When the poor and needy search for water and there is none, and their tongues are parched from thirst, then I, the Lord, will answer them. I, the God of Israel, will never abandon them.
Series: The Book of Isaiah
God has been a faithful friend for everybody that lean on Him and have chosen to put their trust on Him.
In Isaiah 41:17, God is speaking to us saying if you are in a place where you are poor and needy and really need the presence of God to invade your life, then cry to Him.
The bible says the poor and needy searched for water and they found none and their tongues were parched from thirst. God says that He is going to wait for the time when you give up on people that you are trusting upon, when you give up on your efforts, till you exhaust everything that you are depending upon, and then the bible says the Lord will answer them.
The shortest way to get your prayers answered from God is to give up on your self efforts, else you are just wasting your time.
Make it a point in your life in giving up on things that you are holding on to and stop leaning on yourself. If you think your bible reading, your prayer and your dedication can bring heaven down then you are wrong. You need God to open up His heart and His presence in such a measure that you cannot contain it.
You may be having a need in your life, it may be finances, relationships, problems or anything or even for the overflow presence of God, whatever it may be, stop your efforts and just come into His presence and let Him do it for you.
This the promise of God that He will never abandon you!
