I’ve been hooked on the book of Isaiah lately. I mean it’s all about the salvation and coming of the Lord, how awesome is that? Check out this verse…it still gives me shivers.
Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer;
you shall cry, and he will say, ‘Here I am.’
— Isaiah 58:9
The past few weeks have been rough. A lot of things have been bringing me down & it is exhausting having to pick myself back up time & time again. I’ve been having a hard time truly trusting in God & believing that He was even listening to me…& then I stumbled upon this verse. After reading I realized I wasn’t really even talking to God. I expected Him to know what was wrong & fix it and even know though God is all-knowing I wasn’t casting my cares upon Him & using prayer effectively. One night I literally cried out to Him & poured out everything that was troubling my heart. Afterward I felt like this huge weight had been lifted off me because I had finally had a sincere conversation with my Lord & I don’t know if I can honestly say I’ve ever done that before in my life.
It’s amazing to see firsthand God’s word having an impact on my life. Just taking what he says and living it. He did answer me when I cried out to him. I knew he was there & was going to take care of me. I’m blessed to have such a merciful and loving Father.
