"In my distress I cried unto the Lord, and HE heard me." - Psalm 120: 1
What is anguish? It is intense anxiety or distress, it is suffering, it is agony, it is deep pain caused by terrible evils like infirmities and struggles of life, it is torment, it is tribulation.
So let's stop to think now what has caused us distress, or is causing anguish right now. It is good that, in the midst of the walk, we have this stop to analyze ourselves.
We learn here that the God who created the heavens and the earth, created this infinite universe, that same God watches over those who trust in Him and also trust in His Word. Therefore, in the midst of anguish and despair, CLAME asking for help to your GOD. Scream loudly asking for help from the GOD present.
The promise in this Psalm is that HE will hear us. Even though we live among people who have lying lips and a deceitful tongue, who use destructive words like ember, people who live in permanent war and who do not know peace, people who breathe hatred, HE WILL HEAR US ... Hallelujah ...
"Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Is tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? " Romans 8:35
