God The Comforter - Bro. T. Stephen

My dear Brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.  The blessed word that God has given you for today is from the book of  Psalms 34:6,7 “This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him, and saved him from all his troubles. The Angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them”. People of God sometimes go through poverty and are afflicted. And in their affliction they cry unto the Lord for support. Especially the people of Israel cried unto the Lord whenever they were in captivity. The Lord heard their cry and delivered them.

“This poor man cried.” can also be referred to that of David himself. He was poor and afflicted much in spirit. Especially when he was chased by  Saul the king of Israel. He ran to Achish the king of Gath. But he was afraid of Achish. So he changed his behaviour, before them, “feigned madness ” in their hands. He scratched on the doors, of the gate, and let his saliva fall down on his beard. cast your care upon him and He will sustain you. He will not allow the righteous to be moved. Why have you brought this man to me?” Thus David is regarded as the poor man who was being chased by King Saul.  But his men recognized  him as the anointed king. So again to save his life he fled from there and escaped to the cave of Adullam.  When all his brothers and father’s house heard about it they went down there to meet him. Even though his life was in danger David was worried about his father and mother. So he requested the king of Moab to let them live with them all the time that David was in the strong hold of king Saul. He was in pain, great distress, and misery while he was running for his life. At that point of time he cried unto the Lord and God heard his cry and rescued him from all his troubles.  We see how God spared David from fighting King Saul.  Achish king of Gath tells David, “I have  not found evil in you since the day of your coming to me.”

Dear brothers and sisters thus God not only spared David’s   life but also saved his father and mother because he walked wisely in all his ways.  Having experienced much bitterness in his life David tells, that the angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him and delivers him from all his troubles. He makes God his confidence. God will be your confidence too if you rely on Him completely. Even in the most trying period of your life He is more than enough to solve all your problems. Therefore cast your care upon him and He will sustain you. He will not allow the righteous to be moved.

God bless you.


Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. We praise you because You spared the life of Your servant David. From a poor shepherd boy You rose him to that of a king. Therefore we praise You.  Thank You Lord for  being his confidence. Help all my children to totally put their trust in you.  Spare their life from destruction. May they  make  You the Lord of their life.  In Jesus name we pray.
