The Lord Saves His Servants

The Lord Saves His Servants

The Lord is committed to those of us who follow Him and serve Him.  His Word testifies to this truth repeatedly.

The Lord redeems the soul of His servants, and none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned.  (Ps 34:22 NKJV)  This is just one of the Lord’s promises to His people.  NONE who trust in Him shall be condemned.

The poor can run to you because you are a fortress in times of trouble.  10 Everyone who honors your name can trust you, because you are faithful to all who depend on you.  (Ps 9:9-10 CEV)  Our God is a fortress in times of trouble.  He is faithful to ALL who depend upon Him.  God cannot lie.  (Tit 1:2)

. . . who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion . . .  (Ps 103:4 NIV)  Not only does the Lord redeem our lives from hell but He also crowns us with His love and compassion.  Praise the Lord!

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?  (Rom 8:31-32 ESV)  If God is on our side, but no one can succeed or gain victory over the Lord.  Since the Lord didn’t spare His own Son, it is certain that along with our salvation He freely gives us all that we need. 

We are blessed to serve a faithful and loving God. 

Drive Out All Fear

Drive Out All Fear

I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.  (Ps 34:4)

To grant us that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies, might serve Him without fear . . . (Lk 1:74)

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.  (1 Joh 4:18)

For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”  (Rom 8:15)

Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.  (Heb 2:14-15)

Fear does not come from God; it comes from hell.  Fear involves bondage and torment.  Christ came that we might have life and have it abundantly.  (Joh 10:10)  He has delivered us from all fear through His salvation. 

The Scriptures tell us that God did not give us a spirit of fear, but rather He gave us the Holy Spirit—who testifies to us that God is our Father!  Allow yourself to have an encounter with the powerful, never-ending, love of God, the Father!  Search out and meditate upon the many Bible verses that discuss God’s love for us.  God bless you.

Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.  (Rom 5:5)  God’s perfect love for each one of us actually drives out fear (1 Joh 4:18) so meditating upon and coming to an understanding of God’s unchanging love for you is crucial to living a good and abundant life.
