Taking a knee? Crying out. There just are sometimes when you and I are compelled to cry out. Things pile up, stress builds, grief grows or frustration overcomes, and the weight of these burdens pushes us to become vocal. “Oh my God, why?” Then we fall silent, almost embarrassed to have asked the question, we fall to our knees in supplication.
Think about it. How does God react to those cries? Is He looking them; does He expect them? Is this the time when God is glorified in our weakness as He reveals His strength?
God’s Word tells us: “When the Lord saw her, he was moved with pity for her and said to her, ‘Do not weep.’He stepped forward and touched the coffin; at this the bearers halted, and he said, ‘Young man, I tell you, arise!’” (Luke 10:29).
Are you facing a great trial? Don’t be afraid to cry out. Actually, God expects our cries. He is moved by them and wants us to know that comfort is on the way. Take heart. Put yourself in God’s hands. Wait for His timing. When all seems lost and there seems no hope, no comfort or satisfaction to be found, be assured that He will hear your sorrow and comfort you.
“Heavenly Father, I know the importance of faith. Lord, I understand that it is not the amount of faith that’s important, but the One in Whom I place it. Thank You that You are the One able to u. Keep me low at the Cross and ever looking to Him.
In Jesus name we pray. Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
