Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
He led them by a straight way.
The ESV heads this psalm Let the redeemed of the Lord say so. That means it is written for people like us, so we take special note! He recognised firstly that he was in trouble and secondly, he knew the way out! Sometimes we fail on the first point; more often on the second. Knowing we are in trouble we think we can get out of it ourselves. Not only is that a risky strategy, but an unnecessary one! When delivering us from our distress, our great Redeemer will always, lead us by a straight way. We only have to cry out to him!
