“The Lord Heard and Delivered Me”

Key Verse

“I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.” Psalm 34:4

Text — Psalm 34:1-6


Most times we read bad news in newspapers, hear them on the radio, television or the internet. Some of these news and events may come through the wicked acts of people, accidents, hatred, disagreements, domestic violence or greed. Innocent people are sometimes victims of these. David had his own share of problems too. Though not reported in any newspapers, he tells in our Bible passage how the Lord delivered him from them all. The Lord surely cares about things that trouble us. He wants to deliver us from them.

As David escaped from the sword of Saul, he found himself in the enemy country. His testimony however is “I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.” (Psalm 3:4) There are great and precious promises in the Bible for friends of Jesus. Trust in the Lord at all times. He delivers from sin, sickness and Satan. He is the present Help in times of trouble. He will deliver you as you cry unto Him, and you shall magnify Him.
