"" Samuel CRIED TO THE LORD for Israel and the Lord answered him."" (1 Samuel 7:9)
All through the Bible we see God's people coming to points of desperation. And then they cry out.
GOD ALWAYS HEARS
It is an undeniable reality that God responds to the cry of His children just as you would hear the cry of yours. A mom or dad can be 100 yards away in a park, but their child's cry sounds like it is right next to them. And, they go running to meet the need. What parent would not respond to the despairing cry of their children?
If ever there was a moment in America when we needed to cry out, it is now.
God will hear and answer. He really will, just as He has done throughout history and just as He has promised. But there are prerequisites that precede a cry.
Are you crying out? Daily, incessantly, unwavering in your faith? If not, why not? And if not now, when?

The omnipresence of God is a reality (that God is everywhere all the time). “Where can I go from Thy Spirit?” David said (Psalm 139). And, since the coming of Christ and Pentecost, which was the sending of His indwelling Spirit to all who believe, the true follower of Christ is assured that Christ will never leave them nor forsake them personally. Once the Spirit comes to reside in the believing heart, He is there permanently.
But, it is possible to have our head turned by the world, the flesh, and the devil. We can quench and grieve the Spirit who lives within us. We can ignore Him or resist His leadership. If we do so, we will lose the conscious awareness of His presence. We will begin to operate on our own, not walking by the Spirit, and the results are always disastrous. We get what our humanity brings. Like an unseen guest standing in the shadows, He is still present, but not prominent.
