IF ONLY YOU WILL CRY OUT
Matthew 14:29-31 (30) – But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted. (NLT)
In today’s Bible reading, Peter was walking on the sea when the wind became turbulent enough that he began to sink. But he never pretended to be alright. He screamed: “Lord, save me!” Immediately, Jesus stretched out his hand and rescued him. Proverbs 18:10 says, “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” Regardless of the nature of your situation, don’t keep quiet when you can pray to God. There is safety available to anyone who will call on Jesus.
On the other hand, to attract God’s attention, you must get to the point where you have no alternative source of help, like the man at the Pool of Bethesda who said to Jesus: “I have no one to help me into the pool…” (John 5:7). This man got his healing because he was desperate and spoke out. Often times, desperation leads to manifestation. When you are sinking in the ocean of sorrows, confusion, loneliness, stagnation, and marital crisis, your desperation in prayer can be the passport to your breakthroughs. Cry out to God with all your heart, and He will hear you.
You can also speak to trusted people who can be of help and guidance to you. A sealed mouth is a closed destiny. Don’t be quiet!
Hymn: I Must Tell Jesus — Elisha A. Hoffman (1894)
