We worship God with our resources because He is our sure Deliverer.
From his anointment when he was about 15 until his old age, King David had a long and perilous journey through many dangers. To name a few: there were the lions and the bears, Goliath—the giant, Saul—the envious king, and Absalom—the overly ambitious son. For keeping him safe, David burst into praises, worshipping God as the Rock, the Fortress, and the Deliverer.
A missionary family in Madagascar has also experienced God’s miraculous protection. One early morning, the family of three, with a 9-month-old baby, together with some friends, started on a 12-hour road trip. By midday, after a good lunch, they set out immediately so they wouldn’t miss their meeting. Heading west, the sun began to set in front of them. Conversations became sparse, and, finally, the only noise was the snoring from the front passenger seat. The driver started feeling sleepy. He dozed off several times, but he was determined to reach their destination on time. He sped up. Then for a few seconds, he blacked out. A branch violently hit the front windscreen. The car was seriously damaged, but miraculously the occupants had only some minor bruises. The baby fell on the small foam mattress that the parents had bought the day before. Just a few meters from where the car stopped, children were playing soccer. They were shocked but not harmed. Later, everyone realized that the vehicle had passed perfectly between two trees. There were ditches on both sides of this road, except where the car had left the tarmac. The outcome could have been very different without the intervention of the Invisible Driver.
The God of David and of the missionary family is not less active today. Do you think that the Deliverer deserves our full worship? This week, through our tithe and regular offerings, called Promise, we can worship the Great Deliverer.
