Throughout the Scriptures we learn that God saves His own, that God keeps those who have confidence in Him. In the following paragraphs we will talk a little about a passage from the book of Jeremiah, which shows us how God saves His people from wrong.
17 But I will deliver you in that day,” says the Lord, “and you shall not be given into the hand of the men of whom you are afraid.
18 For I will surely deliver you, and you shall not fall by the sword; but your life shall be as a prize to you, because you have put your trust in Me,” says the Lord.’ ”
God had spoken about the fall of Jerusalem through His prophet Jeremiah, even, this whole book is based on God correcting the people of Israel and the king not paying attention to the words of the Lord. Already in the verses that we have quoted, the fulfillment of the Word that God had given through the prophet Jeremiah was approaching, but there was a man called Ebed-melech to whom God made the promise that he would be delivered and not fall by the sword, but, why does God make this promise exclusively to that man? In chapter 38 of the same book we find that this man delivered the prophet Jeremiah from death in a certain way:
7 Now Ebed-Melech the Ethiopian, one of the eunuchs, who was in the king’s house, heard that they had put Jeremiah in the dungeon. When the king was sitting at the Gate of Benjamin,
8 Ebed-Melech went out of the king’s house and spoke to the king, saying:
9 “My lord the king, these men have done evil in all that they have done to Jeremiah the prophet, whom they have cast into the dungeon, and he is likely to die from hunger in the place where he is. For there is no more bread in the city.”
10 Then the king commanded Ebed-Melech the Ethiopian, saying, “Take from here thirty men with you, and lift Jeremiah the prophet out of the dungeon before he dies.”
Kindly writing to let you know i am blessed and touched by your sharing, it helps me to make the progress spiritual, Thank you
YES GOD WILL DELIVER AMEN
God will deliver you
The Lord God said to Jeremiah when he was chained in the dungeon by the Assyrians, which invaded his land:
“But I will deliver you in that day, says the Lord, and you shall not be given into the hand of the men of whom you are afraid.” Jeremiah 39:17
Some believers might be able to tell us about some bad situation from which the Lord God has delivered them. Really I could say that the Lord sent a messenger to help me when I was in a city train (the subway) some years ago:
I remember I was very distressed because a lot of people surrounded me on a day of transport workers’strike. I needed to get off the train when I arrived to my stop, but the doors did not open. People pushed me, then I was at the point of crying, when a strong guy forced the doors open.
When I got out I saw he was standing up at the side of the door. I was grateful to him and I gathered that the hand of the Lord had stepped in to protect me. So I could glorify our Lord and now I can say He is my refuge and my fortress.
The Lord God promised Jeremiah he would delivere him from the hand of the evil men he was afraid of. The Lord used Nebuzaradan, the captain of the Assyrian army, to help Jeremiah: he set Jeremiah free from his chains and he could go where he wanted.
This is the very story that more than one converted people could explain today: how the Lord came to them through the gospel or the words of some friend. They were chained to vices or a bad way of life, without faith or knowledge of God, but in their darkness of spirit they received light to see and their chains were loosed.
Now they are free people by the grace of God, new creatures cleansed by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
So we can entrust the Lord with all our difficulties or problems; he can and he wants to help us because He is our liberator, and we are his people.
May the name of Jesus be glorified for ever for the Glory of God the Father. Amen.
