“The Deliverance of God”
Friday, June 21.
“For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21 KJV)
There are times we faced difficulties in our lives. During these times, we get depressed and sad. We doubt whether God is able to deliver us from our sorrows. The problem is not with God. The problem is we do not understand how God deliver us.
When Paul wrote the letter from which our verse above comes from, Paul was in chains in a Roman prison. Bound in chains, he was not discouraged at all. PaulReading this letter to the church at Philippi closely, Paul was able to look beyond his circumstances. He rejoice in Christ. Paul was still in chains, but he rejoice countless number of people were being saved. The prison guards were saved. Other believers saw Paul examples and got the courage to proclaim Christ.
God delivers His people in peculiar ways.
Memory verse: Philippians 1:23.
“Before you ever get your problem, God has already got your deliverance planned” (Joyce Meyer).
