HE HEARS WHEN YOU CRY
Text: Ps 145:19 – He fulfils the desires of those who fear Him; He hears their cry for help and rescue them (New Living Translation).
No parent will hear the cry of his child for help and fails to come to the child’s rescue. If we can do that, what of our heavenly Father, who gave His only Son and is willing to give us all things (Matthew 7:11 and Lk. 11:13)? The purpose and intent of God when He created man was to enjoy life in a serene atmosphere. However, when man sinned he lost the privilege but God in His love made an alternative provision for us in the death of Jesus. From then He declared that He would answer us and provide for our needs.
Fulfilling the desires of those who fear Him (those who reverence his name and his law) according to Treasury of David Commentary means that “Inasmuch as they have respect unto his will, he will have respect unto their will. They shall have their way for they have his way in their hearts. A holy heart only desires what a holy God can give, and so its desire is filled full out of the fullness of the Lord. He also will hear their cry, and will save them.” Do you reverence the name of God and honour His word? Do you obey the laws of God? These are the ways God can hear you quickly when you call upon Him
The Palmist knows and he tells us today. Do you know or believe that? If you know, why are you down and out? Why stay mourning? If you have been asking and no response, cry and He will certainly answer. He is not evil like us. He cares for us. Just fear Him and cry to Him concerning that need (Psalm 25:14, Psalm 33:18, Psalm 34: 9, Psalm 85:9 and Luke 1:50).
Food for Thought: Can you hear the cry of your child and keep quiet?
1) Thank God, who hears our cry and comes to our rescue
2) Pray God will make you fear Him that it might be well with you.
3) Cry to God concerning the burden of your heart and about family.
