The God Who Delivers! by Gene McGuire July 29, 2011

“You are my help and my Deliver.” (Psalm 40:17b) 

COMMENT: Twenty-eight years ago I left the insurance industry suffering from depression. While at the lowest ebb of my life, I received Jesus as my Lord and Savior during a long- distance phone call from Ken Walker, my best friend. Weekly visits to a secular psychiatrist were part of my new routine. One day, in a conversation with my “shrink”, I told him that I had received Jesus as my Lord an Savior. He immediately “pooh-poohed” that idea and told me that I was using Jesus as a “crutch”. He indicated that this “Jesus phenomenon” was just an excuse for not taking total responsibility for my own life. I truly wish I knew then what I now know about the Lord. I would have told that gentleman that I truly do depend on Jesus because He is my Provider (Genesis 22:8), my Healer (Exodus 15:26), my Shepherd (Psalm 23:1-3), my Comforter (John 14:16) and much, much more! However my most important relationship with my God is the fact that He is my Savior. (Isaiah 43:11) I have a joy that knows no bounds; after this short life here on earth is over, I will spend eternity with Him in heaven. (By the way, a couple of years later I was led to a Christian practitioner who helped me overcome my malady.)
