“Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,”
Galatians 1:3-4 NKJV
Have you ever heard a christian say something like ‘well this sickness is just my burden to carry’? Many believers have this mentality. They believe God is able to heal, but they don’t believe it’s always His will on this side of heaven.
The Word of God must be our sole authority in life, not our opinion. This verse clearly tells us that Jesus wants to deliver us from THIS PRESENT EVIL AGE! We’re not just saved from hell to go to heaven. Jesus wants us experience the fullness of what he died to give us.
It is erroneous to believe that once we are saved, life will never throw difficulties at us again. You only need to look at your own life to know that. But know this, the Lord is NEVER the source of these troubles. Instead, He is our Saviour! The whole point in being a Saviour is to rescue those who are in trouble.
Maybe you are currently going through a storm. It could be a relationship breakdown, mental turmoil or physical sickness. Today, the Lord has a word for you;
‘I want to deliver you from this PRESENT evil age!’
