Cry Out!

[Sunday, August 25]

“Never hesitate to cry out to Me, says the Lord. Even in times when you have done wrong, don’t run away from Me, run to Me! And at the moment when you cry out, so shall I surely come to save you.”



Prophetic Scripture:

…I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the Lord, and he heard me… (Jonah 2:2).

When Jonah got out of God’s will and ended up in the belly of the great whale, he realized that he had taken a wrong turn in running away from God. I am sure it was no pleasure ride inside the fish’s smelly stomach. In fact, Jonah referred to it as “hell.” Yet, when
Jonah cried out to God in the midst of his situation, the Lord heard Jonah. Of course, we know the end of the story—how the fish spit Jonah out on dry ground and Jonah obeyed God’s call for him.

Sometimes we think that because we disobeyed God or took a wrong turn somewhere that God stops listening to us when we cry out to Him. On the contrary, that is exactly what God wants us to do. The Lord was waiting for Jonah’s cry just so He could rescue him from his situation. God is waiting for you to cry out to Him today. Your calling out to Him has nothing to do with your own righteousness or lack thereof. He answers because of His mercy. So, no matter where you are, what has happened, or what you have done right or wrong, always run to the Lord and cry out!


Prayer:

Father, I know that You are always listening for my cry. You don’t answer based on my own right or wrong. You hear my cry because of Your mercy. I will always run to You in my time of need and never run away. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
