Are you going through hard times right now? Does it seem like everything around you has fallen apart and God doesn’t care? Does it seem like He is mad at you? Well…that is NOT what the Bible declares!
The Lord is our refuge and strength! He is our deliverer! Many have this mindset that God is out to get them. That he is sitting up in heaven, angry-ready to crush anyone who messes up in the slightest. That He is a cosmic kill-joy. That He is putting sickness and disease on people to teach them a lesson. That He will takes things away from us and make our lives miserable and we don’t live the dogmatic-religious lifestyle…I’m here to tell you that is all false!!
God is our deliverer! He is our healer! He is our redeemer! He is our saviour! He is before all things and in Him all things hold together! Praise God!! He is not here to condemn you but rather by His son Jesus Christ dying for you on the cross, taking your sins forever (Heb 8:12), he has made you righteous! He is your provision and longs to care for you and provide for you…all you have to do is call on Him! Psalm 34 shows us all the saving power of our Lord and God!! Let us walk in His provision, His protection and His deliverance today!!! Glory to God!!
Psalm 34-(NIV 84)
1 I will extol the Lord at all times;
his praise will always be on my lips..
3 Glorify the Lord with me;
let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
HE DELIVERED ME FROM ALL MY FEARS.
5 Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
6 This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
HE SAVED HIM OUT OF ALL HIS TROUBLES.
7 The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
and HE DELIVERS THEM.
8 Taste and see that the Lord is good;
BLESSED IS THE ONE WHO TAKES REFUGE IN HIM.
9 Fear the Lord, you his holy people,
for THOSE WHO FEAR (REVERENCE) HIM LACK NOTHING…
15 The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
and HIS EARS ARE ATTENTIVE TO THEIR CRY;
16 but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
to blot out their name from the earth.
17 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;
HE DELIVERS THEM FROM ALL THEIR TROUBLES.
18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and SAVES THOSE WHO ARE CRUSHED IN SPIRIT.
19 The righteous person may have many troubles,
but the LORD DELIVERS THEM FROM THEM ALL;
20 HE PROTECTS ALL HIS BONES,
not one of them will be broken.
21 Evil will slay the wicked;
THE FOES OF THE RIGHTEOUS WILL BE CONDEMNED.
22 THE LORD WILL RESCUE HIS SERVANTS;
no one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.
