Psalm 4:2

Psalm 4:2 Answer me when I call, O God, my vindicator! You freed me from distress; have mercy on me and hear my prayer.

The Psalmist cries out to God to hear him and to respond. It is interesting that all the verbs directed to God - 'answer', 'have mercy' and 'hear' - are imperative verbs. The Psalmist is telling God to hear and to respond! This confidence can only come from a strong and certain relationship - he would not otherwise dare to presume. This is covenant relationship; a permanent, lasting and robust relationship based upon mutual commitment and obligation. The Psalmist knows that he will be heard because of God's character and who He is and because - in the covenant - He has promised.

If our relationship with God is also based on covenant, then let's cry out to Him with equal fervour and boldness.
