Psalm 107:19-20

Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble; He saved them from their distress. He sent His word and healed them; He rescued them from the Pit.

If there was ever a time when we need to be saved from distress, healed from diseases, and rescued from the snares of the enemy, it is now. I find great comfort in knowing that regardless of how impossible and frightening my world may get, I can still cry out to a God who hears and acts. When I can’t do anything, He is in control of everything. I’ve come to call this act of faith as “leaning.”

If you are going to cry about your situation – and sometimes that is all you can do – cry out to God. He has been faithful to His people in the past, and we know He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Rely upon His faithfulness to see you through dark circumstances, and rest in the knowledge that He is handling it. When you don’t have answers to your questions, lean into your faith in a God who is working it all out for your good.

From these verses, we see that God saved, He sent His word, and He rescued. We have to stop trying to save ourselves and come up with our own answers when we really don’t have any. Some circumstances are sent into our lives to get us to give up self-effort and look up to a Savior. When He moves on our behalf, we often find His will and His direction coming with His action.

If you are all out of answers today and in desperate need of a solution, cry out to God. He is doing something you cannot understand at the moment but will reveal in time. He is an expert at using the enemy’s attacks for your good, so let Him do His perfect work. He will save you from your distress, send His word to heal you, and rescue you from the pit. He is God, and that is His job. Let your faith lean upon His faithfulness.

Have a blessed day!
