I was crying to the Lord with my voice,
And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah.

Psalm 3:4 (NASB)

I recently read a lovely story about a young seven year old Yorkshire lad, who had sent a handwritten letter of congratulations to Her Majesty The Queen on her Platinum Jubilee. Much to their surpise  was the special delivery by their postman with the Buckingham Palace post stamp on it! Her Majesty had read the lad’s letter and sent a beautiful thank you card. As you can imagine the whole family were thrilled and treasured the Royal answer.

In our verse today we encounter the joy of David, as Almighty God answered his prayer – a letter to Heaven’s Throne room. As special as a response from the Queen is, it pales in comparison to an answer from the Throne of God Almighty. Is it any surprise that David adds a pause for thought at the end of this verse; any communication from God deserves a pause of thankfulness.

Dear reader, David’s God is our God too, and He is unchanging through the ages. He hears the prayers of His children and responds to them all in His perfect time. Our Father God deals personally with His own correspondence from you. “Selah.”

  1. Yes, this is a wonderful word picture, brother. The Lord answers every prayer personally, rather than sending it to some automated system. The greatest comfort, come what may, are these two words: God knows.
