Cry Out to God

Read

Job 5:1-7:21

Think

Job 6:1-3, “Then Job replied: ‘If only my anguish could be weighed and all my misery be placed on the scales! It would surely outweigh the sand of the seas — no wonder my words have been impetuous.’”At times, you might be tempted to think you have to have it all together BEFORE approaching God in prayer or worship. He is King of kings, and to pray with an attitude of respect and honor is definitely fitting. But He is also our Heavenly Father and desires for us, His children, to cry out to Him when we are in need.Picture a young boy outside with his father. If he finds himself in trouble or gets frustrated, there is no hesitancy — he impulsively calls out! He doesn’t weigh his words carefully and evaluate what he’ll say before he speaks. He trusts his father. And, depending on the situation, his father responds immediately, or he watches him struggle for a moment, knowing there is a lesson to be learned.Whatever you are going through, call out to God — even if your words come out in a nonsensical jumble. He loves you, hears you, and will walk with you through whatever you’re facing.
