Call and I Hear

2 Samuel 22:4-7 (VOICE) I call on the Eternal, who is worthy to be praised, and I have been rescued from my enemies. The waves of death surrounded me; the torrents of terror tugged at me. The sorrows of the grave tightly tangled me; the snares of death met me. In my time of need I called upon the Eternal One; I called to my True God for help. He heard my voice from His temple, and my cry came to His ears.

Beloved, whenever you call, I hear you, for I AM always listening. I AM YHVH Shema, the Lord who hears, and I AM keenly attuned to your voice. You never need to beg for me to respond, for I AM not cold nor distant and My ear is always inclined to your cries. 

I have a perspective that is broader than yours though, so how I respond may be different than what you hope or expect, but you can always trust My response comes from a place of love. So while I may not “rescue” you from a challenge, I will walk beside you through it and support you as you go. Trust that I can and will work all things for good. You are heard. You are seen. And you are loved. 

2 Samuel 22:1-7, 17-20 (VOICE) David: The Eternal is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; He is my True God, my stronghold in whom I take refuge, My strong shield, my horn that calls forth rescue, my tall-walled tower and strong refuge, My savior from violence. I call on the Eternal, who is worthy to be praised, and I have been rescued from my enemies. The waves of death surrounded me; the torrents of terror tugged at me. The sorrows of the grave tightly tangled me; the snares of death met me. In my time of need I called upon the Eternal One; I called to my True God for help. He heard my voice from His temple, and my cry came to His ears. He reached down from above me, He held me; He pulled me from the raging waters. He rescued me from my strong enemy and from all those who hated me, for they would have overwhelmed me. When my enemies came for me on the day of my destruction, the Eternal stepped in to support me. He led me out onto a broad plain; He delivered me because of His delight in me.
