There isn’t anyone too far gone or too far away for the Lord to reach. Just look at the four groups of people mentioned in this psalm.
Group 1: vs 4-9
The people wandered aimlessly without any place to call home. No place to belong. They were hungry, weary, and thirsty. They cried out to the Lord and He led them to a home, filled them with good things, and satisfied the longing in their souls.
Group 2: vs 10-16
The people are living in darkness, experiencing affliction, and enslaved because of their rebellion. They cried out to the Lord and He brought them out of the darkness, broke their chains, and set them free.
Group 3: vs 17-22
The people suffered affliction because of their sinful ways. They no longer found enjoyment in food and no longer had a desire for nourishment. They were at death’s door and cried out to the Lord. He sent His Word and it brought healing and deliverance.
Group 4: vs 23-32
The people were going about their business and encountered a terrible storm. It caused them to feel afraid and helpless. They cried out to the Lord and He calmed the storm and guided them to safety.
Whether we are experiencing loneliness, affliction, illness, or storms – we can cry out to the Lord (vs 6, 13, 19, 28.) His ear is open to our cry and his love for us is steadfast.
