    What does Psalms 34:4 mean it says

    "I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears."

    Hi Angellicutie, When you pray and seek Yah, he hears you. He answers your prayers and delivers you. Sometimes the answer is, "No." He knows what is best for you in eternity.

    Hello. This a Psalm of David. The occasion of this Psalm is set at a time when he was being persecuted & chased by Saul and then sought refuge in the country of Achish. See 1 Samuel 21:1-15 for the account.

    So, this is David's prayer to God, trusting God for His protection & guidance and not to trust in his own wisdom or devices. And this David did as he fled to Gath & also when he fled from Gath. When David confidently placed his trust & his life in God's Hands, all his fears & dread of what might happen to him, left him.

    And that is what real faith is: to give our concerns in life & the worries & dread in our hearts, completely over to the Lord for Him to deal with & help us - and not looking back at the problems. In like manner, the Apostle Paul many centuries later could say in Philippians 4:6,7, "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." David knew God's Peace in that awful time in his life - Paul also knew God's Peace when he faced afflictions & persecutions as a devoted servant of the Lord - and we can know it too as we confidently rest in our Lord Jesus & let Him take full control of our lives.
