I Sought the Lord

November 9, 2017




Psalm 34:4. 

I sought the Lord and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears. 











Sought - To go in search or in quest of. 

Answered - To act or move in response to. 

Delivered -  To set free or liberate. 

Fears -  The  feelings of dread  or  apprehension;  something  a person  is afraid of; anticipation of the possibility that something unpleasant will occur.  


I searched for the Lord and he acted in response to my quest; He set me free from the things that caused feelings of dread and apprehension, He liberated me from the things that I was afraid of.  


What kinds of things do I search for?  My phone.  I have even searched for my phone while I was talking on it.  I have physically turned around and went back home because I forgot my phone.   


My keys.  “Everyone stop what you’re doing and find my keys.  We are not leaving this house – we cannot leave this house – until you find my keys!!”  

 I look for these things – I seek these things in desperation – because I need them.   


I sought the Lord… 

Am I desperate for Him like I’m desperate for my phone?  Or my keys? 


I sought the Lord… 

Do I have to turn my car around and go back home immediately because I didn’t spend time with the Lord – or do I say a rushed prayer – do I acknowledge Him at all?  


I sought the Lord… 

“Everyone stop what you’re doing so we can pray.  We are not leaving this house – we cannot leave this house -  until we ask the Lord for wisdom and direction over our day – and we have to be quiet and listen right now.” 


I sought the Lord… 

…and He answered me.  He delivered me from all my fears… and from all my stress.   

…I sought the Lord.
