“Speedy Deliverance”.

Key Verse

“Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.” Psalm 31:2

Text — Psalm 31:1-5


A young boy was trapped in a river when the boat he was travelling in capsized. He could not swim and so was sinking to the river bed. Then he cried aloud and suddenly a young man standing at the bank of the river heard him and with a speed of light jumped into the river to rescue him and he was saved. If the boy kept quiet and refused to cry aloud, he would have drowned.

The way the young boy in our story was saved is how the Lord is ready to deliver you in times of trouble. The psalmist understood the concept of God’s deliverance by a speed of light and he cried unto God to deliver him speedily. If you, like the psalmist cry unto God in time of trouble and difficulty, He will deliver you without delay. Cultivate the attitude of praying to God always. The problem with many children is that they find it difficult to pray. You can only learn to pray by praying. God desires to hear your tiny voice speak to Him everyday. Answer will come speedily as you pray.
