Jesus our Deliverer – Are You in Bondage?

There’s so much to say about this whether it be a sickness, alcohol, drugs, sex, food or whatever the case may be; God can deliver us from any addiction likewise sin IF we ask him.

Psalms 34:17 The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

Psalms 107:6 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.

2 Samuel 22:2 And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;

I personally know about Jesus as our Deliverer because He delivered me in 2004 from cancer, alcohol, and cigarettes! You see a lot of people will steer you towards all kinds of counselors when you are dealing with an issue when all we need to do is take it to the Lord! He created us and knows our every need if only we take it to Him and believe (Matthew 6:33). Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s Ok to speak with others, but when someone needs, delivering that’s a bondage that only God can break. (Galatians 5:1) When we try on our own without God’s help, we can fail. Whether it be in a few months or years we usually are only strong for a while. (2 Corinthians 13:9) Taking it to Jesus have first is the answer and let him line up people to encourage you along the way. (1 Thessalonians 5:11)

As I was set free and delivered, I can’t help but tell others about Jesus! All I can say is friends he is real there’s no doubt about it.  He touched me and made me whole. (Proverbs 4:20-22) Being diagnosed with cancer I knew I only had one option; that was to take it to the Lord and when I did, wow! He not only healed me He Delivered me of addictions as well. I repented of my sins to Jesus; moreover, He healed me! Not instantly it was a process for everything except drinking and smoking that He did instantly!

During that time of diagnoses and recovery, that’s exactly when He began to draw me closer to Him. Considering at that phase of my life I only knew of Him; I wasn’t living for him, moreover certainly didn’t expect to be delivered from drinking further smoking. But apparently that’s how He works when He heals you – He heals all of you! As I mentioned, I began to grow closer to Him during my down time of taking Chemo and radiation; I started to feel more of His presence consequently the more healing I received. I had already been through another trauma of losing my Husband just five years earlier to cancer, therefore, left raising three children on my own. So you can imagine my state of being. I felt like a semi truck had run over me! But with God’s strength, I was able to get through it all, whereas without Him I was stuck in that trauma. The trauma of losing my husband, the pain I felt for my kids losing their father, a broken heart, anger and a hard heart. I just couldn’t move forward with all that baggage. Therefore, I tend to believe maybe all that stress caused my illness and when it happened, I also tend to think that God said “I am allowing her to go through this as it will draw her closer to me, ultimately move her forward in life” boy did it ever! It was one of those things that were so bad, but so right for me. Changed!

Thus, here I am 11 years later healed, free from distress, changed, saved and sharing my testimony. Because He lives, He heals, and He Delivers! Thank you, Jesus!

What he does for one person He will do for another because Romans  2:11 says “For there is no respect of persons with God”. Therefore, if He delivered me, He would surely do for you too. Just ask Him.

God bless you and thanks for taking the time to read this. My prayers are with you!
