He Will Deliver Us

"For we do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, of the affliction we experienced in Asia. For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead. He delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again. You also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessings granted us through the prayers of many."

2 Corinthians 1: 8-11

He delivered us...
He will deliver us...
He will deliver us again...

This is the ultimate assurance and hope of a Christian. God has delivered in the past, he is delivering us now, and he will surely deliver us again. That's my only hope. Thanks be to God!
