The Deliverer - Psalm 70
Passage: Psalm 70:1–70:5
1 Make haste, O God, to deliver me! O LORD, make haste to help me! 2 Let them be put to shame and confusion who seek my life! Let them be turned back and brought to dishonor who delight in my hurt! 3 Let them turn back because of their shame who say, "Aha, Aha!" 4 May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you! May those who love your salvation say evermore, "God is great!" 5 But I am poor and needy; hasten to me, O God! You are my help and my deliverer; O LORD, do not delay!"
To know God as your deliverer, follow King David's example:
- David cried out fervently and specifically in prayer to the One who delivers
- David yielded to the timing of the One who delivers
- David trusted in the character of the One who delivers
