If a rod can part the Red Sea and a tree can make bitter waters sweet than I know the blood that drip from Jesus’ body from the tree on Calvary’s Hill is able to save, deliver, protect, heal, and restore my life. Did you notice God’s power isn’t necessarily released until there’s a problem. Well in Exodus chps. 15-16, the children of Israel had to cry out to God several times because they faced some major obstacles to say the least! But it was God’s power that delivered them out of each precarious and ominous impasse. Paul had an issue and he had to cry out to God and God’s response was classic! He said in 2 Cor 12:9, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” Did you notice Israel’s deliverance and Paul’s much needed response didn’t arrive until they cried out for help. How many people do you know that refuse to seek help when they need it most? I get it! Some people wait until they’re at their wits end to call out to God! But not me! Psalm 50:15 says, “Call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me” and Psalm 34:17 says, “The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.” Look-a-here God ain’t got to tell me twice! At the hint of trouble, I am calling on Jesus every time! Beloved of God, crying out to God is an act of desperation and total concentration. It is a fervent expression of faith in God and trust in His goodness and power to act on your behalf. Crying out to God expresses humility, surrender, plea for mercy, helplessness, desperation, and faith in God’s power. So today, Let us be quick to cry out to Him with humility, sincerity, and faith. God “will fulfill the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them” (Psalm 145:19).
