Have you ever found yourself in a situation where life has beaten you into a corner, and there isn’t anyone else you can turn to for help?
The psalmist cried out to the Lord in distress when he was hunted by his enemies. He knew God would deliver him into a “spacious place” (Psalm 118:5)–a safe, secure place–and while he is stressed, he isn’t afraid of these “mere mortals” because he has God, the most powerful ally, on his side (v. 6).
The “enemies” weathering us down may not take human form–it could be unemployment, ill-health, or broken relationships–but we can call to the Lord in our distress. He’s waiting and willing to defeat them, so we, like the psalmist, can “look in on triumph” (v. 7).
Today, won’t you give God a buzz with whatever’s weighing on your heart? He’s only a call away, ready and waiting to receive you.
