What we can hold on to when things get hard…


David was in serious trouble. Saul was tracking him down and to make matters worse, Achish recognized him (1 Samuel 10:21-23). He had no army at the time to fight so his back was against the wall. But in the midst of all those hopeless odds the Lord delivered him.

Achish let David go because he thought he was mad and Saul never managed to capture him. How David managed to survive all that is found in Psalm 34. I want to zone in on a few key scriptures;

“This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.”

Psalm 34:6

“When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their distress and troubles.”

Psalm 34:17

David called to God and He heard his cry and saved him out of all his troubles. That’s a truth we can hold on to through the most difficult of times.

We see this pattern and truth throughout the word.

“With my voice I cry to the Lord, and He hears and answers me out of His holy hill. Selah [pause and calmly think of that]”

Psalm 3:4

When you call the Lord will hear and answer you. Let your voice be heard when trouble comes. Lift up your voice to the Lord.

He wants to fight for you and He wants to help you through every trouble you face. The Lord will carry you through the storm like He did for David.

Bless you friends
