God's Words For US
by Cecelia Lester
To you I call, O LORD my Rock:
Do not turn a deaf ear to me.

David calls out to the LORD. He desires that God hear him. He fears that if God remains silent, he will be forsaken like those who have gone to the grave. At times, we who follow Jesus must call out to Him. Sometimes, it is for a circumstance we face. Other times we must call out to Him on behalf of a friend who has insurmountable issues.

We have a lot to live up to if we desire to show the LORD's love to this hurting world.
