August 17 – Judges 3

Great Deliverer
Judges 3

Text: And when the children of Israel cried unto the Lord , the Lord raised up a deliverer to the children of Israel, who delivered them, even Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb’s younger brother.
Judges 3:9 KJV

Learn and Apply: The children of Israel kept on turning away from the Lord, and after punishing them for a while, God in His mercy would raise a deliverer. First He raised Othniel, under whose leadership they had rest for 40 years. Later, God raised Ehud, under whom they had rest 80 years. But these men were mortal, and thus died. And again the children of Israel would go back to their sin.

Like the chikdren of Israel, we tend to fail God and get into trouble. Therefore, God in His great mercy sent Jesus the Great Deliverer, the One who never dies, the One who has delivered us from the power, presence, and pollution of sin, and sits at the right hand of God making intercession for us. And because of Jesus, we have overcome sin and the world and have found eternal rest for our souls.

Do you find yourself returning to sin again and again? Jesus died for you on the cross of Calvary to deliver you from your sin. Accept him today and let him give you eternal rest.

Pray: Thank you Father for your everlasting mercy. Thank you Jesus for you are the Great Deliverer. Help me to continue to abide in your word in Jesus name.
