Why Not Use the Power of Crying Out to the Living God in Your Day of Trouble?
The Power of Prayer in Your Hour of Need!
Over and over, throughout history and in the Bible, we see God’s active involvement triggered by the cry of His people.
Moments of immediate, fearful need, hours of crisis, and days of trouble come to us all eventually. And they too often seem to show up unexpectedly, like a thief in the night.
The Power of Crying Out to God in Your Storms of Life
Have you ever found yourself in similar storms of life, or do you find yourself in a trial today? Then stop what you are doing right now and cry aloud to the Almighty God in your trouble.
“Call upon Me in the day of trouble: I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.”
— Psalm 50:15
God is expecting us to call upon Him. So we should be ready to cry out loud to the Lord for His saving help; as soon as a need arises. God says He will deliver us, so we should boldly expect His deliverance. And the great thing is; we then have one more reason to glorify Him.
Humility Required to Cry Aloud to God in Your Distress
God makes it clear and simple that He wants us to cry out to Him, that He will deliver us, and third that we are to glorify Him for it.
Are you one that prefers to be an independent, self-sufficient type? Would you rather suffer through the storm without asking for help, and then with pride say ‘Look what I did?’
Crying out to God allows us to recognize our weakness and at the same time experience His strength.
“For when I am weak, then am I strong.”
— 2 Corinthians 12:10
Keep in mind it takes a lot of humility to cry out loud to God in our desperate moments. But that is what He tells us to do, regardless of our thoughts about the situation. God wants us to clearly see in the end that He is our deliverer and that He deserves the thanks. We should glorify Him by saying ‘Look what God did!’
A Desperate Cry to Calm the Storm in Your Life
Consider Jesus’ disciples during the storm on the Sea of Galilee. They were feeling overwhelmed by trouble during this terrible storm and the boat was filling up with water. The disciples were in a panic and overwhelmed; worried they were going to drown. And even though Jesus was in the boat with them, He somehow remained sound asleep.
As the disciples reached total desperation, they cried out loud to Jesus saying ‘Lord, save us!’ It wasn’t until they cried out to Jesus in desperation that He took action and calmed the storm in their lives.
The simple fact of the matter is this: God is totally serious about hearing from those who cry out to Him in their day of trouble. Know this and believe it. God delights in showing Himself strong on behalf of anyone who is facing a desperate situation and will cry out for His deliverance.
May you use the power of crying out to the Lord in your day of trouble and be delivered into a life of growing prosperity!
God bless you always,
