A Biblical perspective on "temptation's we encounter" and "deliverance from what?"...

There's a greatness in God's Divine Grace that brings us Salvation. I enjoy living and writing about the riches of this great truth! The Bible teaches that God's Divine hand can have full sway of the believer's heart and life. So does the Holy Spirit! What a blessing from God! This full sway of the Spirit allows God to govern the way a believer... thinks, acts, and behaves. But, there's also another part of this greatness of the Divine presence of Christ. This part of God's Grace is every child of God's... anchor of hope. The Bible teaches that Christ's Almighty hand can deliver the believer from every adverse situation in life. God said so!

Here's why the Christian can stay steady in this present evil world that offers the child of God...nothing! Christ is exalted and has all power! Christ whose presence reigns from the Throneroom is invisible, but Christian's walk and live by faith in Him ...not by sight. A believer's security should lie in Christ...not only to save ...but to meet every need of your life. Christ not only saves and redeems the human soul ...He also will take the believer through every adverse situation in life...including temptation. God says so!

Ponder...note... and meditate the Biblical language in the following verses. It's rich and brings security to the heart of a believer. Most of glorifies, Christ! Yes, my brothers and sisters Christ's hand is upon every child of God in every situation in life. Glory! Don't let any man tell you otherwise. Glory to God!

2 Peter 2:9... The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations

1 Cor 10:13...There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

2 Tim 4:18...And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom:

Gal 1:3-4...and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

2 Tim 3:11...Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.

2 Tim 4:17-18...Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom:

Did you notice the language? It's what God does in the life of a believer! God deliver's! His hand is upon us! Christ is our strength and hope. Walk by faith..not by sight! Trust Christ! Lean on Christ! Cast your cares on Christ...He careth for you! Christ will give you victory! Christ will give you strength to endure! Aren't you glad you have Christ today! Glory! Divine Grace is what Christ does in our lives...not what we do!
