Then Hezekiah and all the people rejoiced over how God had prepared the people, for it had come about suddenly.
2 CHRONICLES 29:36 (CSB)

_____________________________________________________________________________

 

Call on me in a day of trouble; 
I will rescue you, and you will honor me.

(Psalm 50:15)

And call for help when you’re in trouble—
I’ll help you, and you’ll honor me.

(The Message)

Sometimes we pray and pray and pray and nothing seems to happen in response. It is as if our prayers bounce off of heaven and back to earth. Now and then, our Father in heaven answers so quickly and so well that all we can do is praise him, thank him, and give him the tearful, joyful worship he is due. 

There is no formula for why things sometimes work out slowly, if at all, and why things sometimes work out suddenly. There is simply our Father’s instruction here. 

First, “Call on me in a day of trouble.” It is important to keep this first thing first. When trouble comes, escort it into the presence of God. There is nothing too big or too dramatic for him. Agree with God about the nature of the problem. Seek his wisdom. Ask for his intervention. 

Second, trust God to do what only he can do. Know that he hears you and will answer better than you ask. God will help you. He may help you in the same manner you expect. He may help you in some manner completely different from what you expect, but also perfectly applicable to the need of the moment. 

Third, honor God. This works in two ways. We honor God when we trust him to hear and answer our urgent prayers. We honor God when we give him thanks, praise, and worship when he answers our prayers. We honor God when we live attuned to his heart and aligned to his path. 

The Bible is full of sudden answers to simple prayers. Check out Nehemiah’s experiences. Hezekiah and Judah experienced God’s sudden answers. My bride and I added another to our list yesterday. 

Keep Psalm 50:15 handy. Trouble will keep coming back for as long as you live. The good news is that God’s love endures forever and he hears and answers our prayers.

I will call on God for help when I experience trouble.

Our Father, your sudden intervention takes away our breath, brings tears to our eyes, and stimulates songs of praise and thanksgiving. How wonderful you are! How amazing is your grace! I will worship you. Amen.

Daily D – Ezekiel 43:1-5

Ezekiel 43:1-5 He led me to the gate, the one that faces east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of a huge torrent, and the earth shone with his glory. The vision I saw was like the one I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and like the ones I had seen by the Chebar Canal. I fell facedown. The glory of the Lord entered the temple by way of the gate that faced east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Daily D – Ezekiel 37:3

Ezekiel 37:3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I replied, “Lord God, only you know.”

Daily D – Ezekiel 36:26-27

Ezekiel 36:26, 27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place my Spirit within you and cause you to follow my statutes and carefully observe my ordinances.”

Daily D – Psalm 40:6-8

Psalm 40:6-8
You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;
you open my ears to listen.
You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering. Then I said, “See, I have come;
in the scroll it is written about me.
I delight to do your will, my God,
and your instruction is deep within me.”

Daily D – Psalm 39:4-5

Psalm 39:4, 5
“LORD, make me aware of my end
and the number of my days
so that I will know how short-lived I am.
In fact, you have made my days just inches long,
and my life span is as nothing to you.
Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor.”
Selah
