Calling, Delivering, Glorifying

And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

Psalm 50:15

Sometimes we get the idea that we shouldn’t call on the Lord when we are in trouble.  It is true that many people call on the Lord only when they are in trouble.  We know that we can and should call on the Lord at all times.  We shouldn’t wait until we are in trouble to call on Him.  The Bible tells us to “pray without ceasing”.  We should always be in a spirit of prayer.

But the time of trouble is one time that we should definitely be calling on the Lord.  This verse tells us that if we call on His name in our day of trouble, He will deliver us.  It is wonderful to serve a merciful God who hears and answers prayers!  Call on Him and He will answer.

The last part of the verse is something that we sometimes leave out.  “…and that shalt glorify me”.  When we call on Him and He delivers us from out of our troubles, we need to thank Him and glorify Him.  Sometimes when the Lord shows us kindness and delivers us from our trouble, we are quick to forget His goodness.  Let us always be thankful for all that He has done for us!
