THE LORD WILL DELIVER YOU March 19 Thursday, 2015
“The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished”. 2 Peter 2:9 (KJV)
The God we serve is a faithful God. He protects His people. He knows how to deliver them out of troubles. The Psalmist declares: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1, KJV). In other words, He never jumps ship. He does not abandon His own. In times of need and difficulty, the Almighty God is right there with you. He will never leave you or forsake you. Rest in Him. He will step into a situation and bring you out. For it is written that “[. . .] the just shall come out of trouble” (Proverbs 12:13, KJV). You will make it out!
The problem with most believers is that they are not alert. They are not cautious. They are not watchful. This is why the scriptures encourage us to “walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise” (Ephesians 5:15, KJV). The believer who walks circumspectly will call upon God to deliver him from evil.
We are not completely immune from evil, but God has promised to deliver us. “The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles” (Psalm 34:17, KJV). God is not a man that He should lie, nor is He the son of man that He should repent. If He has said it, He will do it. If He has spoken it, He will bring it to pass. If the devil thinks he will kill you, he is wasting his time. There is a prophecy from God over your life. That prophecy must come to pass.
Today, I speak protection over you. The devil will not terminate your life. You will not fall under terrorists’ attacks. You will fulfil your years. Whatever bondage the enemy has packaged in your life has been destroyed. Where doors have been shut, they will open for you. Where you have failed before, you will now succeed. The grace of God will speak on your behalf. The grace of God will overrule on your behalf.
