Isaiah 58: 7-8
Is this not the fast that I have chosen:
To loose the bonds of wickedness,
To undo the heavy burdens,
To let the oppressed go free,
And that you break every yoke?
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,
And that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out;
When you see the naked, that you cover him,
And not hide yourself from your own flesh?
Then your light shall break forth like the morning,
Your healing shall spring forth speedily,
And your righteousness shall go before you;
The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.

DECEMBER 2017 : : I cried out, The Lord Answered Me

The warfare of the enemy is seasonal; but the favour of God upon our lives is eternal and therefore the devil or his cohorts cannot hold down anyone forever.

When a believer understands the grace coverage of God upon their lives then he/she is able to stand against the wiles of the enemies because the favour of God declares and his power demonstrates which gives him the confidence and assurance to cry out to the Lord.

Psalm 56: 9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.

Crying out is a form of prayer but from a deep sense of urgency and a need to have an immediate response.
Prayer is a communication tool; this tool is what man uses to communicate with a divine Father. In prayer we can
• Give thanks
• Plead
• Intercede
• Converse
Key: it is a two way communication, speaking and listening to God

Throughout history, believers have cried out, sometimes out of many years of prayer and then a single cry out brings an urgent response from God. Personally we cry out to draw immediate attention to a specific thing.

A cry out is a spontaneous response to an urgent need usually centred on one thing such as
• Immediate specific need
• It could be motivated by an immediate danger
• It could be a response to pain or hurt
• It could be response to an accomplishment or joyful act
• A reaction to heart-breaking news

***Biblically a cry out is an intense petition, response to a sense of desperation. ***

 It comes from the depth of the heart
 It acknowledges that we are facing danger
 We become fearful
 We recognise our need for God’s supernatural power to work
 We cry out in faith
 We need the mercy of God
 We recognise our helplessness and inability to do something ourselves.

There are powerful results from crying out unto God, because He responses to a desperate and dependent child in need of His care, attention and Power. The prophet Isaiah expresses the response of the Lord to the affection a mother would have for her nursing child and points out that even though the earthly mother may not answer but the Lord would answer to our cry out because we are the apple of His eye and He has inscribed our names on the Palms of His hands.

Isaiah 49: 15
“Can a woman forget her nursing Child, and not have compassion on the son of her womb? …

***God is not human, that he should lie, not a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfil? ***

There are various forms of Crying out.
• A cry of deep distress (Zaaq-Hebrew) , At the red sea, the people of Israel cried out in distress (See Nehemiah 9:9-11; Psalm 9:12)
• A cry out for help (Tsaaq-Hebrew), Moses cried out for help to locate water the Israelites (Exodus 15:25) Blind
Bartimaeus in the book of Mark 10:46-52
• A cry out frustration to change a position, Jaabz in the book of 1 Chronicles 4:10, cried to the Lord that the lord may change his name from pain and that he may bless him and expand his territory. (See also Mark 10:46-52 for the case of blind Bartimaeus.)
• Cry out of war against an enemy- 2 Chronicles 13:15
• A cry out to be saved- Psalm 145:19 He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.
• A cry out in fear –Apostle Peter in Matthew 14:25-31
• A cry out from affliction – Jonah 2: 1-10

Psalm 57: 2 I will cry unto God, God most high; unto God that perfometh all things for me.

Jonah 2: 2 (KJV)… I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the Lord, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice.

Crying out to God is an act of desperation and total concentration. It is a fervent expression of faith in God, Trust in his goodness and power to act on our behalf.

In Crying Out there must be
• Genuine humility and understanding that God is omnipotent
• The heart must be broken and contrite

*** The Lord resist the proud but gives victory to the humble. ***

Psalm 9:12 “…. He forgetteth not the cry of the humble”

• Genuine Repentance and we must seek forgiveness and totally surrender to the Lord.

Psalm 66:18 “if I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will hear me”

Psalm 51: 2 Wash me thoroughly from mine Iniquity and cleanse me from sin

• Mercy of God- Lamentations 3: 22-23

Psalm 102:13 Thou shalt arise and have mercy upon Zion; for the time to favour her, Yea, the set time is come.

Psalm 51: 1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness; according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
• Must be truthful to the situation and God.

John 4:24 God is Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and truth

• Trust Him to come through and act on your behalf

Psalm 3:3 But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, My glory and the one who lifts up my head. I cried to the Lord with voice, and he heard me from His Holy Hill.
• Faith in God’s power and resources- you must accept that only God can do what no man can do.
Jesus said with men it is impossible but with God all things are possible. When the disciples cried out in the storm, he rebuked the storm. – Matthew 8:25
• A cry out denotes desperation and a need for urgency in answer from God.

***God’s word is yes and amen in Christ Jesus***

Confirmation that God will answer our cry out:

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me and I will answer thee and show thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not

2 Chronicles 20:20 …. Jehosphat stood and said “Listen to me, O Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem, put your trust in the Lord your God and you will be established….

Luke 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily…

God’s response to crying out
• Elijah cried out and God delivered the son of the widow from death – 1 Kings 17: 20-22
• Jehosphat cried out and God diverted the enemy away from him - 2 Chronicles 18:31
• Hezekiah cried out and God gave him victory – 2 Chronicles 32: 20-21

As children of the living God, our heavenly Father appeals to us cry out to Him deliverance. Let us be quick to cry out Him with humility, sincerity and faith.
God “will fulfil the desire of them that fear Him: He will also hear their cry, and will save them” – Psalm 145:19

Hosea 2:21 It shall come to pass in that day, that I will answer ‘says the Lord; I will answer the heavens, and they will answer the earth. The earth shall with grain, with new wine and with oil…

This day may the Lord answer your cry and fulfil all your petitions before him, may He speedily declare His victory for you in the name of Yesuha HaMashiach.

Please accept our apologies if you had not received the word for a couple of months, we hope in the New Year to me prompt and timely sending it out. Remain blessed and enjoy the season.

>May the good Lord bless you and give you a net breaking testimony in the coming year in the name of Jesus. Amen

Yours in Christ Jesus
