(Psalm 34:17&18)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.
Every time I’ve reached the point of crying out, God immediately answered. God answered my cry because there was surrender and recognition of my need for him. I went to him in my time of trouble because I knew only he could help me. Often the answer did not immediately resolve the difficulty, but he was there to comfort me and lead me through it.
When I come to the end of myself, and I humbly stand before the Lord, my words are flowing from a humbled heart. That’s when he draws near to me. He hears and he answers. Therefore I can confidently recommend that you trust in God in your time of need, cry out to him, and he will be there to answer you.
