"Help! I've fallen and I can't get up." So was the tag line of the commercial for a product called Life Call. Marketed to senior citizens in the late 80's to 1990, this product was worn around the neck like a pendant, and if a senior fell, they could activate it so that emergency services would respond.
Sometimes I get overwhelmed in life. My desk is buried with my papers, my counter is covered with school papers, my car is buried in gold fish crumbs and snack wrappers. Even my wallet is buried in my purse in a mass of receipts and notes. I feel like I've fallen and I can't get up!
I don't need a Life Call to be heard. My call goes out to my Savior. In the words of Mandisa, "My deliverer has rescued me." I know where my help comes from. I just need to be sure that my Life Call is going to the right emergency service provider. My Provider hears my call and rescues me, every time I need it.
Psalm 31:2 -- Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me.
Psalm 71:2 -- Rescue me and deliver me in your righteousness; turn your ear to me and save me.
Psalm 144:2 -- He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me.
