He Has Delivered; He Will Deliver
He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and He will deliver us. On Him we have set our hope that He will continue to deliver us. – 2 Cor 1:10
There may be many trials before you, but there is an abundance of mercy ready to meet those trials. Troubles that you do not know yet, as well as repetitions of those you have experienced, you will certainly encounter, but the Lord will give you strength and will continue to deliver you. As the eyes gradually fail and the limbs grow weak and the infirmities of age creep over us, we are likely to be distressed, but our Lord will not forsake us. When severe sickness invades our earthly bodies and our pains multiply and intensify, we wonder how we will endure. As we consider our death, we wonder how we will be able to bear out our last hours. Be encouraged: He who has delivered and does deliver will continue to deliver. Even as the trial comes, the Lord will show you a way of escape.
He has delivered you; give Him your gratitude. He is delivering you; give Him your confidence. He will deliver you; give Him your joy, and begin now to praise Him for mercies that He has yet to show you and for grace that you have not yet experienced but that He will grant you in the future. – Spurgeon
