Distressed? Who Do You Call? Not Ghostbusters

Distressed? Who Do You Call? Not GhostbustersBut I call to God, and the Lord saves me. Evening, morning, and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice. He ransoms me unharmed from the battle waged against me, even though many oppose me. (Psalm 55:16-18 NIV)


Distressed situations permeate. Distress is defined by extreme anxiety, sorrow, or pain. Relationships begin, they end. Births begin and deaths end. Love shared, frustrations aired. News reports, truth to sort. Positive circumstances can produce anxiety. While most distressed situations lean towards adverse impact.

Back to Basic

King David was a happy shepherd boy. He may have thought- when I grow up, I’m going to be a warrior. He learned to protect sheep against harmful animals. Little faith held by others as he approached Goliath. David proved he did not need sophisticated equipment. He went with what he knew. Feeling distressed? Back up to what we know, baseline Biblical Truth. God is love. God is for us, not against us. He is here to bring life abundant. The devil is here to steal, kill, and destroy. Those who seek, find.


We call out to God, He saves. He ransoms us unharmed. Do you love thinking how God ransoms us unharmed? I see life in captions- we move forward unharmed. God is before us and our rear guard protecting us as we move through life. Distressed situations touch every life. God knows every name and hears our voices- when we cry out. No matter how many oppose, how strong the battle wages- God waits to ransom us unharmed.


Prayers for all individuals experiencing a distressed situation. You are loved by the King. Evening, morning, and noon- cry out to Jesus. He sits by God interceding on our behalf. The Holy Spirit is within nudging toward Truth. Back to basic Biblical Truth, no better way to face distressed situations.

Be encouraged!
