Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.      Psalms 50:15

Did you know that you bring glory to God by calling upon Him when you are in distress? God promised He would deliver you if you turned to Him. You deny the Lord honor that is rightfully His every time you find yourself in difficulty and you fail to call upon Him for help! There may be times when God allows you to reach a point of need so that you can call upon Him, and thus let Him demonstrate to a watching world the difference He makes in the lives of His children. If God never allowed you to experience need, people around you might never have the opportunity to witness God’s provision in the life of a Christian. If you never faced a shortfall, you might be tempted to feel self-sufficient and without any need of God in your daily life.

Pride will tempt you to think that you do not need to seek God’s assistance. Self-regard will seek to convince you that you can handle your dilemma through your own wisdom, resources, and hard work. Pride will also rob glory from God and seek to give it to you. Don’t allow your pride to take what rightfully belongs to the Lord. Call upon your Lord and wait exclusively upon Him to rescue you. Then give Him the glory that He deserves.

Self-sufficiency can greatly hinder your ability to experience God and bring Him honor. The next time you are in distress, turn to Him!

    I’ve been calling but have to rely on others to bail me out. I’ve checked my heart for sin. My 16 year old daughter isn’t a believer and scoffs at “God” helping us. I believe the scriptures and dm waiting on Him

    This is such a good word for me in general, and especially with something I am struggling with right now. That calling upon the Lord glorifies Him when I can struggle with thinking I have to “do it on my own” to prove I am not weak, changes several things! Thank you and thank you Lord for your truth that saves.

    Holy Jesus, I always need and want you in my life…I want to be continually with You and near You. I know that you are Onipresent…and I call upon you and sing worship song to you… just to be near you…

    All Praise, Honor and Glory is Yours Lord Jesus…

    We need to be aware of “false humility”….the feeling that we don’t want to “bother” God will our small struggles….it never offends our heavenly father to turn to him with our needs…and to thank Him for his response…no matter what it is.

    No, I did not know that I bring glory unto GOD, when calling on HIM
    in distress.

    Yes, I will not allow my pride to take what rightfully belongs to the LORD.

    Yes, I will call upon the LORD and wait exclusively for the LORD to rescue me.

    Next, I will give all praise and honor to the LORD.

    For HE is worthy to be praised.

    Thank GOD for JESUS!!!!
