Psalm 120: 1        GW

When I was in trouble, I cried out to the Lord, and he answered me.

The psalmist here has experience with the Lord, enough experience that he is likely confident that if he calls out to the Lord again, he will again receive an answer from God. This is a confidence we all need. Have you ever been in trouble, cried out to the Lord and received His answer? If you have, then you can draw on your own experience for the confidence that He will help you when next you call. For those without personal experience there is still a source of confidence. 1 Peter 10: 34 gives us that confidence, “Then Peter said, “Now I understand that God doesn’t play favorites.” In other words, what God has done for one, He will do for another. This is a foundational Biblical principle. Because God does not show favoritism, then any scripture in the Bible, any story or experience you find there is applicable to your life. You can appropriate any and all Bible promises, including this from today’s psalm, because they all belong to you. So, now you can have complete confidence that when you cry out to the Lord, He will answer you.
