In Distress?

  

  There is no situation that should distress you because God is an ever present help in time of trouble and He will never leave you comfortless or without a way to victory. 
   

In Distress   

To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm of David. Hear me when I call, O     God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have     mercy upon me, and hear my prayer. Psalm 4:1 (KJV)   

As Christians we know that the Lord hears and answers our prayer. David also     had the assurance that the God of his righteousness would, shama`,     hear with attention or interest, understand the language of his heart and     give heed to and consent to his request.   

And  this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing     according to his will, he heareth us: 1 John 5:14 (KJV)   

The  Psalmists’ experience during great distress, tsar, of narrow     straits, attacks of adversaries, foes, enemies and oppressors that were as     painful, worrisome and wearisome as a hard pebble in his shoe, had taught     him that he would be developed in character.   

This word, enlarged, rachab, teaches us that as we look to God in our     distress we will develop a wider (broader) perspective that will cause us     to come out of the restrictions and hindrances caused by our enemies and     bring us into broad or roomy pastures (one translation calls them “a large room”).   

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is     liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom). 2 Corinthians 3:17 (AMP)       

As believers we have first hand knowledge of being emancipated from all     bondage. Our liberty in Christ allows us to “walk through the valley     of death” and fear no evil (Psa. 23:4). We are not moved by our     situation or circumstance. We are not controlled by what we see. 

 Our confidence is the God of our righteousness and that He will always hear and     answer no matter how bleak and hopeless things appear to be.
