What would you do if you fell into a well? You would raise your arms and cry out for help with all your might, wouldn’t you?
You can do the same thing when you find yourself in bottomless suffering that seems like an invisible well… lift your arms to God and call out to Him for help.
He will not be slow to save you. In the Bible, we read this: “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles.” (Psalm 34:17)
Are you righteous? Will God hear you if you cry out to Him? Yes, you are righteous because you believe that Jesus died on the cross for you, and His blood justifies you… in other words, makes you righteous. Yes, God will hear you when you cry out to Him because you are His child.
Because you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, when you cry out to God, He hears you and delivers you out of all your troubles.
If you’d like, you can pray with me right now… “Lord, You who know me, You who know everything I’m going through…You who see the depth, the width, of the well of my distress…it’s to You I cry out today. I ask You to intervene! Take me out of this situation (name your situation). Place my feet on the rock so that the soil beneath my feet is firm. May I waver, doubt, and fear…no longer! May I be solid, firm, and strong in You, Lord. In Jesus’s powerful name, amen.”
Thanks for existing!
