One Plea Fits All

Psalm 57:1-3

We’ve all seen the signs advertising that “one size fits all” Well, no matter the situation, a plea for God’s mercy is appropriate--"one plea fits all”. When King David made this plea he was in danger of his very life at the hands of King Saul. As he hid out in a cave he acknowledged that God was his refuge. He trusted in God to cover him in the “shadow of His Wings” until the calamities passed by.

Notice that David didn’t play “macho-man” here. He cried unto God. Then he states with absolute assurance that God shall “send forth His mercy and truth”. If you will continue to read the entire Psalm you will hear David erupt into song and praise.

Dear one, if you have never faced what David called the “lions”, you are much blessed. Scripture says it well: “Satan is like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour”. He is the real lion--the real enemy. Sometimes the calamities that come upon us involve things that are completely out of our control. Some of us desire to "fix" everthing and we cannot. What we can do is cry out for God’s mercy for ourselves and our families. He is always faithful to show us mercy and provide his loving protection.

“Father, I do cry out to you for your mercy. Be merciful unto me, a sinner. Your mercy is so great! I will sing your praises all the days of my life. Amen”


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
