Cry Out to Jesus

Random Thoughts…

I wanted to share the video and lyrics of the song, “Cry Out for Jesus” by Third Day. Along with this – I’m leaving some scriptures where the people have cried out to the Lord.  Where are you today? Have you been crying out to the Lord and feel there is no response? Maybe that lack of hearing from the Lord, is the response. Maybe the answer to your prayer, is no and that’s why there’s silence. Maybe there’s sin in your life or the one that you’re praying for and repentance needs to occur. Whatever the situation is, the Lord says he hears us. He will answer, just remember you may not like the answer, doesn’t mean he didn’t hear you. Keep crying out to the Lord, for he cares for you.

Scriptures that “Cry Out to Lord”

Psalm 107:13 Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, And He saved them out of their distresses.

Numbers 20:16 but when we cried out to the LORD, he heard our cry and sent an angel and brought us out of Egypt.

1 Samuel 7:8
They said to Samuel, “Do not stop crying out to the LORD our God for us, that he may rescue us from the hand of the Philistines.”

2 Samuel 22:7
In my distress I called to the LORD; I called out to my God. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came to his ears.

Psalm 34:17
The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.

Psalm 84:2
My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of theLORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.

Psalm 102:1
A prayer of an afflicted man. When he is faint and pours out his lament before the LORD. ] Hear my prayer, O LORD; let my cry for help come to you.

Be encouraged my friend – God is in control – or maybe you need to give him the control.

Lyrics: “Cry Out To Jesus”

To everyone who’s lost someone they love
Long before it was their time
You feel like the days you had were not enough
when you said goodbye

 

And to all of the people with burdens and pains
Keeping you back from your life
You believe that there’s nothing and there is no one
Who can make it right

There is hope for the helpless
Rest for the weary
Love for the broken heart
There is grace and forgiveness
Mercy and healing
He’ll meet you wherever you are
Cry out to Jesus, Cry out to Jesus

For the marriage that’s struggling just to hang on
They lost all of their faith in love
They’ve done all they can to make it right again
Still it’s not enough

For the ones who can’t break the addictions and chains
You try to give up but you come back again
Just remember that you’re not alone in your shame
And your suffering

When your lonely
And it feels like the whole world is falling on you
You just reach out, you just cry out to Jesus
Cry to Jesus

To the widow who suffers from being alone
Wiping the tears from her eyes
For the children around the world without a home
Say a prayer tonight

God Hears Your Cry

Today’s Date: February 15, 2010

God Hears Your Cry

Reading: Exodus 37:1-38:31 ~ Matthew 28:1-20 ~ Psalm 34:11-22 ~ Proverbs 9:9-10 (www.OneYearBibleBlog.com from Feb 14, 2010)

S – Scripture:

Psalm 34:17-18 “The LORD hears his people when they call to him for help.  He rescues them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those who are crushed in spirit.”

O – Observation:

Here’s an excerpt from the “God and Man in Proverbs” via OYBB:

~I am sure all of us have moments of needing help.  Moments of trouble.  Moments of being brokenhearted.  Moments of being crushed in spirit.  The big question is what do we do in those moments?  Or, who do we turn to?  Do you call to God in those moments?  Do you know that he will help you?  Do you know that he will rescue you?  Do you know that he is close to you?  Do you know that He is near? ~

It’s interesting to read in Psalm 34 that this is the Psalm of David, when he pretended to be insane in front of Abimelech in order to be sent away. Then David wrote this passage – to fear the Lord, to receive comfort and eternal happiness. I know that the Lord hears me as the scriptures say to ask and ye shall receive, based on God’s will. David knew that God would take care of him and rescue him, yet he still pretended to be “insane” in order for Abimelech to let him go. It worked. I’m not sure what this has to do with what David wrote in chapter 34, but maybe it’s something to do with the lesson that David had to go through in order for him to learn that God would take care of him and so that we (the generations after) would be able to learn from David’s ways.

A – Application:

I can apply these verses to my life by trusting in the Lord to take care of me even when I am in the scariest of situations. I am reassured that the Lord hears me when I cry out to him, he is close to me when my heart is broken; which is defined as, “having your spirit depressed or crushed by grief or despair.”

P – Prayer:

Father I thank you for your love. Thank you for hearing our cry for help and rescuing us when we are in trouble. You are our Savior, our Lord, and our redeemer. Thank you for forgiving us for our sins, even when we lack faith and trust – allowing us to learn through our experiences so that we can serve you and others better. In Jesus name, amen.

Does God Hear My Prayers?

Does God Hear My Prayers?

S – Scripture:

My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?… Every day I call to you, my God, but you do not answer….” ~Psalm 22:1-2

O – Observation:

David writes a song which is a prophesy (Ps 22:11-21) of the cry from Jesus at his crucifixion Mt 27:46

J. Vernon McGee: listen to this nine-and-a-half minute teaching about the prophesy of Jesus’ death on the cross.

Henry Blackaby’s devotion:

Who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear. ~Hebrews 5:7

“The life of Jesus provides the model for our prayer lives. God is seeking to mold us into the image of His Son (Col. 1:27-28). If we are to act like Christ, our prayer lives must be conformed to His. Many Christians are unwilling to pay the price that Jesus paid when it comes to interceding with God. Jesus’ prayers came with vehement cries and tears and, because of His godly fear, He was heard by the Father.”

“Why then, did the Father refuse His request? It was not due to any sin in Jesus’ life, nor was it because the Father did not love His Son. The Father said no, despite the unfathomable love He had for His Son, because He  knew He could not spare His Son and save a world. Likewise, the Lord cannot always spare you and your family and complete His redemptive work in those around you.”

A – Application:

As I listened to Dr. McGee’s teaching on this scripture and Blackaby’s devotion on the scripture of Heb 5:7 – I am persuaded that there are times that we will feel abandoned by God, and this may not be due to sin in our lives or sin in the lives of those we pray for, but that it may be God’s will for our prayers not to be answered at the time that we ask.

Blackaby says: “Are you willing for God to deny your pleadings? Will you intercede with the Father so deeply and intimately that even in the midst of your tears you are able to say, “Nevertheless, not my will but thine be done?” The Father will always relate to you out of the context of His love for a lost world. Has God said no to one of your requests recently? Accept His answer. Have you been learning obedience through what you have suffered (Heb. 5:8)? If you have, God may choose to make you a source of salvation to others even as He did with His Son.”

P – Prayer:

Thank you Father for your love and patience, your forgiveness, your grace. I ask that you hear my cry as I pray for the lives of those who do not know you, that they will come to know you in a personal relationship. I pray for those who claim to be your children that they will delve in your Word to seek your wisdom and guidance and share your saving grace with all whom they embrace.  Let your will be done.

Reading: Exodus 2:11-3:22, Matt 17:10-27, Psalm 22:1-18, Proverbs 5:7-14
