Cry Out to God
Read Joel 1:14
This is such a poignant call in the Book of Joel in the middle of sin and idolatry and immorality among God’s people when they need to be restored to God, forgiven of sin, reconciled to God. They need revival and restoration. So, how does it come about?
- When is the last time you cried out to God? Why were you doing that?
- Do you have to be desperate to cry out to God? What does it look like to cry out to God and seek his will?
- We all need God’s mercy. How does crying out to God and God’s mercy go together?
When was the last time you fasted? Put aside food for a meal for a day, for however long God might lead and fast from food and say, “God, I need you more than this.” We need you. We are desperate for you more than we’re desperate for nourishment for our bodies. We’re desperate for your mercy as your people. And cry out to God. Do this individually. Cry out as a family. Do this in your church where they’re all together in small groups in your church, cry out to God.
