My Question is not Who, but When? The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

Like Paul, I have a sin that so easily besets me.  Unlike Paul, I often, enjoy it.

Like Paul, I have often cried out, even proclaimed the Lords deliverance:

~ “deliver us from this present evil world

~  “be delivered from the bondage of corruption

~  “the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work

Romans 8:2
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”

Like Paul, I know who delivers me, I do know who will set me free, and that I must be set free from the law of sin and death.

Like Paul, I cling to the words of the Lord:  for I am weak.

2 Corinthians 12:9
My Grace is sufficient for thee; for my strength is made perfect in weakness.

2 Timothy 4:18
King James Version (KJV)
And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

Shall deliver, … will preserve….. WONDERFUL….   How about my battle today?

2 Corinthians 1:10
King James Version (KJV)
Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;”

Unfortunately, deliverance is apparently an ongoing process, like sanctification, We are delivered, We are daily being delvered, We will be completely delivered at some point.

This saddens me.  I long for complete deliverence, complete submission, and total reliance on the Holy Spirit.

The Lord has a lot to do in my life.

  1. “We are delivered, We are daily being delvered, We will be completely delivered at some point.”

    I think it was David Jeremiah made a similar analogy about being saved.

    Saved from the penalty of sin when we are saved

    Saved in this life from the power of sin in our lives

    And ultimately saved from the very presence if sin in eternity.
