God Hears Me – Psalm 4:1

God Hears Me

Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer. O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? But know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the Lord will hear when I call unto him. Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the Lord. There be many that say, Who will shew us any good? Lord, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us. Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased. I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.

We cry and ask God to hear us and here is what the Lord says in Isaiah 65:24 “It shall come to pass That before they call, I will answer; And while they are still speaking, I will hear.”  So, God hears us before we call because He is so in love with his children. He is so merciful as well.

God has set the godly apart for Himself and He has always separated His children from the world. God plagued Egypt with supernatural signs and wonders to convince Pharaoh to let the children of Israel go and leave Egypt.

God sent darkness

In two major plagues that God sent to Egypt, He separated Israel from Egypt. The first one was when God sent darkness so thick that it could be felt in Egypt. No one could go out because the dark was so thick they could not travel. But the Israelites in Goshen had light and the darkness didn’t touch them. 
The other plague was when God killed all the firstborn of Egypt but not one of the Israelites first born were touched because God separated His children from the world. God protects His own. Look at Psalm 91: He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;  Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
