Cry Out to God

We have become like those over whom You have never ruled, Like those who were not called by Your name. Oh, that You would tear open the heavens and come down, That the mountains would quake at Your presence.

Isaiah 63:19 - 64:1 (NASB)

In my biblical counseling sessions, I often hear Christians complaining like many others: "Where is God in my situation?", "Should I continue to believe in Him to rescue me?" It's a question, albeit a heartbreaking one, that comes to mind for all of us when we go through difficulties over which we have no control. We always need to know if God sees us, hears us, and will act on our behalf.

This is a question that the people of Israel have asked themselves time and time again. In this situation, faced with the Babylonians who crushed them and reduced them to captivity, the people considered themselves a people that God no longer governed. They all felt abandoned by God. Their complaint caused the prophet Isaiah to cry out to God for their suffering. Reminding God of what He had done in the past, he explained to Him what would happen if He tore the heavens apart and came down to save His people.

I'm sure you sometimes have doubts and fears when you face circumstances over which you have no control. Instead of discouraging you, these circumstances should teach you how dependent you are on God. In Jesus Christ, God revealed Himself to us and showed us how important we are to Him. So if you feel lost in your situation, cry out to God with all your strength, He will not fail to answer you.

May the grace and the peace of God be with you all.
