Psalm 120:1 ” I call on the Lord in my distress, and He answers me.”

When we cry out to the Lord in the time of some critical or chronic need…what do we want?  We want the situation to change.  Whatever it is has us controlled, restrained, or limited in some way, and we want God to come to our aid.  Psalm 118:5 tells us, “In my anguish I cried to  the Lord, and He answered me by setting me free.”  In Job 36:16 this idea is repeated that God, in my distress, will set my feet in a spacious place.  Now the need may or may not miraculously disappear…but God promises that our minds can be set free from the emotional anguish and misery that have us hemmed in… when we call on Him.
