Psalms 34:1-8 for me stands as a clarion call for each of us to have an ongoing connection to the Lord. Each day we are going to face something.
It’s been said that from the time we awake until we lie down something is going to come against us. But though trouble may come against us as a
mighty storm we are called to be in step with the Lord.
To be in step means to bless the Lord at all times no matter what we are going through. For whatever valley we are going through or what mountain may stand before us we are to boast not of ourselves as to overcoming but to boast in the Lord.
As we call on him He has promised to answer. To answer on our behalf to deliver us from our fears. We are to exalt his name not just by our words but by our daily actions. For with each step of every day we look to Him knowing that he is with us.
We have that blessed assurance that no cry or request is unheard and that his very angel encamps around those who fear
him for He will deliver them. What joy there is to taste and see that the Lord is good, and happy are those who take refuge in him.
