Psalm 37:39,40 (Pt. 2)  Thought/Prayer:  Help, Deliver, Save.  Topics:  2 at end.

“But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.
And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.”  (AKJV)  (Read this scripture and more at

When we are in trouble in our lives, what does it mean to us that the Lord shall help us and deliver us?  From this scripture, we can pull out several answers to this question.

For one thing, He is our strength in trouble.  Trouble usually makes us feel quite weak and unable to perform, even to being blinded to possibilities to remedy a situation.  But Jesus is strength.  And He sees all for us.

He helps us.  The Holy Spirit is our helper.  John chapter 14 speaks of Him as being our helper.  Jesus sends Him in His name.

He delivers us.  From whom?  From the wicked.  And, often, our troubles can come through people who have evil intent toward us, sometimes because we do believe.  But it is the Lord’s firm grip that can deliver us from our situations, our trials.

He saves us.  Of course, salvation from our sin comes through faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior.  But he also saves us from daily trials, tribulations, troubles.  If we can picture it, His hand is always reaching down to us, as we reach up to grasp it and are saved from trouble after trouble. 

Lord, we want to claim this passage from Your Word.  We claim it for our own selves; but we also claim it for families in deep trouble with LIFE issues.  May we, in some way, let it be known how You are the One who does help, deliver and save.  For those at abortion clinics with Your Word in their hearts and on their lips, guide them in what they say and do so women headed into the door will pause, and then be helped, delivered, and for some, find salvation. 

Topics:  Praise our God of deliverance.  Pray for those who need him because of troubles in issues of LIFE.
