Save me?





Save me? Having recently passed through the fire of cancer diagnosis, surgery, treatment and recovery, I know what it is like to journey into the darkness and come out in the light. I remember getting the diagnosis and feeling totally emptied of all feeling. Was I going to die? I turned to God in prayer.


Think about it. Although I knew that God could save me if He wanted to, I was sure that He would get me through it no matter what the outcome. You could say He delivered me to the outcome He wanted for me?   

   

God’s Word tells us: “‘Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours of daylight? Anyone who walks in the daytime will not stumble, for they see by this world’s light.’” (John 12:27).


Asking God to save us out of the sorrows and troubles of this life makes more sense. God saved me out of cancer, not from it. Sorrows and dangers will continue to come in our lives. Asking to be saved from them makes no sense. These things have their merit and God knows they benefit us. The best we can hope for is deliverance. We ought to pray for nothing else.



“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.

Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34)
