God Delivers

11.5.17 / Series: How the Old Testament Tells Us about Jesus. Scripture: Exodus and Hebrews. Speakers: Brandon Ryan.

Hebrews 11:29, Exodus 13 & 14

  1. Faith trusts.
  2. Faith endures.
  3. God delivers!

Our heavenly Father sends us frequent troubles to try our faith. If our faith be worth anything, it will stand the test. Gilt is afraid of fire, but gold is not: the [ceramic] gem dreads to be touched by the diamond, but the true jewel fears no test. It is a poor faith which can only trust God when friends are true, the body full of health, and the business profitable; but that is true faith which holds by the Lord’s faithfulness when friends are gone, when the body is sick, when spirits are depressed, and the light of our Father’s countenance is hidden. A faith which can say, in the direst trouble, ‘Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him,’ is heaven-born faith.
