Good afternoon! Grace and peace to you from God ourFather and the Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 1v7
Today we are testing ourselves with God's definition of "delivers".
Psalm 41v1 Blessed is he who has regard for the weak; the LORD delivers him in times of trouble.
There are many good people in the world that have regard for the weak and help people out of their own works without knowing the LORD. We have to have a relationship with God before we can learn to help people in the right way, and that is God's way. First we have o realize we are all weak without Him so that pretty much covers everyone including ourselves needs help.The Lord delivers us because out of the relationship we have with Him overflows love for the weak. The love of God comes first to us so He can love others through us. His love is much greater than our love we can have for one another, His love never fails. He delivers us in times of trouble because He loves the weak through us. He sustains us in our sick bed and restores us out of it. The Lord will protect us and preserve our life, he will bless us and not surrender us to our enemies. When we sin we know we are forgiven through the Holy Spirit, we know God has mercy on us because we have received His love and mercy, we know we are healed from the peace and comfort we receive from His love. We know He is pleased with us because our enemy does not triumph over us. In our integrity He upholds us. We know He has set us in His presence forever. When we are persecuted and feel discouraged He blesses us and lifts us up with His peace and He delivers us from evil. (Matthew 5v11 "Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.") There is nothing in this world Lord that you will not deliver us from, if we trust and rest in you. Read Psalm 41 I love everyone with the love Christ gives me for you!
