Name of God - Jehovah-Palat: Deliverer
Daily Verse: He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me.
☆ Psalms 144:2 NIV
Let's Talk About it: Deliverance. It's a ministry that many shy from, few understand, and each and every one of us need as some point or another. And it's something that most, if not all, people in the Bible encountered and endured as well.
I can't help but think of my own deliverance when I see this name of God because I KNOW Him as my deliverer, Jehovah-Palat. He's delivered me from an incredible amount of disaster and pain. Some of which I brought on through my own choices and others of which I never asked to be a part of - generational curses that have plagued my namesake for decades.
Never the less, God was always with me, and incredibly patient with me as I questioned at times whether I even wanted deliverance. Could I be delivered? Could life actually be different? Could I live without using some form of substance to run from reality? Could I be free? Me?
The truth is a resounding YES to each of those questions. But it's not just for me, that God brought deliverance. He sent His only, perfect, Son to die so that each and every one of us can be free. Yes, you too, can be free. Free from addiction, feelings of shame and guilt, bad habits, pride, gossip, ANYTHING & EVERYTHING.
God is not partial to any man. He plays no favorites. So, what He did for me, He is willing and able to do for you. That's the Good News friend, Jesus delivered us! – Crystal
