268- Loud Crying
to the Lord
April 18, 1987
I was led to Psalm 107:27-32 with Bible subtitle:
“to those who are overwhelmed”–
They reeled and staggered like a drunken man,
and were at their wits’ end.
Then THEY CRIED TO THE LORD IN THEIR TROUBLE,
And He brought them out of their distresses.
He caused the storm to be still,
So that the waves of the sea were hushed.
Then they were glad because they were quiet;
So He guided them to their desired haven.
Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness,
And for His wonders to the sons of men!
Let them extol Him also in the congregation of the people,
And praise Him at the seat of the elders.
Last week, God gave me this last week when Stevie was sick with a high fever and I was reading to him:
In the days of His flesh, He offered up both prayers and supplications WITH LOUD CRYING AND TEARS TO THE ONE ABLE TO SAVE HIM from death, and was heard because of His piety. Hebrews 5:7
I feel like God is telling me that our part, when overwhelming circumstances and trials come, is loud crying and tears to the Lord, and He will hear and answer and act.
