The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
I have prayed and ask the Lord for many things. I have sought his wisdom and direction. Still there have been times of despair when I was emotionally distraught, and I have cried out to the Lord.
In my recollection, every time I’ve reached the point of crying out God has immediately answered, and the answer has always brought me comfort. Often the answer does not resolve the difficulty or even bring a positive outcome, but there was always a warm comforting touch from my Father.
I believe God answered my cry because in my crying out there was surrender and recognition of my need for him. I went to him in my time of trouble since I needed him, and only he would do.
When I come to the end of myself, and I’m at the place of despair, unpretentiously I stand before the Lord. Then my words flow from a humbled heart, and he draws near to me. He hears and he answers.
When you come to the point of despair, God will be there to hear you. He will answer.
