He Hears

I will praise the LORD at all times. I will constantly speak His praises. I will boast only in the LORD; let all who are helpless take heart. Come, let us tell of the LORD’s greatness; let us exalt His name together. I prayed to the LORD, and He answered me. He freed me from all my fears. (Psalms 34:1-4 NLT)

Why is David so full of joy and praising?  He prayed for help and the LORD answered and provided the help he needed.  I am reminded of a story I once read about a soldier that was running from the enemy.  He finds a cave to hide in.  In the darkness of the cave he pours his heart out to the Lord for protection.  He notices a spider weaving a web at the entrance of the cave.  The soldier thinks “How can a spider protect me?”  When the enemy comes looking for hidden soldiers they come to the cave.  They start to enter but then see the spider web.  “Can’t be anyone in here because the spider web has not been disturbed.”  What an awesome God to provide protection to this young soldier using a spider web.  He hears our prayers and answers.
