“I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.”
When David prayed, his fears were silenced. Just like him, we can exchange our fears for peace. When we need delivered from our fears, we must realize there is a process to our deliverance. We seek him. He hears us, and then He delivers us.
We cannot be delivered from our fears without Him first hearing our cry, and He cannot hear our plea if we do not first seek Him for help. It all starts with seeking Him. There is no deliverance if we do not do our part of seeking Him.
There are several examples in this chapter alone that can encourage us to seek the Lord’s deliverance from the circumstances and troubles of our lives.
“This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.”
“The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.”
His ears are always open to our cries for help. There is no busy signal or need to stand in line and wait. He is always there.
Job tells us that our days will be full of trouble as we live for the Lord. We will suffer persecution; but we can be thankful that though our afflictions are many, the Lord is there to deliver us from every one.
“Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.”
