Call And He Will Answer
August 26, 2023
"I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place." Psalm 118:5
We have all been in trouble and called on friends to help, and it seemed not even our best friend could help. We have called on family members to help, and they were not able to help. We all have felt like we were backed into a corner and didn't know how we were going to make it out. In many situations it is only after we call on everybody else, then we call on The Lord. There is not a situation too hard for God, you are never bothering God when you call on Him in trouble. The Scripture reminds us to, call upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered us, and set us in a large place. I encourage you today that when you are feeling distressed to call upon The Lord, and know He will answer you. It is all right to call on The Lord in every situation, and at any time of the day or the night, because people may not be able to help you, but God can. You can call on people and get their voice mail or may not get an answer at all, but when you call on The Lord He will always answer you. Not only will He answer you, but also He will set you in a large place. The Lord will bring you out of your situation, and pick you up out of the lowly places of life and set you in large place. Call on the name of The Lord with all your problems; God is still hearing and answering you when you pray. Call on The Lord first and He will answer you, and not only will God answer you He will deliver you. Don't try to handle situations and circumstances by yourself, but call on The Lord in everything and He will answer you, and set you in a large place. Since I will call on The Lord when I am in distress, and know that He hears me and sets me in a large place, I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Lord thank you for always hearing me when I call. Help me not to try to handle anything by myself, but to trust you when I am trouble. I know you hear my prayers and will answer me through all of my trouble. Thank you Lord for hearing my cry. In Jesus Name, Amen.
