Depending On The Deliverer

May 14, 2017 Speaker: Bryan Winchester Series: The Strength Of Weakness

Topic: suffering Verse: 2 Corinthians 1:8–1:11

Trinity Church Pastor/Elder, Bryan Winchester preaching "Depending On The Deliverer", part two of The Strength Of Weakness from 2 Corinthians 1:8-11.

Paul was one familiar with suffering that was so severe it drove him to despair of life itself. He knew that his suffering was to make him rely on God and not his own self-sufficiency. In this text we see Paul's weakness exposed, his dependence deepened and God's deliverance granted. It is foolish for us to trust in ourselves because the message of the Bible is that believers must not trust in our power, but trust in God's power. We must remember that God is the only true deliverer in an ultimate sense, using this for hope and strength as we undergo earthly suffering.
