Hi, I am Jeffrey Levinson with GOD TV and welcome to God Today. Today I would like to talk to you about Psalm 18. It is a Psalm of David and it talks about, in the versions of the Bible that you may have, “He is my rock, my refuge, to whom I run.” I am going to read you this psalm right now from a Hebrew translation and it is Psalm 18:7 is where it comes in the version I have. “When I am in distress, I call upon the Lord, yes. I cry out to my God. Out of His temple, He hears my voice and my cry comes before Him in His ears.”
You know, we all go through trials and tests and times. Maybe they are tests for us. Maybe, someone we love, someone we know is hurting, they need a healing and it behooves us to pray for them. It behooves us to go to God. Satan, the small devil as it were because Jesus won that battle, will try to get at you through others. Through others’ infirmity, through others’ strife. He tries to get to you and you cry out to the Lord and you run to the Lord, you run to the Rock. You cry about and pray, “Lord, hear my prayer, please. On behalf of this one I implore you, I pray to you, Lord. Heal this one. Lord, help me in my distress.” We all have some kinds of stress every now and then. And what do we do?
Can we heal it ourselves? No. Can we fix it ourselves? Well, If we could we wouldn’t need God. But there is a God and we do need Him. You cry out to Him and He hears you and He will come. And He will, even when you are bereft of strength, He will give you the strength to continue. Even when you need a healing, He will touch you and heal you. When others need a healing He will touch them because you prayed. I implore you right now, friends, even if you know Him, you start every day in prayer. That when you are feeling low, you will reach for the God on high that will hear you praying, and come to you, and help you, and give you strength.
Let me pray for you right now. If you are going through something, if there is a darkness chasing you, if there is something happening to a loved one or a friend, and you want to lift them up and you are interceding, let me pray that the Lord would hear your voice. He would hear your prayer. He would come unto you and give you strength. In Jesus’ mighty name. He is our rock and our salvation. He hears you from His holy temple and He comes unto you if you but pray.
