I Have Heard Your Cry
by Berni Dymet
Ex. 3:7-8 Then the LORD said, "I have observed the misery of my people who are in Egypt; I have heard their cry on account of their taskmasters. Indeed, I know their sufferings, and I have come down to deliver them from the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land to a good and broad land, a land flowing with milk and honey, to the country of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites.
I was at church the other Sunday and our Pastor Mick was just kicking off his sermon, when there was a blood curdling scream from the children's room which is some distance off. It was loud enough to stop us all in our tracks.
He immediately looked at his wife and said "that's one of ours" - she headed straight out to see what was going on.
Now to me - it just sounded like some kid screaming But to the child's father, it sounded like - well, like his child screaming. Funny how he knew instantly - he recognised his child's cry. I didn't have a clue.
Sometimes, we cry out to God and we're sure He didn't hear us. Absolutely positive. But nothing - nothing could be further from the truth. When we cry out - our Father always, always hears our cry. He can pick it our from all the noise. My Father knows my voice. Your father knows your voice.
He's heard our cry. He knows our sufferings. It's - well - it's a Dad thing.
