We live in a noisy and busy world, if we are not careful, the things of this world can drown out the Spirit. -Mary R. Durham
Scripture Reading: “In my distress, I called upon the Lord and cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His temple, And my cry came before Him, even to His ears.” -Psalm 18:6
Are any of you distressed or struggling with something??
Cry out to the Lord!
Our Father in heaven does not turn from the cries of His children. As we have read today, they come before Him, even to His ears. And He answers, He truly does. We find proof in today’s reading.
Lets take a look at who wrote the verse and when:
Who? King David did.
When? My Bible says this psalm was written the day David was delivered from his enemies and the hand of Saul. he had cried out to the Lord and He delivered! It may not always turn out this way but the lord does hear our cries. It’s so important that we remember this. Just looking at David’s psalms it is ever so evident that the Lord hears and cares for His children.
“Father, thank you once again for giving us evidence that our prayers are heard. Like David we can call out to You and You will hear us. Lord, today I cry out to You, not in distress, but in a moment of stress. I’m feeling very overwhelmed and my life seems to filled with endless busyness. Father, I ask that you may help me to relax. I place everything in Your hands. Help me to finish what needs to be finished and not worry about the rest. May Your will be done. Carry me through this day. Give me joy and patience no matter the circumstance. I praise You, oh Holy One. Your works are so marvelous. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen”
Through all the chaos and noise in the world, God can still hear the whispered prayer of His child.
