God’s Willingness to Deliver
Daily Devotional for January 13th
Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us: 2 Corinthians 1:10
The Holy Bible is filled with different forms of God’s touch of deliverance. Deliverance from tyranny and slavery, deliverance from sickness and disease, and deliverance from sin and Satan. God already has enough of a track record shown in His word that He is forever faithful to deliver all who call upon Him.
Some of us don’t have to look any further than our own salvation to see God’s delivering power. When some of us came unto the Lord, we were immediately delivered of drugs, alcohol and other deep and dark spiritual strongholds. There is a vast number of people who have been delivered from bondages like pornography, adultery and homosexuality.
If you notice, Paul uses the word deliver three different times in this one verse. The first time, he speaks of God’s willingness in Paul’s past troubles. Next, he speaks of the Lord’s present willingness to deliver. Finally, Paul reveals his own faith that the Lord will continue to deliver him in his future needs.
Why then do we doubt the Lord so much? Is it because the Lord has given us reason to? Obviously not. There should never be doubt in your heart concerning God’s willingness to deliver or set people free. This doubt is the devil’s greatest grip that keeps mankind enslaved. Take the chains of doubt from off of you today and believe God to deliver you in whatever trouble you are in. He will do just what He promised. He will deliver!
