Deliverance (Part 34)
Many times He delivered them.
Psalm 106:43 (NKJV)
He shall deliver you in six troubles, Yes, in seven no evil shall touch you.
Job 5:19 (NKJV)
God is limitless. He's abounding, surpassing, exceeding, unsearchable, unspeakable, unchanging, unsleeping, indescribable, indefatigable, perfect, everlasting and everywhere. He's behind, ahead and within us. Calling Himself, 'I AM,' is overwhelmingly precise.
God is superlative. When we describe anyone or anything as the best, greatest or most awesome, we're treading on thin ice. Nothing on earth can hold the weight of our misconceptions. Every bloated exaggeration is another crack crunching under our feet.*
God is replenishing. While we're on earth, He sets no maximum quota on how many times He'll help us. We can never reach the end of His mercy, kindness, compassion or forgiveness. We can never be too far gone for His delivery: 'Is the Lord's Arm too short?' (Numbers 11:23).
Therein, Satan's case called hopelessness is dismissed for insufficient evidence. So if the 'Accuser of our brethren' (Revelation 12:10) says you're guilty, tell him: 'You're not my Judge. And through the Blood of Jesus Christ, My Redeemer, I'm innocent of all charges.'
God's unlimited help is waiting for the asking, printed for the reading and given for the loving. 'For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life' (John 3:16).
'Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you' (Jeremiah 31:3).
'For He Himself has said, 'I will never leave you nor forsake you' ' (Hebrews 13:5).
'And lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age' (Matthew 28:20).
