The soul's deliverance -- Rev. Dr. J. Samuel Sudhakar

Scripture : 'Return, O LORD, deliver my soul...' Psalm 6:4

3 John 2 says, '... you mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.' The prosperity of the soul is very important in order to gain other blessings. Matthew 6:33 says, ' ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.' In this psalm David cried out for the mercies of God. He asked the LORD to deliver Him and heal him for his bones were vexed, weak and tired. His soul was also vexed. He asks, 'how long?' This may be your cry today. 'How long, LORD, how long? How long will my soul be crushed and vexed? Will not Your eyes fall upon me and deliver me?'

My dear son and daughter of God, surely there is deliverance. The Psalmist came out victoriously for when his soul cried out to the LORD, the LORD answered him. Psalm 6:8 and 9 says, '...for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping. The LORD hath heard my supplication.'

The prayers that go to God's presence will bring down God's blessings and deliverance in an awesome way. The mighty terrible God fights for you and redeems your soul from the pit experience. The zealous God is with you even this morning for He will deliver your soul from every affliction you are undergoing. Men cannot understand your path. They will blame you and vex you till the end of your life. But your God encourages you in your soul that you may shine for the glory of God. When the depth of your soul calls unto the depth of God, the power of God lifts you up. This day is very important for you as the LORD has come down to deliver your soul from bondage and set your free.

Prayer : LORD, you are the Keeper of my soul; keep me safe. Amen.

Thought for the Day : A good soul rests in the bosom of God.
