Day 50 – To Deliver Your Soul from Death


 ‘Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear Him, upon them that hope in His mercy; to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine’ Ps. 33:18-19

This scripture fascinates and refreshes me each time I read it. God’s eyes are upon those that hope in his mercy! When the Lord sets His eyes upon a man to show him mercy, you will agree with me that that person is well secured all the times. Verse 19 clearly states what God’s mercy will accomplish in their lives and situation: a) to deliver their soul from death; b) to keep them alive in famine. The word ‘deliver’ here literarily mean ‘to snatch away’ or ‘to rescue’. And the word ‘death’ could also represent any kind of ‘pestilence’, ‘disaster’ or ‘ruin’. Life is full of negative situations – and God is giving you an assurance for safety – if you will only hope in His mercy! When you are faced with life’s hopeless situations and you feel helpless, you can cry unto God for mercy, and He will send His deliverance and enlargement!

Your challenge could be in the area of health, finances, or marriage. Once, the Jews were faced with the crises of imminent extermination; they cried unto God with fasting. God showed them His favour and sent deliverance and enlargement to them. (Esther 3 to 10). God will do the same for you today. Whatever your challenges, call upon God NOW – tell Him ‘Oh Lord, have mercy on me, for I hope in your mercy’.  The Lord will deliver your soul from your troubles today, in Jesus name. Amen.
