To the Lord I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill.
Do you cry out to the Lord? Many people are crying out right now, but some have forgotten how to get an answer.
It is important to direct our cries to the one who has the answers. Just the act of crying out our pleas for mercy and for help to no one in particular isn’t going to get us what we need. When we cry out to the wrong person, we won’t get what we need. Our peace comes from knowing that we’re speaking to someone who can provide the correct answers, someone who wants to help us.
It is important to know what to expect from the one we’re crying out to. When we cry aloud to the Lord, we can know that he is interested in shielding us, answering us, and sustaining us. He wants to bless us.
It is important to listen for the answer with the expectation that we’ll obey his instruction. What good is it to call to the Lord if we don’t concern ourselves with his answer? Why would he want to answer us when we have no intention of accepting his instruction? When we call to the Lord, we can be sure that the guidance we’re waiting for will bring us to a better place in our lives. He will help us achieve those little victories that keep us walking forward with no intention of looking back.
I love knowing that God is love. His answers are full of love because that is how he guides his children.
