Saved and Delivered!
2Cr 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
2Cr 5:17 Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
I'm glad that I serve a God who specializes in the impossible! In our church lately, God has been sending us hurting people and helpless people with problems bigger than what they can solve on their own. Just today a man came requesting prayer to be delivered from alcohol addiction. I'll be honest, I can't set a man free from alcohol, BUT JESUS CAN!!!
I believe that nothing is impossible to God. He can make drunkards sober and drug addicts clean. He can wipe the slate clean for the murderer and adulterer. He can set free the porn addict and the anorexic. He can give purpose and direction to those who have neither! HE IS AWESOME! HE'S MY SAVIOR; AND HE'S MY LORD!!!
I ask you, "Are you saved and delivered?" Because whom the Son sets free is free indeed! We used to sing this song at my old church that said, "He is able to Deliver Thee." And He is! No matter how low you've gotten, or how desperate your situation has become, "THE WEAPONS OF OUR WARFARE ARE NOT CARNAL BUT MIGHTY!"
God wants to deliver you! All you have to do is claim it! Speak to that which is not as if it is, because it is (Hebrews 11:1)! Say to that mountain in faith, "REMOVE!!!" And it will be done (Matthew 21:21). Claim it by faith! And watch God go to bat for you this week!
