“Save, LORD! May the King answer us when we call,” Psalm 20:9, NKJV
I am definitely a girly girl, to an extent. I love the idea of love. I can bury myself in stories of romance and rescue. What is a lovelier picture than that of a knight in shining armor coming to the rescue of a damsel in distress? I’ll tell what a lovelier picture is, when the King himself gets personally involved in the rescue.
As long as we live in this earth days of trouble are never far from any of us. There will always be an occasion that we need to be rescued, be it mind, body or spirit. We will never be the end all of every answer to every trouble we face. There will arise at one point or another a situation or a trial where nothing and no one can help unless the most powerful in the land intercedes on our behalf.
“Save, LORD!” becomes more of a desperate plea than a battle cry. When adversity has made itself too comfortable in your presence and you don’t know how to rid this awful pest, a plea to the King to answer our most urgent request comes forth from the lips, seeking a life saver to lift us up out of the drowning depths.
Our King is not too high that He cannot hear. Our King is not so secluded behind palace walls that He doesn’t see the plight of His people. Our King has granted us an open access policy to be able to reach Him when hard times are weighing us down. “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need,” (Hebrews 4:16). Therefore, we cry out, “Save, LORD! May the King answer us when we call,” (Psalm 20:9).
“In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me,” (Psalm 86:7). Over and over again we see the plea. Over and over again we see the promise. The King is waiting to hear from you and me. Stop carrying the trouble alone. Seek the King’s intervention in your life.
Sometimes a knight in shining armor just won’t do. You need the King to come to the rescue. Be blessed.
