Trials are inevitable but Victory is guaranteed
God proclaims here to DELIVER or SAVE us from adversity. For God to be a savior and reedemer there must be a situation from which to save. This explains why sometimes Christians hav to go through many trials in life. It almost seems unfair that others, especially those who dont know Him, dont seem to b experiencing the same trials.. It is because as Children of God, God chastens us as a father would his child.. Towards the end of this chapter God actually says, that he let his own people be insulted bevause they had abandoned their ways..
Something else amazing I hav come across in this chapter is that even before Christs sacrifice, God forgave the sins of his people, not because they offered sacrifices, but because ge loved them deeply. Infact, God mentions in yhis chapter how the blood and fat of animals did not even come near to the appeasment needed for them to be forgiven. God wiped their slate of these people, who were causing Himmuch pain and agony (as is mentioned in the chapter), to be clean again.. God is good is an understatement!
