Our God saves!

Whether it’s parting the Red Sea so His people could escape their oppressors on dry ground while their enemies who pursued them were swallowed up by the waters; Exodus 14

Or granting Gideon’s throng of 300 victory over the Midianite Army whose number was as innumerable as sand on the seashore; Judges 7

Or causing His people to triumph in battle over Moab and Ammon, not by lifting a sword but by lifting up praises to Him;  2 Chronicles 20

Or covering me from injury when my relatively small Mazda Demio was hit from behind by a truck on Waterloo Rd. in Kingston Jamaica;

Our God saves!

Our battles may be different, in life we will all encounter seasons of difficulties, we will face trials that seem to exceed our strength, but how comforting it is to know that God is unchanging; He is the same yesterday today and forever and His compassion fails not! (Hebrew 13:8, Lam. 3:22)

His promises to Israel stand for all His children, those who believe in the name and work of Jesus (John 1:12), to us He declares;

“…Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;

I have summoned you by name; you are mine.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;

and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.

When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

For I am the Lord your God… Is 43:1-3

The almighty God declares that He will deliver those who love Him, He will be with us in trouble, He is our rock, our fortress, our stronghold, our deliverer our shield! (Ps 91:14-15, Ps 144:1-2)

Whatever challenges you may face, call upon God, and stand still and watch Him work His mighty power on your behalf!
