I cry out to the LORD; I plead for the LORD’s mercy. I pour out my complaints before him and tell him all my troubles. When I am overwhelmed, you alone know the way I should turn.
Psalm 142:1-3 (NLT)

I wonder, when Peter wrote, “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you” if he didn’t have today’s verse in mind. King David knew what troubles were. From being a shepherd boy protecting his flock from wild animals, to being hunted like a fugitive by King Saul, David had his trials. As a King he dealt with war, famine, drought and the complaints of the people. But David also knew that God was the solution. He cried out to God, sharing his complaints and troubles. He pleaded for God’s mercy and received it over and over again. When he was overwhelmed he cried out to God because he was confident of this one thing, the Lord knew which way David needed to go. Today, in all your struggles, turn to God. Pour out your heart to Him. He will show you the way.

Dear Father, I need You. You know my troubles. You know my complaints. You also know the way I should turn. Help me, guide me, direct my path I pray. In Jesus’ name.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
