Remember to Call Him
Psalms 57:2 “I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.”
This week’s text comes from a time in David’s life when he truly had a problem. He was on the run and hiding in a cave from Saul, who happened to be his best friend’s father and the person out to kill him. Now, whom should he call? Well, he couldn’t call the police because the “chief of police” and, as a matter of fact, the “chief of everybody else” was the one out to kill him. The government couldn’t do a thing for him because it was the government that wanted him dead. The bottom line was this: he wasn’t just facing principalities but also political power. Yet somewhere down the line he remembered who had the ultimate power.
David remembered the One who could and would do anything necessary to deliver His child … Father God! And in that moment David proclaimed, “I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.” What David knew was that God was well able to do anything to solve his problem. And from that revelation, I see David’s statement, “I will cry” not just as a present proclamation but also as a prophetic one. I believe David’s prophesy to himself, his enemies, and the Devil was, “I will cry to God whenever I find myself in trouble. If that’s now, I will call him. If that’s down the road, I will call Him… because I know that I know that I know He will do whatever it takes to get me out of what I’m in.”
Now that’s the type of attitude God wants you to have—–that present and prophetic proclamation that gives you the boldness to tell your situation, circumstance, problem, pain, and plight that you will call on God whether you’re in trouble or whether you’re going to be in trouble. And because He hears you when you call, He will do whatever it takes to get you out of what you’re in. You see, when God delivers you “outside of the norm,” people call that “a Miracle.” But if the truth be told, for Him it’s an everyday thing. That’s just Him continually performing in that “all things for me” category.
So know that if He said He was going to be a Deliverer for you, your deliverance is coming. And if it defies all logic, science, and common knowledge, then that’s all the better, because in these days ahead, God will surely begin to show Himself strong in the lives and situations of believers. Where we did not see any way out, He will make a way out. Where all hope had been lost, restoration will occur for those who call on Him. He is ready, willing, and able to do whatever it takes to deliver His children. All His children have to do is remember to call Him!
