“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 verse 6.
You are not alone today with your fears and pain. David, the psalmist, was fearing for his life and was passing through many terrors “The pangs of death surrounded me, and the floods of ungodliness made me afraid. The sorrows of Sheol surrounded me; the snares of death confronted me” verses 4-5.
Whilst David had his loyal followers who would die for him, and you may have dear friends wanting to help, whoever you have or do not have, be like David who “called upon the Lord, and cried out to my God”. Our God is that near to you today that you can just cry out and offload your fears and hurt. Jonah once cried to God from the bottom of the ocean Jonah chapter 2 verse 1; Nehemiah prayed quickly whilst at work before King Artaxerxes Nehemiah chapter 2 verse 4. Simply “call upon the Lord, and cry out to God”.
Remarkable as that is, David found “God heard my voice from His temple, and my cry came before Him, even to His ears”. God heard David; in the very temple of heaven, God heard David Himself -He was not told by anyone else, God heard.
Dear friend, God will hear you today: “Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.” Psalm 50 verse 15.
