The Upward Look

“In my distress I called upon the LORD, And cried to my God for help; He heard my voice out of His temple, And my cry for help before Him came into His ears.” Psalm 18:6 NASB
David was in great distress as the perils of life were tormenting him. The evil and ungodly, who were all around him, were persecuting and pursuing him even to the point of attempting to kill him. David called out for help to God, his only hope. He prayed for God to deliver him. God in His heavenly temple heard David’s cry. David was confident that God would answer his plea for God hears the cries of His people.
Lord Jesus, I call to You and You provide the relief and strength I need to persevere. In my times of distress, troubles, and trials, You are my deliverer and my help.
