GOD HEARS AND DELIVERS


Psalm 34:4


"I sought the Lord, and He answered me; he delivered me from all my fears." NIV


"I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears." KJV


As humans we tend to cry out to the Lord for help during bad times and we are bewildered and resentful if we don't get a noticeable answer right away. The Psalmist, David, said he sought the Lord, and He heard him. Seeking the Lord is the key here. It's not that we have to go hunting for Him, but we go to where He is. The Lord lives in the praises of His people and His name is our tower of safety. Seeking Him is remembering and acknowledging that our God is aware of our situation and He is in control, never leaving us nor forsaking us. What peace and hope this brings to us.


Heavenly Father, how humbled we are at our insistence that You respond to our needs when we feel You should. Forgive us, Lord, for forgetting that You already know what our needs are before we ask. We thank You that we can seek You by praise and the power of Your name to take care of all our needs. We glorify your name and ask you for these things in Jesus' name. Amen.

What a blessing, we have as believers in Christ, that we can reach out to our Almighty God and He will hear our prayers. God is so good to us sinners. Bless you Bobbie for such an inspirational message. Lloyd
