Out of the Depths

As we spend time with the Lord and get to know Him better, we get to know ourselves better, too. When I examine my own soul, my own needs, my own person and I’m with Him in communion, I can cry to Him from the very depth of my soul.

I love the way Psalm 130 begins: “Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord.” That could be interpreted several different ways. It could be a cry out of deep despair. Maybe it comes out of deep thought. Or perhaps it’s from the depth of need.

Wherever we are, we can look to God. He is our resource, our strength, our shield. He is our “ever-present help” in times of trouble (see Psalm 46:1). He is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Scripture promises all of those things, and God invites us to turn to Him.

Wherever you are today, whatever your need is today, cry out to Him: “Lord, I have nowhere else to go! I turn to You, God. Help me! I want to know Your presence and power.”

Be honest with Him. Talk to Him just as you would talk to your best friend. You will find there is no friend like Jesus.

“Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge” (Psalm 62:8).
