Best Verse: Psalm 49:15 “But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol, for He will receive me. Selah.”
So, if we are free from the power of Sheol, what is it? Sheol is a place of darkness where you are separated from God’s presence. Can you imagine? No contact with God? No light. No joy. No peace. No security.
Praise be to God that He delivers us from that. Through the power of the blood of Jesus, He has redeemed us, and He will receive us. Receive us where? In heaven! Our next place of dwelling, as a believer, is heaven. There we will dwell in eternal life with joy, peace and security.
Children want to be secure. They may not even be aware of that, but they do. They want to know where you are. They want to know Mom and Dad are nearby. They can do anything if they know you are close.
Oh listen, that’s how it is with us and God. We know God is near. We know He is close by. Teach your children that. When you can’t be there, He is always there. When they can’t see you, He sees them. When we can’t hear them, God can. That’s real security. That’s real joy.
Are you in a “sheol” right now? I don’t mean a real sheol. As a believer you can’t be there. But you may be in a dark place and feel God is absent. He’s not! Talk to Him. Let His light fill your situation and trust Him to see you through.
Father of light, I praise You for delivering me from Sheol. I thank You that I can rest assured of Your presence in my life and for eternity.
