Today’s reading II Samuel 20-22

II Samuel 22:7 In my distress I called upon the LORD, And cried to my God: And he did hear my voice out of his temple, And my cry did enter into his ears.

David called on the Lord when he got in deep trouble. God heard his prayer and as you read further in the psalm you find that God answered his prayers and blessed him.

We have a prayer hearing and prayer answering God! We are often in distress. We do not know where to turn. We get bitter and angry. We blame God instead of going to Him in prayer.

The answer for you today is to cast all your cares on Him because He cares for you! It is hard to do. We want so desperately to be in control. We at least want the illusion of control. God takes that from us often as He shows His power and work in our lives.

So if you are hurting, afraid, and do not know what to do I challenge you to call on the Lord who hears and answers prayer!
