The Lord Alone Delivers

Key Verse

“The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:” 2 Peter 2:9

Text — 2 Peter 2:7-9


The godly and the unjust live together on earth. They may be children of the same parents, but they serve two different masters. They are walking in two separate paths and will arrive at two different places. The godly child trusts God and overcomes the test from Satan but, the unjust child submits to Satan and does his will. The unjust child may enjoy the pleasure of sin for a long time but, the day of God’s punishment is very near.

The godly children are faced with many temptations. They are tested and troubled from left and right and from within and without. Satan plans to make them sin and put the name of Jesus to shame. But if they, trust God and refuse to yield to temptation, God will deliver and bless them.

Are you tempted to do wrong at school or at home; to lie, cheat, fight back or even to steal? You must resist Satan, reject his suggestions and ask the Saviour to help you. The test of Satan will always come to you, but the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations.
