It is a great thing to serve the Lord; walking in the light of God (Rom 13:12-14). Thank You Father for Your Son, Jesus Christ Who is indeed the Light of the whole World. Let all Glory, Honour, Adoration be ascribe unto you o Lord! Glorious God, we worship You, our Father in the highest.
Have Your way in our lives O! Lord. Teach us by Your Spirit to obey You, give us Your strength to accomplish all that is set before us, may the grace of God that knows no bound help us both now and forever, Amen.
Beloved of the Father, who so ever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be save (Rom 10:13). Profound salvation is coming to us today as we will call upon the Name of the Lord and surely our God will answer us in the Name of the Lord.
We are not going to mind our circumstances, we are not going to mind our situation, we are not going mind what our financial strength is now but we are going to make our request known to the God of our salvation and He will truly deliver us (Phil 4:6), and having done that, His peace that has no comparison; that passeth all understanding (vs.7) will be our portion in Jesus Name!
An Appeal; Deliverance
“And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.” Ps. 50:15
This is a promise indeed!
Here is an urgent occasion — “the day of trouble.” It is dark at noon on such a day, and every hour seems blacker than the one which came before it. Then is this promise in season: it is written for the cloudy day.
Here is condescending advice, “call upon me.” We ought not to need the exhortation: it should be our constant habit all the day and every day. What a mercy to have liberty to call upon God! What wisdom to make good use of it! How foolish to go running about to men! The Lord invites us to lay our case before Him, and surely we will not hesitate to do so.
Here is reassuring encouragement: “I will deliver thee.” Whatever the trouble may be, the Lord makes no exceptions, but promises full, sure, happy deliverance. He will Himself work out our deliverance by His own hand. We believe it, and the Lord honors faith.
Here is an ultimate result: “Thou shalt glorify me. Ah! that we will do most abundantly. When He has delivered us we will loudly praise Him; and as He is sure to do it, let us begin to glorify Him at once. And as we glorifies the Name of the Lord, He will keep the feet of the saint (1 Sam 2: 9) out of the snarl of the fowler.
Beloved, are ready for such an encounter with the Lord? He promised to watch over us, lest we dash our feet against a stone. O Lord, deliver me and my household, we cry unto Thee, let our cries come unto Thee, for we have other God except. Let the hope of your beloved one not go into despair o my God. Look with pity upon us now and prosper your servant. Pull us out from the net set before us, for Thou art my strength and we will surely glorify your name in the land of the living:
“Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for Thou art my strength.” Psalm 31:4
Our spiritual foes are of the serpent’s brood, and seek to ensnare us by subtlety. The prayer before us supposes the possibility of the believer being caught like a bird. So deftly does the fowler do his work, that simple ones are soon surrounded by the net. The text asks that even out of Satan’s meshes the captive one may be delivered; this is a proper petition, and one which can be granted: from between the jaws of the lion, and out of the belly of hell, can eternal love rescue the saint.
It may need a sharp pull to save a soul from the net of temptations, and a mighty pull to extricate a man from the snares of malicious cunning, but the Lord is equal to every emergency, and the most skilfully placed nets of the hunter shall never be able to hold His chosen ones. Woe unto those who are so clever at net laying; they who tempt others shall be destroyed themselves.
“For Thou art my strength.” What an inexpressible sweetness is to be found in these few words! How joyfully may we encounter toils, and how cheerfully may we endure sufferings, when we can lay hold upon celestial strength. Divine power will rend asunder all the toils of our enemies, confound their politics, and frustrate their knavish tricks; he is a happy man who has such matchless might engaged upon his side.
Our own strength would be of little service when embarrassed in the nets of base cunning, but the Lord’s strength is ever available; we have but to invoke it, and we shall find it near at hand. If by faith we are depending alone upon the strength of the mighty God of Israel, we may use our holy reliance as a plea in supplication.
“Lord, evermore Thy face we seek:
Tempted we are, and poor, and weak;
Keep us with lowly hearts, and meek.
Let us not fall. Let us not fall.”
Is that your plea this day? Surely the Lord will deliver you and made known His salvation to you. Lord look with pity upon us today and help our faith as you have promised us. crown our head with Your glory, and confound the enemies of our souls.
Let us rejoice in the joy of our salvation, let our lives be a living proof of your goodness, O! Lord in Jesus name we do pray.
Believe God, it is well with you and it shall be well in Jesus Name.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
