Another Psalm that goes along with this one is Psalm 9:9-10, “The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know Your name will trust in You, for You, Lord, have never forsaken those who trust You.” But when we’re ambushed by sickness or loss, putting our faith and trust in the Lord may be difficult, especially if what we think should happen isn’t materializing. That’s when we start doubting everything…our spiritual strength, our faith level, even our reliance in the Lord. This Psalm talks of surrounding ourselves with Songs of Deliverance. Now Songs of Deliverance were used to not only praise God for bringing them through a battle victoriously, but to recall God’s power and provision in the past, as well as to declare confidence in Him in the future. These songs showed God’s omnipresence and omniscience…that He was present in all places at all times with unlimited authority and understanding. We all have within us a unique and very personal Song of Deliverance. It’s made up of past battles, victories, and how God has worked in our life…and should be used in times of trouble to bolster our faith.
