Delivered from Fear

Here is a word for you from the Word

Audio-SpeakerListen To Derek!

Psalm 34:4-5

I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.     NIV

     That’s the testimony of personal experience. It’s not theory, it’s not theology, it’s not even just a creed. It’s the testimony of a man who was in a terribly difficult and dangerous situation. He turned to the Lord, he sought the Lord in prayer and his testimony is, “The Lord answered me and delivered me from all my fears.”

     Are you oppressed with fear? I suppose the majority of people in our contemporary culture have some kind of fear that gnaws at them, that takes away their peace. Why not try David’s remedy? Why not seek the Lord, pray to Him, and ask Him to deliver you from all your fears?

     Then David goes on to say, “Those who look to Him [the Lord] are radiant, their faces are never covered with shame.” There’s a deep principle there – that whether we look to the light or the dark we will reflect what we are looking at. If we look to the darkness we’ll be somber and dark, but if we look upwards to the Lord, who is the light, our faces will become radiant with the Lord’s light. And the Scripture says, “We’ll never be ashamed, we’ll never be disappointed. The Lord will never let us down.”
