Psalm 107:4-30
KJV:They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.

KJV:Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.

KJV:Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.

KJV:And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.

KJV:Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

KJV:For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.

KJV:Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron;

KJV:Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High:

KJV:Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and there was none to help.

KJV:Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses.

KJV:He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder.

KJV:Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men

KJV:For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.

KJV:Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.

KJV:Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.

KJV:Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.

KJV:He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

KJV:Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

KJV:And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.

KJV:They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;

KJV:These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.

KJV:For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.

KJV:They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.

KJV:They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit's end.

KJV:Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.

KJV:He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.

KJV:Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

Its a long passage, but let's look in verses 4-9, we see a set of persons who were wanderers, lost, hungry, thirsty and exhausted. These wanderers cried out to God and God made a way for them.

From verses 10-16, we see that this set of persons were in prison. God permitted it because they rebelled against His word. But in v13 they cried unto God and He saved them.

In verses 17-20, these people suffered affliction because of their rebellion and were close to death, but in verse 19, they cried out to God and He intervened.

Hebrews 5:7
KJV:Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared

Even Jesus in (Heb.5:7) offered fervent cries to God and He was heard.
What about you? If the son of God could cry out to God, how about you? What is stopping you? What are you waiting for? Why do you shut your mouth and die in silent?

Are you experiencing any unpleasant situation, e.g bondage to any bad habit, struggling with a particular sin, accused falsely, persecuted, afflicted etc. Are you the cause or is it externally caused? Don't be quiet and be crushed, cry out now to the one who alone can arrest the situation.

Crying out makes you occupy the position of one who is totally dependent on the ALL POWERFUL GOD. If you need to repent of any known sin, do so and He will forgive you and save you, just Cry out to God!

Stay blessed!
