SONG OF DELIVERANCE
For The Lord is GOOD and His mercy endures forever! This past month, while laying hold of our greatest victory also came one of our greatest faith tests to date. As we have been seeking The Lord for His wisdom and spending time in His Word to receive revelation, we were prompted that many of you may also be in the midst of one of the biggest faith tests of your life. We want to encourage you today that our God surrounds you with songs of deliverance!
“You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.” Psalms 32:7 NIV
Another psalm that has been a source of great comfort and strength to us is Psalms 34. Seven times David specifically mentions how The Lord delivers, redeems and saves his life. We encourage you to read these verses out loud and meditate on these powerful promises (NKJV):
Verses 1-3 “I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make its boast in the LORD; The humble shall hear of it and be glad. Oh, magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together.” It’s vitally important to offer up the sacrifice of praise in times of trial.
Verses 4-5 “I sought the LORD, and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears. They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces were not ashamed.” As we keep our eyes focused on Jesus and His Word, we are filled with joy.
Verses 6-9 “This poor man cried out, and the LORD heard him, And saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them. Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Oh, fear (reverence) the LORD, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him.” When we choose to seek, revere and worship Him, we want for NOTHING!
Verse 15 “The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their cry.” Did you notice how many times David affirms that The Lord hears us when we pray? So cry out to Him today!
Verses 17-19 “The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles. The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD delivers him out of them ALL.”
Notice that many are the afflictions of the righteous. So we should not think it strange when we are facing “trials and tribulations.” According to this psalm, our first step to deliverance is PRAISE. Second, is to fervently SEEK HIM, look solely to Him and cry out to Him. He is our HELP in time of need! We reverence Him as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. As we honor His Word, He promises to HEAR US and DELIVER US!
So no matter how impossible the trial or challenge may seem, we can be full of hope. We can sing a new song to the Lord; a song of deliverance. Please check out Mylon’s praise and worship CDs to help you bless The Lord at all times. As you sow your precious seed this month, we are in agreement with you that as you seek Him, revere and worship Him, there is NO LACK in your life of any good thing! We may have pressure on every side but declare with us, “The Lord delivers us out of them all!”
We Love you and we are praying for you every day,
Mylon and Christi
