My Dear Brothers and Sisters, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today, is from the book of Deuteronomy 26:7-8 “Then we cried out to the Lord the God of our ancestors, and the Lord heard our voice, and saw our misery toil and oppression.”
From the above context we learn that Jacob went with his wives and children, cattle and sheep to settle in Egypt when his son, Joseph was the governor there. Then they were few in number, and there Jacob became a great nation mighty and populous. But the Egyptians mistreated them and laid hard bondage, on them. They were poor, despised, oppressed, people in Egypt. So they cried unto the Lord, God of their fathers, and the Lord heard their voice and looked on their affliction, and their labour and their oppression. With great terribleness, and through the plagues that were inflicted on them, especially the slaying of their first born, God delivered his people who faced tremendous misery and treated as slaves in the land of Egypt. The Lord brought them out of Egypt, with a mighty hand, and with an out stretched arms, with great terror, and with signs and wonders. He brought them to a large land, a land flowing with milk and honey.
Just as God saw the affliction of the people of Israel, He has seen your misery and has heard your cry. He will bring you out of all your problems. When you share your problem with others they may laugh at you. You will not get any good solutions to your problem through them. They will only confuse you all the more. But when you call upon the name of the Lord, He will hear your cry and answer you speedily. You are precious in Gods sight. When you call unto Him in the time of your misery God will send forth His word, and deliver you. God says, Call upon Me in the day of trouble, I will deliver you and you shall glorify Me.
When the Israelites cried out to the Lord He sent forth His servant Moses to deliver them from their captivity. Similarly the Lord will send His angels to attend on you and rescue you from all your problems. God is always beside you, to save you, protect you, and keep you from all your woes. If you have Jesus by your side, nothing can shake you. All you have to do is to trust in the Lord, as the people of Israel did. They trusted in the Lord their God and cried out to Him. So the Lord delivered them from the hands of the cruel task masters. What is your problem that you are going through? Call upon the name of the Lord. He will answer you and you shall glorify Him.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord You know all our problems, our tears, and sorrows. Help us Lord when we call upon Your name. We will be thankful to you, when you hear our cry and rescue us from all our woes. Teach us to glorify your name and be grateful to You for the good things you have done in our life. Keep us as the apple of Your eye.
