We all need to be delivered from something(s) in our lives and we become disillusioned if we think for a second that we’re not in need of deliverance. The real question is, what do you need to be delivered from? You see, deliverance is the action of being rescued or set free. Psalms 34:17 reminds us, “When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.” Crying out to God is an act of humility, desperation, and total concentration. It is a fervent expression of faith in God and trust in His goodness and power to act on your behalf. Crying out to God expresses our need to be healed, delivered, and restored. The good news is God’s promise, purpose, and provision for every Christian is a life of victory in Christ Jesus. Therefore, deliverance from sin, being rescued from trials, and escaping the influence of a world in control of the evil one derives only through Christ, the Son of God who has come and “has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true—even in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life” (1 John 5:19-20).
