Deliverer

Good morning readers.

While on the bus this morning, I saw a gentleman reading the Bible, and I asked him what passage he was in; he said Psalm 34. So today I am going to share with you what today’s title is: attribute of God, our Deliverer.

Psalm 34:4 KJV
“I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.”

1. Delivery from Fear

What are you afraid of?? The past that reminds us of your failures, the present of what people may think of you, or the future and what is in store? God says don’t fear, instead to call upon him and he will deliver you.

Psalm 34:6 KJV
“This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.”

Psalm 34:17 KJV
“The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.”

2. Deliverer from trials.

This points to me personally in so many ways, but mostly in the fact that God saved me from my troubles. It could be through encouraging friends, random people in the subway, or just reading His word.

Psalm 34:7 KJV
“The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.”

3. Deliverer from loneliness

I faced this recently, last night to be specific. Being in college has been a change of pace for me and adjusting to the busy city I tend to feel alone and that when I panic and struggle. But reading this passage I am assured I am not alone.

Just in these passages alone, we have so much to be thankful for with this attribute of God. As I wrap up this morning’s study, I want to close with this verse and final thought.

Psalm 34:19 KJV
“Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.”

What are you struggling with? Fear, loneliness, or trials and afflictions. God is there for you and if you only look to him, trust him and ask him to help- he will answer and give relief.
