Throughout man’s history, believers have cried out to God in times of distress. Sometimes after years of praying, a single cry brings direction or deliverance instantly. Many have wondered why there are such powerful results from simply crying out to God, yet the promise is clear: “Call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me” (Psalm 50:15).
I Chronicles 4:10 “And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.” Jabez prayer got answered. Yours can be today.
Crying out to God is an act of desperation and total concentration. It is a reckless expression of faith and trust in His goodness and power to act on your behalf. It is genuine humility, unconditional surrender, plea for mercy, personal helplessness, faith in his power.
Desperate times are here and desperate measure that is sure to work is needed. That is crying to God. He is sure to answer because he has promised to answer when we call this is because his ears are not heavy, that it cannot hear.
“Throughout the five decades of my Christian life, I have heard at least a hundred sermons or teachings on prayer. I have read countless books and articles on prayer. Most of these sermons, teachings, books, and articles emphasize the amazing truth that God answers prayer. The all-powerful, all-knowing, all-wise God of the universe actually listens to us and, in some mysterious and gracious way, takes our prayers into account…… “
” Why keep crying to God?Prayer is not simply a request delivery system. Yes, through prayer we make our requests of God. And, yes, through prayer, God hears us. But, of course, God knows what we need even before we ask (Matt 6:8). And we mustn’t think that we will get what we want from God because we “babble on and on,” as if we could wear God down with endless repetition. So why would we cry out morning, noon, and night? What would be the point of this?” One point would be to enter into a deeper, truer, and more honest relationship with God. Prayer is not just a way to communicate our needs to God. It is an invitation to relationship. It is an opening to intimacy. It is a door into the hospitality of God’s home. Thus, in times of distress or in times of rejoicing, we repeat our prayers, not because God missed something the first time we prayed, but because our souls yearn for God’s embrace. More than answers to prayer, we need God.” Excerpts from Mark D. Roberts book “WHY KEEP CRYING OUT TO GOD?”
Before it is too late for you, cry out. You need a CHANGE cry out. You need HELP cry out. You need HEALTH cry out. Darkness all around you, cry out. You find out you can go beyond a point in life, cry out.
So get up and cry out because moping, casting blame, waiting for change to come and even engaging in crime will not pay. Cry out to God for a change and I’m sure he will come to your aid. Psalm 18:6 “In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.”
Happy New Month everyone, all d best. #CryOutToday God bless you.
