Heard My Cry
“Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me.” Psalm 50:15
Throughout the book of Psalms, many times the Psalmist (often thought to be David or someone else) cries out to God for deliverance. We have all done it at some point—I’ve been crying out to God daily because of so many mixed feelings and just a need for guidance, direction, and clarity. We need to cry out to God and let Him know we need Him—that’s called humility and reverence! Revere God and let Him know He is supremely able to do everything you need because that is what He wants to do.
All of us will or have experienced sorrow. We have lost loved ones, experienced attacks in our physical bodies, been tried at work, been broken-hearted and desolate, lost friends, and witnessed the brokenness of our families. We have had many things to cry about to come against us. Yet because of this verse and 5 others, we can cry out to God and trust that He hears us. We can trust that if we know that God hears us, we can know that we have what we ask for (1 John 5:15). Here God tells us that He will rescue us whenever we call upon Him, so do not be afraid to cry out to God for help. Quite frankly, He is the only one that can help us!
“”You called in trouble and I rescued you; I answered you in the hiding place of thunder; I proved you at the waters of Meribah. Selah.” Psalm 81:7
