Often we experience troubles under great pressure far beyond our abilities. Why would God allow such things to happen to us? The Bible tells us:
“But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead.” 2 Corinthians 1:9b
One of the reasons God allows these things to happen to us is to bring us to the place where we do not rely on ourselves but ONLY on God.
To trust that even the toughest situations and most extreme situations is something only He can deliver us from.
So if you find yourself in tough, desperate situations, remember:
“He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us,…” 2 Corinthians 1:10
In this one verse we find the word deliver repeated three times. God desires to deliver us.
1. God will deliver us. The word deliver literally means to take one from the clutches of a strong power to bring him into the hands of a greater power. It means to be rescued. What ever situation the devil has you in – realize that God wants to deliver you from it.
2. He will deliver us again. No matter how many times you find yourself held captive by any power, situation or even death itself – remember He will deliver you again. And again and again, repeatedly.
3. He will continually deliver us. Paul makes the final point that God wants to, he desires to deliver us in all our situations. Don’t think that God’s deliverance is a one time event. The good news is His deliverance is timeless.
Much like the Gospel of Christ is not a one time experience but a timeless truth – God’s deliverance will be there each and every time.

Trying be strong for everyone is exhausting and stressful. Jesus, I turn to You for help. I don’t always have to be strong for everyone because I have You who is the true source of 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. Ps. 18:2
What is Love?
Last year, when I turned 39, I claimed this.
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
This year even months before I turned 40, the Lord has clearly revealed His awesome plan for me and my family.
To Your Name be all the glory!
