God’s concern is that his people are being shaken in their faith—that they won’t trust him in their crises. Beloved, our worst sin is our unwillingness to believe he will do what he promised. And that offends him more than adultery, fornication, drug and alcohol abuse or any other sin of the flesh.
His Word says, “The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations” (2 Peter 2:9). “God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” (1 Corinthians 10:13).
These verses are either the gospel or they are lies. But if they’re the gospel, then we must stand on them. God wants us to be able to say, “Lord, if I die standing here, trusting you to see me through, then let me die in faith. Live or die, I’m yours.”
Let all the winds and waves of hell come at you. Let everything come at you. Our God said he is able—and he knows how to deliver you.
He intended that you and I have all joy, peace, victory and rest in our walk. He is looking for men and women who will stand up against what’s coming in this dark age—servants who will stand with a calm and a peace because Christ abides in them.
God so desires for you to come into such a place of trust. He wants you never again to fear, but to truly rest in his power and ability. He knows how to deliver you from all snares, trials and temptations—if you will but trust him.
