Call Upon the Lord

I posted earlier this month about Job, and how in his distress, he showed faith by continuing a dialogue with God.  Today I’m reading the 22rd Chapter of 2 Samuel, to prepare for our Bible study later today.  These verses are almost identical to Psalm 18, and constitute David’s song of praise to God, who had delivered him from all of his enemies.  Like Job, David  “called upon the Lord” in his troubles, and God answered him.  Not surprisingly, this Psalm has been adapted in modern times, as well, by  Michael O’Shields.  O’ Shields was a young minister travelling in Oklahoma and Texas in the 1970s. He often struggled to make ends meet, and so he was calling upon the Lord for very tangible, everyday needs when he wrote “I Will Call Upon the Lord”.  Remember these words of David in your  own times of tribulation.  Never hesitate to call on Him.
