When the hut of a settler in a mountainous region of Alaska caught fire, the settler was left without adequate shelter and with few provisions in the coldest state in the United States—in the middle of a frigid winter. Three weeks later, an aircraft flew over and spied the large SOS the man had stamped out in the snow and darkened with soot, and he was finally rescued. 

The psalmist David was certainly in dire straits. He was being pursued by jealous King Saul who sought to kill him. And so he fled to the city of Gath, where he pretended to be insane in order to preserve his life (see 1 Samuel 20–21). Out of those events emerged Psalm 34, where David cried out in prayer to God and found peace (vv. 4, 6). God heard his pleas and delivered him. 

Are you in a desperate situation and crying out for help? Be assured that God still hears and responds to our desperate prayers today. As with David, He’s attentive to our distress calls and takes away our fears (v. 4)—and sometimes even saves us “out of [our] troubles” (v. 6). 

Scripture invites us to “cast [our] cares on the Lord and he will sustain [us]” (Psalm 55:22). When we turn our difficult circumstances over to God, we can trust that He will provide the help we need. We are secure in His capable hands.

Welcome to another daily encouragement from the Our Daily Bread devotional.

Today's reading titled, Sending Out an SOS, was written by Allison Keita. When the hut of a settler in a mountainous region of Alaska caught fire, the settler was left without adequate shelter and with few provisions in the coldest state in the U.S., in the middle of a frigid winter. Three weeks later, the man was finally rescued when an aircraft flew over and spied the large SOS he had stamped out in the snow and darkened with soot. The psalmist David was certainly in dire straits. He was pursued by jealous King Saul, who sought to kill him, and so he fled to the city of Gath, where he pretended to be insane in order to preserve his life. Out of those events emerged Psalm 34, where David cried out in prayer to God and found peace. God heard his pleas and delivered him.

Are you in a desperate situation and crying out for help? Be assured that God still hears and responds to our desperate prayers today. As with David, he's attentive to our distress calls and takes away our fears and sometimes even saves us out of our troubles. Scripture invites us to cast our cares on the Lord and He will sustain us. When we turn our difficult circumstances over to God, we can trust that He'll provide the help we need.

We're secure in His capable hands. Today's Our Daily Bread devotional scripture reading is from Psalm 3 verses 1 through 10. This poor man called, and the Lord heard him. He saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. Taste and see that the Lord is good. Blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him. Fear the Lord, you His holy people, for those who fear Him lack nothing.

The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing. Let's pray. Loving Father, we thank you for hearing our prayers and bringing us comfort and peace and whatever we need most. And thank you especially for rescuing us from our sin and giving us the assurance of eternal life with you. It's in Jesus' name we pray. Amen. Today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread Ministries.
