The cry of the poor

cry

Whether it is the cry of someone in poverty of resources, or the cry of someone in spiritual poverty or the cry of someone poor in spirit as we would describe it today – a humble heart toward God — God hears the cry of the poor.

When they cry, we cry.  Rest assured, as much as I know God sees the tears, He wants me to engage with Him and so as I cry my prayer is still — God I thank you with all of my heart that You are a God who does marvellous works.  It is You God who will support my right and my cause because You are the one who sits on the throne and You judge right.  You God are my high tower, not just any tower, but a high tower that keeps me safe when I’m oppressed and in times of trouble.

For those of us who know the name of God, we put our trust only in HIm for He never forsakes those who seek Him.  He never forgets the cry of the poor.
