DELIVERANCE FROM TROUBLE
There may be times when trouble that is not of our own making comes upon us. God has a promise to us during such times, and He gives us instruction to prepare us to overcome it. This is found in Psalm 50:14-15. Verse 14 says, “Offer unto God thanksgiving, and pay thy vows unto the Most High.” This means to keep our heart inclined toward Him, giving thanks, and praising Him in all situations.
Psalm 149:6 tells us that praise (thanksgiving) is like a two-edged sword; it brings victory. Paying our vows is being obedient to His word.
So, then, what do we believers do in our time of trouble? Psalm 50:15 says, “Call upon me in the day of trouble. I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify Me.”
We are to call out to Him, rather than simply assuming that He will deliver us through it. Call out loud to Him. When He answers and brings you through it, He gets the glory for it. You should testify (tell others) how He got you through it. That is how He gets the glory. There is little to no glory if you keep quiet about it.
Warning: do not tell it in a way indicating that you got through it; that puts the glory on yourself and that is prideful. Give God all the praise for it.
He is your deliverer and your protector.
