Deliverance

I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears– Psalms 34:4. One of the major fears that we can be completely delivered from is the fear that God is not real. The fear of life simply ending without God can be excruciating and even horrifying; however, God can and will deliver us from this fear, for we are among those who have sought the Lord, we are among those whom He has heard, and we are among those whom He has delivered from all our fears. Praise God!” ~LMJ~

Where No Fear Was – Is, and Where Fear Was – Is No Longer

“Psalms 53:5 reads, There were they in great fear, where no fear was. Here we find that those who have not called upon God have great fear, where no fear was, because fear grows in and throughout the night for the fearful. It is God who delivers us from any and all fear, whether the fear is real or imaginary. Thankfully Psalms 34:4 states I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.” ~LMJ~

Psalms – Revealing Our Song in the Night

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

The Book of Psalms is filled with references and revelations about Jesus Christ, detailing his coming, his conflict with the Adversary, his resurrection, and his coming with salvation. For King David, Christ was his strength and lively hope, which gave him a spiritual song in the night.

Discovering Christ in the Scriptures also gives us today, thousands of years after David, a spiritual song in the night that emanates from the heart of God and is heard in our spiritual ears and comforts our inner souls.

The song replaces fears, encourages our endeavors to walk with God, exhorts our hearts in love, and comforts our lives with the peace of God in Christ in us.

Psalms 42:8 Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with {within} me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.

In the daytime God gives His children lovingkindness, and in the night His song can be in our hearts. David recalls that with his new song, which blessed him throughout his nights, he could pray to the God of his life.

In the seventy-seventh Psalm, the singer and Prophet Asaph wrote:

Psalms 77:6 – I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.

Asaph in Psalms 77 was troubled, but then, he remembers his God-given song in night and he became blessed within his own heart.

God gives His children a song of hope, a song of deliverance, a song of spiritual inspiration and within this song we will discover that Jesus Christ is our eternal song, our symphony who harmonizes our lives with the heart of God.

In Psalms 53:4-5 we find that those who have not called upon God have “great fear, where no fear was,” because fear grows in and throughout the night for the fearful. It is God who delivers us from any and all fear, whether the fear is real or imaginary. Thankfully Psalms 34:4 states “I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.”

To have fear is to have restraints upon our believing and receiving from God. Fear can imprison even worse than any physical prison, yet our God can deliver us from all fear as we continue looking to His healing Word and discover His love and our loving Savior Jesus Christ who gives to us a spiritual song of love that indeed will cast out all our fears and replace them with a song in the night.

I John 4:18a – There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear {itself} hath torment. . .

In Mark 14:26 we read “And when they {Jesus and his disciples} had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.” The timing of this hymn was one of the darkest and most fearful times in all of human history because Jesus was on his way to redeem humanity by giving his very life over to cruel tormentors and murderers on our behalf. But he and his disciples had a song in the night, which gave them strength ─ that same song is our song for it is having Jesus Christ in our hearts at all times throughout our days and nights. He is our song in the night, and God’s Word encourages us to be “teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord” (Colossians 3:16).

The hymn that Jesus sang in Luke is not recorded for us, yet there can be no doubt that our song in the night is written upon our hearts. When we recall our deliverance by the generous work of our Savior we will indeed know the composer, and enjoy the spiritual songs that we sing with grace in our hearts to the Lord, it is as wonderful as the hymn Jesus sang with his disciples. It is a song of thankfulness and praise with joy to know that Jesus Christ, the inspiration of “Our Song in the Night” is in our hearts.
