I don’t know what those who might be reading today’s post in “Coffee with the Lord” might be facing… It may be desperate! In my Bible reading this morning one of the passages I read was Psalm 88. It is traditionally attributed to Heman the Ezrahite and is a psalm of the sons of Korah. Heman was facing death and didn’t know what to do… The situation was desperate!! He did the right thing, it seems to me… He prayed! He cried out to God!!
Here it is in his own words… “O Lord, the God who saves me, day and night I cry out before You! May my prayer come before You; turn Your ear to my cry! For my soul is full of trouble and my life draws near the grave!” (From Psalm 88:1-3 NIV)
I only hope that when I’m facing a desperate situation – even if it is one of my own making – I have the good sense to “cry out to God!” Just let me urge you to do the same… The Lord hears! The Lord answers! The Lord helps and delivers those who cry out Him! Just do it! (And if you’ll let me know your need, I’ll join you! I cry out to God with you!)
