THE WORD FOR TODAY
2 Kings 13-15
2 Kings 13-15
2 Kings 13:5 5 Then the LORD gave Israel a deliverer, so that they escaped from under the hand of the Syrians; and the children of Israel dwelt in their tents as before.
I don’t know about you but every time I get into a tight spot I cry out to God. I am not afraid nor am I ashamed to ask God for His help.
Israel needed help because the Syrians were causing them great problems. Jehoahaz pleaded with Lord and read what happened, “The LORD gave Israel a deliverer.”
Galatians 4:4-5 says, “But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law to redeem those under the law.”
At just the right time God sent us a deliverer. His name is Jesus. He was given that name because would deliver people from their sins. He is our only hope. He is our only salvation. He is our Lord and Master, Maker and Friend. He is our alpha and omega. He is prince of peace. He is the lion of Judah. He is our bright and morning star. He is our mercies that are new every morning. He is light in the darkness of life. He is our life because HE Lives.
We are in that season building up to Resurrection Sunday…soon all eyes and hearts will be fixed on a Cross. But three days later we make and incredible discovery…HE isn’t dead…He is alive.
Our Redeemer Lives…Our deliverer is alive!!!
My redeemer lives and I am so very grateful…in Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
