Tweet Day 258  “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.” (Psalm 34:17) it is the heritage of all of God’s children that God will hear them when they cry out. Crying out to God is not casual or superficial prayer, it is an intense plea for help, it is desperately reaching out to God from the depths of your troubles. God has promised to hear you and to deliver you from your troubles. So, don’t be afraid to cry out to God, to make your despair known to him. He loves you, he hears you, and is ready to deliver you out of all your troubles

Tweet Day 257 (Psalms 34:3) “Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.” David calls on us to glorify and exalt the Lord together. He is driven to praise God because his prayers have been answered. He sought the Lord and his fears are gone.  Don’t live with fear and anxiety, seek God with the certainty that not only has he answered your prayer in the past but that he will do it again today. So, find someone today to share the great things God has done for you. Tell them how you sought the Lord, how he answered your prayer and how he delivered you from your fears.

Tweet Day 255  “When I am in distress, I call to you, because you answer me.” (Psalms 86:7) Life can be filled with problems and trials that stretch your endurance and resolve. David faced many conflicts and challenges in his life. He wrote from personal experience about being in distress, about feeling hopeless and anxious. But David also learned what to do when he was distressed; he called out to God for help. If you are distressed over the issues you are facing in your life today call out to God for help. Thank God for being there for you and thank him for answering your call.

Tweet Day 254  “I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.” (Psalms 17:6) God hears your prayer, his ear is attuned to your call, like a mother is attentive the cry of her child.  When you are in the midst of your struggles you can often feel alone and it seems that God does not hear you. But be assured that God is always listening. He is always ready to answer when you call on him. You may have to persist in prayer and you always have to pray in faith, but God is always listening and is ready to answer when you call.

Tweet Day 253  “When I called, you answered me; you greatly emboldened me.” (Psalms 138:3) What a remarkable thing it is know that God not only hears your prayer but he answers your prayer.

Whatever you are facing today, call out to God in prayer, open up your heart to him and make your request known to him. God will answer, and with his answer will come strength and boldness. Not only will you be able to face your adversity with new confidence but you will overcome your adversity.

Tweet Day 252  “They celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.” David writes that God will be honored by one generation teaching the next generation about him, that they will tell of all the great deeds that God has done for his people.  He calls for celebration because God is abundantly good. He calls for joyful songs about the righteousness God. Have you celebrated God’s goodness yet today? Break out in joyful singing and praise God for his goodness to you and for his righteousness. Let your children hear you singing God’s praises and tell them of all the great things that God has done for all those who trust in him.

Tweet Day 251  “But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing the Lord’s praise, for he has been good to me.” (Psalm 13:5-6) The Psalmist explains why his heart rejoices; it is because he trusts in God’s unfailing love. God has been good to him so he will sing the Lord’s praise. God loves you and has saved you, and those are two great reasons to sing songs of praise. Rejoice in God’s unfailing love today and sing your own song of praise with joy the One who has saved you and has done so many great things for you.

Tweet Day 250  “In that day they will say, “Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the Lord, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.” (Isaiah 29:9) The prophet looks ahead to the redemption of God’s people and he hears them celebrating the Lord. They are recalling how he was their God, how they trusted in him and he saved them. They determined that because of God’s faithfulness they should rejoice and be glad in his salvation. Start your day by recalling how you have trusted in God and the many ways he saved you. It will help you conclude that you, too, should rejoice and be glad in what he has done for you.
