The Lord Delivers on His Promises

"Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivers him out of them all.

He keeps all his bones: not one of them is broken. Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. The Lord redeems the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate (Psalm 34:19-22).

God's Children Will Have Many Adversities and Adversaries

Before you became a follower of Jesus, you may have believed that your problems would disappear and the world would love you, right? Wrong! God didn't promise us a world free of persecution, or problems, He promised us deliverance. God is Omniscient. He knew what His children would go through in this world; grief, loss, sickness, despair, friends and family turned enemies, loneliness etc., which is why He sent His Son Jesus (John 3:16). Jesus said, "If the world hate you, you know that it hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love his own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also (John 15:18-20). These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world (John 16:33).

God's Promise of Deliverance

God promised us deliverance from not some but all of our afflictions (Psalm 34:19). He protects all of our bones: not one of them is broken (vs20). Our enemies will be punished (vs21). Take refuge in Him; escape condemnation (vs22). Jesus wants us to be courageous and experience the peace that only He can give (John 16:33). Jesus' peace surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7). The peace Jesus gives is made possible because He conquered sin, death ..the world on the Cross. It is finished! (John 19:17-30).
