What problems feel overwhelming to you todayeither in your own life or
in the world?
God invites us to be honest with Him about the suffering we see and
experience, and to cry out to Him. God hears the prayers of His people, and
He does help. He parted the Red Sea to save the Israelites (Exodus 14:29),
and His Son came to earth to save everyone who would believe in Him. Jesus
is the Light of the World, and the darkness can never overcome Him (John
1:4-5; 8:12). How might remembering the ways God has revealed His power and
love in the past give us hope to bring our concerns to Him in the present?
Hasten, O God, to save me; come quickly, Lord, to help me. Psalm 70:1 (NIV)
