I cried out to God for help; I cried out to God to hear me. (Psalm 77:1 NIV)
The psalmist cried out dramatically, emphatically, and intensely. In the NKJV, there is a repetition of the phrase, “to God with my voice.” This suggests that again and again he cried out to God. From there, he makes an emotional move by drawing vivid word pictures to portray the desperation of his laments. Within these words, there is something said about God: God Himself pulled this writer’s eyelids back and all David could do was stay up, never finding sleep.
In Living in the In-Between Times, Pastor Ralph Douglas West brings the story of the Old Testament prophet Samuel to life, showing you how God speaks in your “in betweens” and what it looks like to live faithfully in these seasons of waiting and wondering.
