Call For Help

by | Jan 4, 2024 | Vital Life Application Devotions

“The LORD hears his people when they call to him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles … he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. The righteous person faces many troubles, but the LORD comes to the rescue each time.”—Psalm 34:17–19

How do we react when facing difficulties or when we don’t see solutions? At times like these, many become discouraged, overwhelmed with anxiety and fear, or paralyzed by doubt and confusion. Instead of reactions like these, the Bible encourages us to call on God and pray! We see this pattern in David’s life. He faced many challenges, some brought on himself through bad choices. But there were times when he did everything right yet still faced difficulties. Ultimately through every situation, he realized he could call on God. David knew that God “hears His people when they call to Him for help.” In fact, the Bible promises He will rescue us “from all” problems. He always is by our side, ready to listen. These principles apply to you as an individual and to nations. On this National Day of Prayer in the United States, we are reminded to pray for our nation and our leaders. Pray that they would have God’s wisdom. Pray for an outpouring of the Spirit. Pray that we would experience His miracle-working power. Remember God’s promises. We can turn to Him in any situation. We can pray for ourselves as individuals, for our families, or our nation. In every situation, we can hope in Him. We can call on Him with confidence. The Bible promises that He will rescue us! He is faithful. We can count on Him.

Reflection Question: Write a prayer for your country’s leaders as well as your local leaders.
