“Rescue is about the power of God and how He is both awesome and all-powerful, and also personal, leaning in close to us and never being far away from us. It’s about how God is in control and is Almighty but also cares for us deeply and intimately, and God is always there to rescue us.”Rachel Panchal
How badly do we need to hear this? Some of us may even forget that we have a God that we can trust, that we can run to. Although this world is crumbling and falling apart, the Devil thinks he might have full control. But Jesus said
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me…” – Matthew 28:18Matthew 28:18
We can rest in that every day, God is in control and He constantly finds a way to rescue the lost. Sometimes we don’t see God’s actions and sometimes they are right under our noses. God uses His children to bring about His plan. It could be a stranger on the street that changes your heart today, it could be the person you least expect.
God works through mysterious ways but to identify them we need scripture.
When God saw our fallen and broken humanity He knew that He needed to do something. He could not watch us destroy ourselves, so He sent His Son to the rescue, to change our ways and to live as a Holy nation so that we may be renewed and that we may rise from the dead.
“The wages of sin is death…”Romans 6:23
This is why Christ had to be raised because He needed to defeat death so we could be rescued.
Thank you Rachel for your beautiful song. Truly enjoyed it and I cannot wait to hear more from you.
