“For we do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, of our trouble which came to us in Asia: that we were burdened beyond measure, above strength, so that we despaired even of life. Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead, who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us,”
II Corinthians 1:8-10 NKJV
Jesus name means “God saves” - he’s our deliver our salvation. We would often prefer God to be our preventer than Our deliverer, right? To prevent means that it won’t happen. Deliver means I’m in trouble and I need God.
The God of the Bible is most often presented as a deliver
Paul’s life is also a testimony as well.
I get it, it’s a different view from what we really want but it’s one that we must embrace.
So weather he’s our shield to protect and prevent or whether he’s our deliver one thing is for certain Hes all we need!!!
