“Truly my soul silently waits for God; From Him comes my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved.”
Psalms 62:1-2 NKJV
In today's Scripture let's look at the word salvation. That word salvation, is an amazing word which we need to understand it to its fullest meaning.
Most often the first thought that comes to mind concerning salvation, is that of being saved, brought into the Kingdom of God, part of the Family of God, through Christ's sacrifice on the cross.
Thank God for that! But it means so much more to us as believers!
Latch on to this! It means deliverance from danger or difficulty. Preservation from distraction or failure.
It speaks about our spiritual and material preservation. Deliverance from fear and danger as well as pardon, restoration, healing, wholeness and soundness in our spirit, soul and body!
It also means to be delivered (see Psalm 91) from pestilence, which includes serious sickness and disease, famine, earthquakes and other calamities. It means protected from sudden death that comes by the weapons of man. It promises you a long, satisfying life and deliverance from every kind of trouble that comes your way.
So whenever you see the words salvation, saved, delivered or deliverance think about all that it means to you as a child of God in covenant with Him.
Boldly declare, according to the Word of God, that you have been delivered from danger and all fear! Delivered from poverty, sickness and lack! Whatever God's Word says you have been saved and delivered from, be in agreement with it.
Thank you Jesus for all that you have done through your sacrifice!
