Deliverence In Times of Trouble

*WORD MOMENTS* with Baba Bishop Nelson Nzvimbo
KJV says Psalm 50:15 And call upon me *in the day of trouble*: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
When David wrote this Psalm, it was that time he had to run away and hide from Saul because Saul hated him coz of the anointing of kingship which was vested on David. He had to hide amongst people of a bad reputation, he had to sleep in caves when he had a home and family. He had to be always on the run for his life from Saul who wanted him dead at all cost. 
Deliverence In Times of Trouble

Right there... David really needed a deliverer and only one deliverer could do it, the God of his fathers. In that time of trouble, he remembered to call that God and Jehovah is His name. 
David did not call his brothers who were mighty men of war to deliver him, remember who his brothers were in the story of his being anointed and when he visited them with food in a time of war as they were soldiers in Saul"s army. David did not call these mighty men of war. 
He knew whom to call in his time of TROUBLE.
And guess what!! God delivered him from his TROUBLES from Saul. That's after being delivered, he wrote the Psalm.
Every one of us has a day of TROUBLE in his/her daily life. The day may not be today, this week, this month or this year, but we have a day we get into TROUBLE. On that day, we must remember Psalm 50:15, to call upon the name of the Lord for our deliverance.
We also have Troubles with family, with sicknesses, of unemployment, of relationships going sour, of living amongst bad influencers, of living even in a corrupt system, Troubles with evil governments and of abusing bosses at work and abusing spouses at home. Troubles of not being able to pay up rents, fees, not having food on my table, nowhere to stay, bad marriages and so forth. 
Hear me, we all need to be delivered from any of the these and those that you know you are in and want out.
In that time of TROUBLE, don't start by calling people; your mom, your dad, your sibling, your uncle, your auntie, your hubby, your wife. As may be,  they also will be in their own TROUBLES and busy calling someone to deliver them. And you end up being more frustrated, angry and depressed by their not responding to you accordingly.
Three important points to take note in this text:
1. *We call on him*. Whom do we call in times of trouble?
Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord ... every one -- whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, he shall be saved.
2. *He delivers us*. Were do we look for deliverance in times of trouble? 
Psalm 121:1-2 says, I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from mountains? No, my strength comes from God, who made heaven, and earth, and mountains.
3. *We glorify after being delivered*. Do we remember to thanks and give God glory when we are delivered? 
In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 ThesS 5:18
Brenton Septuagint Translation says, And call upon me in the *day of affliction*, and I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me. 
International Standard Version says, Call on me *in the day of distress*; I will deliver you, and you will glorify me.
In the day of your Troubles, in the day of your Afflictions and in the day of your Distress, remember to call upon the Lord your God and he will surely deliver you in Christ Jesus name. The only name was given to us in which we may be saved, JESUS. Call on Him now and we are assured already of His Delivering us. For the son of man was manifested to destroy ALL the WORKS of the devil.
1. Call on Him
2. He will deliver you 

3. Glorify Him, give thanks for His Saving power
