To a child who, after secretly acquiring a cookie from the cookie jar without being seen, finds himself holding on with white knuckles to keep from plummeting from the kitchen counter to the cold hard floor far below, Mom may be a welcomed sight—a deliverer of sorts.
To a business man who has fallen on hard times and is facing certain financial ruin if he cannot somehow pay another round of bills, and survive the few weeks that lie between him and his next big contract, a rich uncle has the potential of becoming a great deliverer.
To a nation, such as our own, that is spiraling out of control civilly, economically, morally and spiritually, nothing could be more satisfying than the sudden entrance of a deliverer—someone who could orchestrate a fix before the inevitable dissolution of our beloved, blood bought republic.
Threatening situations with disastrous consequences are measured by the strength, knowledge, resources and abilities of those who experience them. Some situations would be threatening only to a child, while other developments can cause a nation to tremble. The strength of the threat determines the needed caliber of the deliverer. For some, Mom will suffice, while other deliverances will require more than a mere mortal. They are God sized dilemmas and will require a God sized Deliverer.
You should know that God has provided a one-size-fits-all Deliverer who is most commonly referred to as the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Through Him, mankind may have access to their Heavenly Father (God) who, because of Christ, makes Himself available to the child, the business man, and even the nation who is faced with catastrophic and damning situations that arise in the civil, economic, moral and spiritual realms. He is available on an individual basis to all who will come to Him by faith. He says, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3)”
