Anchoring Truths from God's Word

July 20, 2020

In My Distress

Many of us have come to a point in our life where we feel like we can't go on. We might have felt like there was no point in living, no joy in life, and no one to help us. David had a similar experience when King Saul was hunting him to kill him; however, David cried out to God for help. In this verse, it says that God heard David. This is an excellent example of what Christians should do when they feel distressed. Cry out to God. He will always hear you and wants to help you. God wants us to get to the point where we understand we can't do anything in our strength. He wants us to surrender to Him and let Him bear our burdens. So, whenever you feel like you can't do anything, remember that there is only One who can and wants to help you.

Key Verse

In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.
