Psalm 18:6 “In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears.”
[And when, in faithfulness and love He heard David’s cry, God moved in His might to answer. David was involved in dozens if not hundreds of battles and as far as we know he was never wounded or defeated! God answered.]
Psalm 18:7 “The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry.”
[You, Lord God, are a person of passion: when you are aroused, there is no stopping you. You act in justice, you act in love, you act in conviction, you act in power! Praise be to you for your love so displayed.]
Psalm 18:8 “Smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it.”
[Your wrath is righteous and will not be quenched until there is justice done and wrongs righted. The heat of your heart leads to the rescue of your children in the right way and at the right time.
I think of Daniel when faced with death because the king made the impossible request that his dream be told to him and interpreted. Daniel prayed and God gave him the dream and it’s meaning. And later when :Daniel was thrown to the lions, God was there and saved him.
Recently the Lord did a similar thing for me; no lions, but angry people whom God is working in. “Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him and He will bring forth your righteousness as the light….” Psalm 37. He hears and He moves, He’s just waiting for us to trust Him! Trust (faith) is everything, for without faith we can’t please God.
