pray to Me, and I will accept you, that you may see My face with joy, and I will restore My righteousness to you. Job 33:24-26. If you confess your sins, I am faith and just to forgive your sins and cleanse you of all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9. Why? I have found a ransom for you, and His Name is Jesus. And there is no other name given among men by which you must be saved. And when you walk in that light, the light of life, His Blood continually cleanses you of all sin. Why? It is an eternal redemption. His Blood speaks and it speaks mercy, grace, and redemption.

“Come now, and let us reason together,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are as scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they will be like wool.” Isaiah 1:18. Why? I have found a ransom. Isn’t it time you washed your robes and made them white in the Blood of the Lamb? Revelation 7:14.

I have stooped to make you great. I rent the heavens and came down. My strong arm drew you out of many waters and took you to a wide and open place, overflowing with abundance. Will you declare that? Will you sing it with David? Will your heart sing with him, “I love You, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.” Psalm 18:1-3.

And have you never read about the Holy Highway on which the redeemed walk? “And the ransomed of the LORD will return and come with joyful shouting to Zion, with everlasting joy upon their heads. They will find gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.” Isaiah 35:10; Isaiah 51:11. You are the ransomed of the LORD, do you really know that? If you do, you can tell. How? You will singing and shouting for joy, for you are on your way to Zion. In fact you are already there. “But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels in festal gathering, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks better than the blood of Abel.” Hebrews 12:22-24. “Then the LORD will create over the whole area of Mount Zion and over her assemblies (convocations) a cloud by day, even smoke, and the brightness of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory will be a canopy. There will be a shelter (sukkah, tabernacle) to give shade from the heat by day, and refuge and a secret place from the storm and the rain.” Isaiah 4:5-6. You abide in the secret place in Jesus.

I love you. I stooped to make you great. You are seated with Christ in Heaven. I have lifted you off the ash heap (the condemnation: dust you are and to dust you shall return) and seated you with the Prince of Peace. All because He went to the dust of death for you and tasted death on your behalf. Psalm 22:15; Hebrews 2:9.
