Crying Out to the Lord

Hello again!

This is what God gave me today in His word:

The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies. The cords of death encompassed me; the torrents of destruction assailed me; the cords of Sheol entangled me; the snares of death confronted me. In my distress I called upon the LORD; to my God I cried for help. From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry to him reached his ears. (Psalms 18:2-6)

Even if it seems as though everyone has turned against us, we can know that we have a redeemer. We have someone who will always rescue us when we call out to Him. We see this pattern repeated all through the Bible – When the¬†Israelites¬†were in captivity, they cried out to the Lord, and He set them free. Likewise, whenever in the New Testament a person with some ailment called out to Christ, and the request was according to God’s will, He healed them.

Many are tempted to call God an unloving tyrant, because there is sin and pain in the World. The reality though, is that God isn’t a tyrant, nor is He unloving. To the contrary, it was mankind that brought sin and pain upon our-self through sinning, and God who made a way for us to still be forgiven. Jesus has given us the ability to be healed of any and every sickness, whether physical or Spiritual. Though perhaps not in this life, certainly in the next. We just have to, like David, cry out to Him, and He will hear us.

You are Loved!
