Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

So God heard their groaning, and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. – Ex 2:24

When God hears, He remembers. When we cry out to Him, He focuses His attention on the concern that causes us to cry out. To cry out means to “call out for help” (Strong’s #2199).  If the children of Israel had never cried out, God could not have heard their groanings and responded accordingly!

God wants to hear your complaints. In fact, if you want God to act on your behalf, He needs to hear your complaints! God tells us, “Put Me in remembrance; let us contend together; state your case, that you may be acquitted” (Is 43:26). God doesn’t want you to face life’s trials and tribulations on your own; He wants to contend with you and fight for you!

What are you going through? What’s frustrating you? Have you cried out to God about your situation? Let it all out. Get in your room, shut the door, and scream at the top of your lungs! Call out to God. Praise Him and thank Him in advance for His help. Then, watch Him respond by profoundly impacting your situation for the better.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. – Phil 4:6-7


Father, You always care about what I’m going through. Whenever I cry out to You, You are faithful to listen. I know You hear my prayers and mount an attack on my behalf. Thank You!
