The poor man cried, and the Lord heard him and saved him out of all his troubles. Psalm 34:6
We are poor.
Without God, we are covered in sin and poor in spirit.
Within ourselves, we lack everything.
Yes, God creates us with wisdom, strength, and certain talents, but without God’s power, our talents are human.
Subject to our emotional whims.
As ourselves, we cry out to God and He hears us.
Not only does He hear us, but the Bible reminds us He saves us from trouble!
Why does God care to hear us?
Because He created us and longs to have a relationship with us.
But He gave us the choice.
When we choose to recognize how poor we are without Him, He answers us, rescuing completely.
Apart from God, we are poor.
Naked and alone.
But with God, we are royalty, covered in His redemption and love.
And with God, we are rescued.
Acknowledge your need for your Savior, and He will immediately rush in, rescuing you from harm.
You might still have struggles or even extreme hardship in life, but with God by your side, you will not only survive the storms, but you will thrive.
Cry out to God.
He will hear you and save your little ‘ole self.
