Description

Our Deliverer has come once, and He is coming again!

OUR DELIVERER

Our Deliverer is coming

With salvation in His wings

Our Deliverer is coming

Here to set His people free

Our Deliverer

READ PSALM 70

The theme of God as Deliverer is a common thread throughout scripture. The exiled Israelites in Egypt looked to the promise of being delivered from slavery. David, in Psalm 70 wrote, “Come quickly to me O God, You are my help and my deliverer, O Lord do not delay.”

A consistent hope towards the end of the Old Testament is that the Messiah will come to deliver His people. For those of us living after the Advent and life of Christ on earth, our confident hope and expectation is that Jesus will return again in glory - our deliverer has come once and He is coming again! The Apostle Paul expresses it this way:

He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us... - 2 Corinthians 1:10

Mac Powell, who wrote this song, says, I wanted to write a song that connects us with the saints of the past who faithfully waited for the Messiah to come, but also to recognize that we need to be delivered also, and that we wait expectantly for our deliverer, Jesus Christ, to come again.”

Prayer:

I thank you, Lord God, for delivering me from evil, from sin, from death itself. Help me to live in the freedom you have given me, and with the confidence that Jesus, my Deliverer will one day return.

Amen.
