Behold, the eye of Yahweh is on those who fear him,
on those who hope
for his loyal love to deliver their soul from death
and to keep them alive in famine. (Psalm 33:18-19 LEB)
Oh, what joy for those
whose disobedience is forgiven,
whose sin is put out of sight!
Yes, what joy for those
whose record the Lord has cleared of guilt,
whose lives are lived in complete honesty! (Psalm 32:1-2 NLT)
God is pleased when we not only look to Him for spiritual love to forgive us our sins, and remove them, He is also pleased when we seek Him for help, prosperity and deliverance. Our verse mentions “to keep alive in famine.” Isaac planted in famine, in faith toward God’s promise to Abraham, and God gave it a 100 fold increase. That’s more than barely getting by. That is abundance. Regarding us seeking God for material help and blessing, it is said that God is actively looking for such people. How eager must God be to help, if He is already standing on the watch tower, peering over and actively looking and scanning, if anyone would only but ask and believe Him to be faithful to His promise. He wants to help more than you want to be rescued and blessed.
