When we call out to God, He answers!

cry out

Today I was reading one of my favorite Psalms and I was led to share this message for everyone to reflect on. The good news is that even when we have messed things up at one time or another and if we call out to God, He will always hear us. How easily God could tell us, “That is your problem. You deal with it.” But when people cry out to Him, He is always ready to answer!

“When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them.” Psalm 91:15

How valuable is a relationship with God? More than words can ever fully describe. However, in Psalm 91, the Lord gives us a list of some of the things He will do for those who call upon Him: And I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation.” Psalms 91:15-16 (NKJV) Let’s break this down and specifically look at these benefits that belong to those who call upon the Lord.

First, we see that there’s the promise of responsiveness. God says, “I will answer.” Few things are worse than waiting for a response to an e-mail , text or voice message that never comes. Nobody appreciates feeling like they’ve fallen through the cracks. But God’s not like that. He answers when we call.

Second, the Lord promises to accompany us through our times of trouble. He’s not a fair-weather friend who ditches or bails when we’re going through rough times. He sticks by us through good times and bad, through thick and thin.

Third, we find that He not only stays with us through our trials but will also deliver us from them. He isn’t just a shoulder to lean on, He can actually effect change on our behalf! We could go on and on.

He also promises to honor us, to sustain us with longevity, to satisfy us with a quality of life we could never find on our own, and to reveal His salvation to us, which extends into eternity. The benefits of our relationship with God literally never end. He responds, He accompanies, He delivers, He honors, He sustains, He satisfies, and He saves. That’s a relationship there’s just no substitute for. Lord, thank you for allowing us to have a relationship with You and for being all that You are in our lives!

Think about it… What does this passage reveal to me about God? What does this passage reveal to me about myself? Based on this, what changes do I need to make? What is my prayer for today?  Call out to him now!

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
