“Call upon Me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify Me” (Psalm 50:15).
There are two ways of getting help in times of trouble or dilemma. The one is to go around to all your friends and family, and get disappointed, and then go to God at last. The other is to go to God first, and be amazed at His wisdom and direction. That is the shortcut. That is the easiest and fastest route. God can make our friends and family help afterwards, and work in their hearts too. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).
Out of all your troubles, the surest deliverance is from God Himself. Several times, we read, “David inquired of the Lord” (1 Samuel 23:2). In each case, the Lord gave him the direction and wisdom he needed and delivered him from the difficulty and from his enemies. He could write, “This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles” (Psalm 34:6).
Are you in some trouble today? Be like Asaph, who said, “In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord” (Psalm 77:2).
