Psalms 107, 126
Focus Verse: Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and He delivered them from their distress. – Psalm 107:13
What is your affliction? What is your trouble?
For deliverance from it, cry to the Lord.
When surrounded by darkness, when in the shadow of death, when weighed down by guilt from sin, when overwhelmed by wrath, when in the face of danger…
Do as the Israelites did when Pharoah and his army was behind them and the Red Sea was before them.
Do as David did when he was being pursued by Saul.
Do as the three Hebrew boys did when they were thrown into a fiery furnace.
Do as Daniel did when he was in a lions’ den.
Do as Esther did when she was told that her people were in danger of being exterminated.
Cry to the Lord. And He will answer you and exchange the darkness for His light…give you life instead of death…replace guilt with grace…express joy instead of wrath…provide protection from every danger.
Do as the apostles did when they were caught in a furious storm.
Cry to the Lord. Save me, Lord; I am perishing. And He will save you from affliction…from storms…from sin…from death itself.
