“In my desperation I Prayed, and the LORD listened: He saved me from all my troubles.” – Psalm 34:6 {NLT}

David is testifying to the LORD Delivering him from “all fears” {v4} and “out of all his troubles” {v6}, which he found himself in. As you look to encourage OTHERS, you will find the enemy uses “fear” and indeed “troubles” whether by others doing or our own or a combination of both, are not too much for God to deliver you and me from. What is so encouraging in this passage is that though David had chosen the way of fear rather than faith and had ended up in this place, yet the LORD demonstrates His loving-kindness and power in delivering OUT From “all” his fears {v4} and “all” his troubles. {v6}. He did not keep him from trouble but delivered him “out from all his troubles.” Take Hope in Him!

But look again at the phrase,”…and the LORD listened.”- Often we are lied to that our prayers don’t matter, they are not heard, they go no higher than the ceiling, that God is not listening..to you! Maybe He is listening to others, but not you, the lie to the mind says! But He is! If someone asks “has anything happened? you can confidently say based on His Word, “I had an Audience with the LORD, and He Listened to me!”

Take heart…hide His Word in your heart to encourage and build up your faith in Him and to be able to REACH out to others…with a “good” word in season, with this wonderful verse and allow the LORD to encourage you and through you to others…”And The LORD listened.”
