Psalms: Nourishment for the Soul (part nine)
God rescues, saves, and delivers His people in a number of different ways. Certainly from the New Testament we rightly associate “saving” with eternal salvation. But in the Old Testament, God’s salvation usually means deliverance from temporal circumstances. David understood these truths well, have enjoyed God’s deliverance more than once. From what do you need God to deliver you? We learn from Psalm 34 the principle that God rescues His saints in response to our righteousness and trust, which David outlines in simple terms for our instruction.
