A Woman in Distress

Dr. Frederick J. Colombo

Distress is defined as trouble, danger, difficulty, misfortune, hardship, trial, upset, disturbance, affliction, torment, stress, and worry.
 
2 Kings 4:1 Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the LORD: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen.
 
The woman in this Old Testament account lost her husband and her two sons were in danger of being taken away to the creditors to fulfill a debt. Are you experiencing distress in your life feeling like you are between a rock and a hard place? We have all been there and we all look for relief in those moments. God desires that we cry out to Him even when we have lost all understanding of the trial and tribulation we are experiencing. He hears the cry of the human heart and promises to send help to comfort and heal our broken spirit.
 
Psalm 4:1 When I call, give me answers. God, take my side! Once, in a tight place, you gave me room; Now I’m in trouble again: grace me! hear me! (Message)

Psalm 18:6 In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

Psalm 118:5 I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place.
Psalm 118:5 Pushed to the wall, I called to GOD; from the wide open spaces, he answered. (Message)

Psalm 120:1 In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me.
 
This sermon demonstrates the love of God and how He sends others into our life to hear our hearts cry and bring healing to our soul. God orders our steps and through providence and divine destiny dispatches heavenly help to lift the burdens and distress of life. Please don’t lose hope but call upon God in your moment of need and He will hear your cry.
