Quick Deliverance: A Cry for Help in Psalm 70
Psalm 70 is a plea for quick deliverance from an enemy who seeks to harm the psalmist. It is a cry for help in times of trouble, where the author asks God to hurry and save him. The psalmist’s fear is evident in his words as he pleads with God to deliver him from those who seek to hurt him.
“Hasten, O God, to save me; come quickly, Lord, to help me. May those who want to take my life be put to shame and confusion; may all who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace.”
The author begins this psalm by addressing God directly and asking for His speedy action. He recognizes that he cannot save himself and that only through the intervention of God will he be delivered from his enemies.
It is important during times of trouble not only to pray but also specifically ask God for what we need. The psalmist acknowledges that he needs help urgently and does not delay in asking for it.
Furthermore, praying directly like this shows a recognition of our own smallness before greatness like His glory’s image. When we recognize our need for something bigger than us—God might supply it beyond our comprehension or expectations.
The request isn’t just so personal—the victory itself should make everyone around name turn their head over it—a true sign of how incredible your situation was—and how you had FAITH against all odd
“But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who long for your saving help always say ‘The Lord is great!’ But as or me I am poor and needy; come quickly to help me, O God.”
The author acknowledges that while he himself is poor and in need, those who seek God are joyful and glad. His request for deliverance is not only for his benefit but also for the sake of others who trust in God.
The writer intertwines his personal cry, with a plea to all whose heart beats to receive such similar assistance—to glorify Him. You can recruit more people in joining you by understanding that your victory has a way of soliciting evangelical views.
If you knew what going through challenges provided you as an opportunity to share the Gospel—you would pray harder!
“But as for me, I am poor and needy; come quickly to me, O God. You are my help and my deliverer; Lord, do not delay.”
Once again, the author emphasizes his need for quick action from God. He declares that God is his helper and deliverer but asks Him not to delay in saving him.
It’s essential once again to repeat requests during prayer without feeling guilty or ashamed—but with faith because
6 pray boldly—speak into existence what scripture says concerning your situation—the enemy wants nothing more than for us NOT TO COMPLETE THE DAMAGING THOUGHTS CONTINUOUSLY (with FAITH)
7 The enemy dreads affirmative declarations over our difficulties because it means GOD will come through!
Psalm 70 reminds us that it is okay to cry out when we are in trouble and ask for help urgently. It shows us how important it is always put our faith ahead of situations like these because this draws attention away from ourselves unto the one completer.
The psalmist recognizes His own limitations/failure—in prayer He believes that victories come from complete surrender rather than mere professionality; he provides anxiousness on HIS NEED alone —after receiving divine help; he then pronounces praises towards the Almighty!
Prayer is powerful, and the more specific we are in our requests to God, FAITHFUL in waiting for His timing and drawing from/ remember His promises; the more likely we are to receive a quick deliverance.
Don’t be shy to invite others, every step of the journey (testimonies of some previous grace periods—reduces anxiety) because testimonies along the way can help recruit others unto praising God with you!
Never underestimate what doors your victory might open or how it can impact those around you. Always believe that your need for God trumps anything else—that KNEELING IS WHERE OUR POWER LIES!
