We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about the hardships we suffered … We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life.
Does that sound familiar? Can you identify?
WHY did GOD allow this?
But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God…
If HE wants us relying on HIM,
then HE must be reliable, right?
He has delivered …
he will deliver us.
On him we have set our hope that
he will continue to deliver us, (all quotes from 2Cor 1:8-11 NIV)
DO you hear what I hear?
past, present, and future DELIVERANCE
HE cared, HE cares, HE always will care
HE WAS there, HE IS there, HE always will be there!
