The Overshadowing Personal Deliverance
"I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord." Jeremiah 1:8
God promised Jeremiah that He would deliver him personally - "Thy life will I give unto thee for a prey." That is all God promises His children. Wherever God sends us, He will guard our lives. Our personal property and possessions are a matter of indifference, we have to sit loosely to all those things; if we do not, there will be panic and heartbreak and distress. That is the inwardness of the overshadowing of personal deliverance.
The Sermon on the Mount indicates that when we are on Jesus Christ's errands, there is no time to stand up for ourselves. Jesus says, in effect, Do not be bothered with whether you are being justly dealt with or not. To look for justice is a sign of deflection from devotion to Him. Never look for justice in this world, but never cease to give it. If we look for justice, we will begin to grouse and to indulge in the discontent of self-pity - Why should I be treated like this? If we are devoted to Jesus Christ we have nothing to do with what we meet, whether it is just or unjust. Jesus says - Go steadily on with what I have told you to do and I will guard your life. If you try to guard it yourself, you remove yourself from My deliverance. The most devout among us become atheistic in this connection; we do not believe God, we enthrone common sense and tack the name of God on to it. We do lean to our own understanding, instead of trusting God with all our hearts.
There is an answer to this world of chaos, especially when chaos reigns like today. The Lord gave it to us, and there remains a blessing to those who root it out for their own life, He didn't leave you in the lerch, searching for what to do.
Beloved, you may have lived this only in part, dive in all the way. When our Lord said "do not worry", He meant every word of it, and He meant it in total, not leaving out any aspect you can think of, He is in control. As you do this, you will gather strength and knowledge and see the Lord move, it will encourage you to do it all the more.
