When filled with distress and overcome with fear: Psalm 130
In this Psalm 130 persecuted by Saul, David is running for his life. He is filled with fear, and is in great distress. Instead of letting fear dictate his next move, David does the opposite.
He does not allow fear to overcome him, and distress swallow him. He knows that is he makes the wrong move, this will be the end of him. In his distress, a moment of desperation, David turns his eyes to God!
To rescue him
When you are going through troubles, filled with distress, persecuted and fearful, do not let fear to overcome you, or distress swallow you. Place your trust in the Lord, set your eyes on the rescue plan that is bigger than you. A plan that will get you out of your struggles, and fill you up with hope.
He will never leave you, nor will he abandon you 🙌🏻
Our flesh fails, others fail us too, but God never does! That’s where my hope is anchored, and my trust stands!
Lord, hear my voice, let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy. You are the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and end, you are the first and the last, my healer, my rescue plan. I wait on you, and place my hope in you, rescue me out of distress, pull me out of my misery, I wait on you, I lift up my eyes up the Hills, this is where my help comes from. My help comes from the Lord maker of heaven and earth.
