Our cries are heard
Psalm 3:4 (ESV)
I cried out to the Lord with my voice, and He heard me from His holy hill.
Crying out for help is a plea of desperation when everything you’ve done just doesn’t seem to work. It usually means we are at our lowest point in life and we need a savior. Thankfully for us, we have the greatest savior anyone could ever ask for in Jesus Christ.
In this world, we will always have trouble. Something will always go wrong. When that happens, we can either try to fix the problem ourselves, or have a professional fix it for us. It could either be a physical problem that a maintenance man could fix or an emotional problem for which a therapist could try to help. Crying out to God can come from many backgrounds. We just lost our job, we lost a loved one or we are looking for direction in life. Whatever the case, God is there to help us and He hears us every single time.
We should have a sense of confidence that God always hears us. Even when God doesn’t answer our prayers right away, He’s not ignoring us. God knows our hearts and knows what’s best for us in that particular time and place in our lives. We also have to listen and hear God through our prayers. Praying is not a one-way conversation where we list a bunch of problems we want God to fix for us. It’s a back-and-forth exchange with our loving Father.
We have to understand that God always hears us, even when it doesn’t seem like it. We have to be patient with our prayers and realize how God wants us to live our life. Let’s try praying our prayers aloud before going to bed at night or when we wake up in the morning. God can hear our thoughts, but sometimes it works better for people to realize what they’re praying for when they can hear their own voice. God hears our cries, so don’t be afraid to cry out to Him. He will always be there for you when no one else will.
This week, cry out to God and listen for his response. He cares for you and He loves you. A great relationship always starts with a conversation, begin yours today if you would like to follow Jesus and have a relationship with him.
