God Has & Will Deliver Us!
2 Corinthians 1:10 Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver.
This week marks the resuming of where I left off on my fitness journey. I have been trying to get back into the race for over a year now, since my hysterectomy that knocked me off course last year. This season has not been easy, I lost muscle tone and gained weight back, I had hope to never find again. Last night as I was working out in my garage gym, Satan started to remind me how easy tricep dips use to be and how much smaller my waist was a year ago. As his lies begin bouncing around in my head, my heart quickly took over and reminded me of who I am. I am the child of God who delivered me from the grips of cervical cancer, (Psalm 18:19b He delivered me, because He delighted in me.) As I stood looking back at my reflection in my gym mirror, I was reminded how I was surrounded by flames in the fiery furnace. But my sweet Jesus not only stood with me in the furnace, He delivered me and kept me from being burned or even smelling like smoke when I was delivered from the grip of death, (Daniel 3:17, 25-27). Knowing that my God delivered me, not only has strengthen my faith, but has given me the greatest weapon to rebuke Satan, His Word, (2 Timothy 4:18 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). God has allowed this mountain before me to remain, so that I can climb it and show others, fitness is not a goal…but a life long journey we walk with Jesus daily.
Lord, thank You for reminding me last night, that my testimony of deliverance is the greatest weapon against Satan’s schemes and lies. You Lord did not deliver me or bring me this far to be defeated, but rather use my faith to overcome, as Christ did the world. I pray to remain in Your Word and be strengthen daily in my faith, in Jesus name I pray, Amen.
