So many times, in the midst of trial we become bankrupt. Our souls overwhelmed, all resources exhausted. The situation we are facing, hopelessly impossible……..that may be true but even truer is what God says.
1 Thessalonians 1:10Amplified Bible (AMP)
10 And [how you] look forward to and await the coming of His Son from heaven, Whom He raised from the dead—Jesus, Who personally rescues and delivers us out of and from the wrath [bringing punishment] which is coming [upon the impenitent] and [a]draws us to Himself [[b]investing us with all the privileges and rewards of the new life in Christ, the Messiah].
Jesus personally rescues us! He, Himself! He doesn’t just pick us up out of our trial and set us back down where we need to be, and then goes on His way. He knows our names, our hearts and totally understands us. He knows exactly what we need and where we are purposed to go.
Did you catch that? Our Lord hears, when you cry He hears you. Furthermore, He acts. He delivers us out of ALL our distresses and troubles. God wants you, yes, you. No matter what He has to rescue you from, He wants you. He rescues you because you are wanted. Hallelujah!
What does this rescue look like?
Psalm 55:18Amplified Bible (AMP)
18 He has redeemed my life in peace from the battle that was against me [so that none came near me], for they were many who strove with me.
One method is, deliverence us from our own perspective and understanding of our trial. When we call Jesus into our circumstances, they may not immediately change but we do. He changes us. He can and He will redeem our lives. His rescue is turning our shattered souls, shatter relationships, shattered bodies from dispair to peace. That is Jesus’ idea of a redeemed life.
In those places that the trial has bankrupted us He invests in us! Our souls go from chaos to peace. Those trial moments that are filled with fear, anger, heartache are redeemed by His peace. Peace is one manifestation of His investment. There are many. He takes our little and gives us His greatness! He gives us His privileges and rewards. God never runs out or runs away.
God gives us perfect rescue……tailored to us by name, desire, and need by the Almighty, All Powerful, All knowing God who wants us! Who is actively pursuing us.
Today, let God give you rescue!
