Psalm 55:16

"As for me, I shall call upon God, And the LORD will save me." (NASB)


"As for me, I shall call upon (qara': cry out, call out, utter a loud sound, summon, invite, call for, commission) God, And the LORD will save (yasha`: deliver, help, preserve, salvation, avenging, defend, rescue, safe, victory, liberated, to give victory to) me."


As for me, I shall utter a loud cry and call out to God and He will deliver and give victory to me.


What a powerful statement! We cry out at football games and raise our voices to sing out at music concerts yet we rarely, if ever, cry out audibly to God. When the Word says “a loud sound that cries out”, I believe that it is to be taken literally. When you’re in need of rescuing, lay aside the awkwardness and call out to the Lord. In this call, He is summoned and invited to bring you absolute victory and deliverance. Today, let all of heaven and earth know that your victory resides in the Lord alone.

Yeah, I've always wondered what it would be like if, instead of a stadium filled with crazed hockey fans cheering for their team, there was a stadium filled with Christians cheering, and crying, and screaming out to God.
