Answer me when I call to you, my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; have mercy on me and hear my prayer. (Psalm 4 : 1)
David the psalmist, cries out to the Lord for deliverance from them who hate him; from them who want to turn his glory into shame. He cries out to God and tells Him that he needs an answer. He calls out to his righteous God and prays, “Give me relief from my distress, be merciful to me and hear my prayer.”
Our God is a prayer answering God and He is the one who brings relief in all our distresses. Every believer should, without fail, pray to the Lord, worship Him and meditate on His word, each day. This should be something we should never forget or ignore. If you seek deliverance, if you want a healing, if you want to feel God’s presence in your life continually, call out to him, cry to him for mercy and he will hear. Seek his face. He is a rewarder of those who seek him diligently. Find a time period in your daily schedule where you can spend quality quiet time with the Lord. For some it may be the early mornings, for some as they retire after a day's work. Of course we can pray and call out to him at any time of the day or night. And we can pray at all times, wherever we are; whether we are at home, whether we are at our workplace, or while travelling, We can pray and approach the throne of grace with confidence.
The Apostle Paul once said, "The Lord has delivered us from many perils, and He will deliver us again." Has not God answered your prayers in the past? He will do it again. Call out to him. He is a merciful God, a compassionate God; he will surely answer your prayers. Spend time in prayer, spend time in worship and spend time in meditation of the word and the Lord will bless you abundantly.
David was in several perilous situations and his righteous God delivered him. He is your righteous God too. He will give you relief from your distresses too. Praise his holy name.
