May Day, May Day!

Article written by Brother Bledsoe

In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: He heard my voice out of His temple, and my cry came before Him, even into His ears.
Psalm 18:6

May Day is the international distress signal.  If the pilot of an airplane says, “May Day, May Day, we are going down!” all emergency services are put on alert. Immediately search planes are sent out with the hope of rescuing the occupants of the plane.

Have you ever proverbially cried, “May Day” to the Lord of glory? The Psalmist said, “In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God.” He sent up a distress signal to the One who could come to His rescue.  Many times over, David had to call upon the Lord for wisdom and rescue because he was facing enemies who wanted to destroy him.  Every time he called, God was there to help.  He said, “He heard my voice.”

He Has Not Changed

Don’t you know that in your distress that you can also cry, “May Day, May Day, to the Lord?  Don’t you know that He will hear your cry? Don’t you know that He knows your situation before you call out to Him? Don’t you know that He will come to your rescue? Think about the times that He has already helped you in your times of distress.  He has not changed; neither has He grown old, tired and weak.  He is still able to answer your cry.  Do you remember these words? “Pass me not O gentle Savior, hear my humble cry; while on others thou art calling, do not pass me by.  Savior, Savior, hear my humble cry; while on others thou are calling, do not pass me by.”

He hears your cry and He will never pass you by.  Believe it and be blessed.
