Weariness, trouble, and suffering are unwelcome visitors. Yet they bring with them a gift. They have at times caused a Christian to call out to God when that same Christian may have been silent or comfortable in apathy. So CH Spurgeon says,
And so I wonder what it is for you this afternoon that resonates with our psalm reading today. Know this, Christian, that in your distress you may not only call out to God but know that he answers. And know that your request to be delivered has already been answered. There is a rock and a foundation to which the Lord brings us in trial. It is none other than salvation in his Jesus, the Christ.
Could God give you a greater gift this afternoon than to cause you to cry out for help and then to certainly bring you to Christ?
