Read: Psalm 18:1-6
When people go through distress, they tend to either share their problems or keep them bottled up inside. Your friends may not be able to find a solution for your problem, but God definitely has answers to your prayer. When you cry out to God in your sorrows, He hears your voice. God keeps track of your sorrows, He has collected your tears in a bottle and has recorded them in His book (Ps. 56:8). Ps. 18:6 says, “In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His temple, and my cry came before Him, even to His ears.”
When the Israelites were under Pharaoh’s rule, they were forced into bondage and in their bondage, their cried out to God (Exod. 2:23). God heard their cry, by appointing Moses. Their relief from bondage did not come right away. They had to wait, but God gave them deliverance as He promised to Abraham. Similarly, Hannah was childless and was taunted and made miserable by her husband Elkanah’s other wife Peninnah because of her barrenness (1 Sam. 1:6). She cried out to God to a point that Eli the high priest thought that she was drunk (1 Sam. 1:13). God answered her prayer by granting her Samuel, along with 5 children. Those who sow in tears will reap in joy (Ps. 126:5).
If you are in distress, do not worry. God sees your situation. Cry out to Him. He has answers for your prayers and He already has a solution to your problem in His hands. Your weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning (Ps. 30:5). So, “Cast your burdens unto Jesus, for He cares for you” (1 Pet. 5:7).
