Praising YHVH Ga’al (the Lord my Redeemer) depicts a worshipper giving thanks and praise to her Rock and Redeemer surrounded by His promises and His heavenly hosts rejoicing in the redeemed.

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my [firm, impenetrable] Rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14 (AMPC)

“Let everyone give all their praise and thanks to the Lord! For here’s why-He’s better than anyone could ever imagine Yes, He’s always so loving and kind, and it never ends! So, go ahead-let everyone know it! Tell the world how He broke through And delivered you from the power of darkness and Has gathered us together from all over the world He has set us free to be His very own! So lift your hands and thank God for His marvelous kindness And for all His miracles of mercy for those He loves!” Psalm 107:1-3, 8 (TPT)

“But I have trusted and relied on and been confident in Your lovingkindness and faithfulness; My heart shall rejoice and delight in Your salvation.” Psalm 13:5 (AMP)

{hearing and sensing} “I delight in you!” As you worship the one True God, the heavens join in. Move in your blood-bought freedom. You are surrounded in His promises. He hears all the desires of your heart – your wishes. He is clothing you in tangible strength – contained energy – from the Lord of Hosts (YHVH Sabaoth), El Elyon (God Most High), El Aman (the Faithful God), YHVH Tsur Ga’al (Lord my strength my redeemer)!

A portion of the lyrics of Rick Pino’s My Romance are connected to this art piece: “Angels dance around You | The earth it sings about You | Open up the heavens, Lord, | Let your kingdom come to earth | My praises all surround You | My soul can’t dance without You | Open up the heavens Lord | Let your kingdom come to earth.”

There is a praise that comes from a pure and true heart that is trusting the Lord, even when everything is not as desired. The worshiper has chosen to praise and rejoice in the Lord instead of looking at the issues around. Her focus is on her Lord and Redeemer, and that focused praise has birthed confidence, hope, and a renewed love. It is that love for the Redeemer, and the adoration given to Him that changes everything else, even the worshiper.

The name of the silk in this image is Redeemed. The colors in it are fuchsia representing passion, storm representing cleansing, cranberry representing worth the ultimate price, and burgundy representing brought with a price.

Father, I ask that each person view Your heart in this art and see that You are worthy of honor, worship and adoration. May they see You and Your great love for them, love that is eternal and without end. And in that know that with Your love, also comes Your justice and Your joy into their lives. Know that He intensely loves you.
