“The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles” (Psalm 34:17).Text — Psalm 34:17-19
While commenting on the Book of Psalms, Author Gene Taylor wrote: “While most of the Bible is God’s voice calling to His creatures, the book of Psalms is mankind’s voice raised to the Lord as the various writers express their personal feelings, desires, and needs, with the Spirit of God helping them to strike a chord with the heart of God.” The book of Psalms is not only a hymnbook, it is also a prayer book. It is dotted with the sighs and tears of men in anguish, men in trouble and men in distress. The Lord did not only acknowledge their cries but promised to hear the cries of all those who will pray. “He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he will also hear their cry, and will save them” (Psalm 145:19).
There is a place in God’s heart for the weeping Christian. Are you facing trials and temptations, anguish and agony; are you disturbed and distressed, afflicted and oppressed; are you poor and needy, sick and suffering? Cry unto the Lord, cry!
Are you poor and needy?
There is a place in God’s heart for the weeping Christian.
