“This Poor Man Cried”

Psalm 34:6  (ID: 1708)

As fallen creatures, we all face troubles. Pride, however, often keeps us from humbly bringing those troubles before the Lord. In this meditation on Psalm 34:6, Alistair Begg looks at King David’s earnest call to God, which reminds us that as Christians, we can come to God in our repentance and pain. When we earnestly and humbly call on Christ, He hears us—and, the Bible assures us, He answers.


6This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him

and saved him out of all his troubles.
