Many people believe the “SOS” distress signal is an abbreviation for “save our souls” or “save our ship.” But in reality, these are considered backronyms, and the “SOS” letters are just a continuous Morse code string of three dots, three dashes, and three dots all run together with no spaces or full stops (…—…). Since three dots form the letter “S” and three dashes form an “O” according to Int’l Morse code, the signal came to be called an “SOS”. Let me lift this up! Song writers, Jason Ingram, Paul Mabury, & Lauren Daigle lyrically penned a powerful song entitled Rescue. In referring to God’s ability to hear our silent “SOS” distress calls they wrote the following verse, “I hear you whisper underneath your breath. I hear your SOS, your SOS. I will send out an army to find you in the middle of the darkest night. [Yes], it’s true, I will rescue you. I will never stop marching to reach you in the middle of the hardest fight. [Yes], it’s true, I will rescue you.” All I can say is, “WOW”!! Psalm 54:7 confirms, “For you have rescued me from my troubles and helped me to triumph over my enemies” and 2 Corinthians 1:10 affirms, “And he did rescue us from mortal danger, and he will rescue us again. We have placed our confidence in him, and he will continue to rescue us.” Isn’t it amazing that God would send out an army in the middle our darkest night to rescue and deliver us from all forms of hurt, harm, and danger?! Amazingly, God takes our “SOS” and turns them into a “PTL”!
