God Is Our Deliverer And No One Else.

Post number 7

In your righteousness, rescue me and deliver me; turn your ear to me and save me.

Psalm 71:2 (NIV)

One morning a friend called unexpectedly. She needed to vent about some things that were happening in her life. Although we had talked about these same issues for hours on several occasions, there still didn’t seem to be a dramatic change in her situation nor in her level of peace. As I began to offer advice, there was one lesson that stood out the most. It was the fact that our God deeply desires to personally deliver us. It sounds so simple until we are the ones on our knees, desperately crying out for him to intervene in our lives. The Bible is candid about the fact that we will all have many trials but we don’t have to despair. Psalms 34:19 says, “The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all.”

While it is true that the word deliver means to save, rescue, set-free, redeem and release; the goal of deliverance is not just for God to set us free. In Exodus 19:4, He says, “You have seen what I did to the Egyptians. You know how I carried you on eagle’s wings and brought you to myself.” Isn’t it wonderful to know that the purpose of deliverance is to bring us into a personal relationship with God? Only then will we find true freedom that will never be taken away.

I told her that during a stormy season in my life, I also tried to talk to anyone who would listen. But, in the midst of it all, I could hear God speak to my heart and invite me to tell him instead. Psalms 55:22 says, “Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.” I realized, regretfully, that I was casting my cares on others and not completely on God.

Only after I went into a deeper walk with the LORD, did I began to see things shift for the better in my life. I have no doubt that this was his plan all along. I am so overcome with gratitude that he didn’t allow me to depend on humans, who were only flesh and blood. He heard my prayers and offered himself to me. At Psalms 50:15, God says that after we call on him and he delivers us, then we will honor him. I have seen his mercy and blessings firsthand and I live to testify, to all who will listen, that God is good! Bring your troubles to him and he will be faithful. He’ll never let you down. Even if it seems as if nothing is happening, keep worshiping and praising him, eventually you will see what he was doing all along. Always remember that God is our deliverer and no one else.

  1. That is beautiful. And touched me. I am facing court in 2 days. God is the only one that can deliver me out of this. Cause I am going up against people that are higher than me. The government. If you have time please pray God will have it thrown out. In Jesus name.
    God Bless you.

  2. It was Moses who brought the children to the Red Sea but it was the Mighty Hand of the Most High who parted the sea and they sang the song of Moses the Lord is my strength and song and my salvation We can minister to those who are in need we have to let them know it is the power of the Lord to deliver them not us

  3. I’m at a crossroads in my life, where I feel like a failure and there was a time I began to drink wine coolers and crush up pills and drink them, not caring what the outcome was. I was a servant in the Lords Kingdom-diligent and dedicated and loyal, but experienced job problems in a way never before, racism and evil mistreatment, loss job, lived deeply in drug infested and impoverished neighborhood and lost home of 15 years, experiencing housing failures as a tenant in other folks property intense repair and inadequate heat and now unliveable sewage back up at current apartment, all moves within seven months. Im overwhlemed in financial debts and poor credit hx. and I cant rebound, i cant find employment, i cant find a descent place to live for self and 14 year old daughter and im a failure, i have some faith but my spirit is empty, my joy and smiles are empty, i know what it feels like to be dirty and unclean, my teeth are roting out, my hair has fallen out with bald patches that I cant repair, im in despair. I go to God, but Im here on this site writing my trials, God is far away from me and my family. i know others got it worser than me, I dont know why God has us going in these directions with these outcomes and evil doers thrive and maintain jobs and housing and luxuries of life, i never looked down on anyone, I need God to help me get back on my feeting so that I can rebuild at 45. I have grey hair i cant get rid of. And i have a life of troubles that i cant fix by myself.
