Genesis 21:16 (NIV) ~ God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there.”

Genesis 21:16 (NIV) ~ God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there.” 

Heaven is moved by the cry of child. The prayers of children can move the God of the universe into action, where He will send angels to their aid. There are only a few recorded times in Scripture when God speaks from heaven, albeit from the voice of an angel. God, like a loving Father, is always attentive to the cry of His children. He will, if needed, move all of heaven into action for you when you cry out to Him. 

Hagar and her son Ishmael had run out of water and had almost given up, when Ishmael cried out to the Lord. When you get to the point where your cup is dry and you are weary and at the point of almost giving up, hold on for help is on its way. God will not only refresh you and fill your cup, but like Hagar and Ishmael, He will show Himself to be EL SHADDAI, the God who is more than enough.

For when the water skin of Hagar and Ishmael ran dry, God gave not just a fresh skin of water, but a well of water to draw from. 

My friend, heaven is moved by the cry of a child of the living God. There is power in the prayers of your children. Your heavenly Father is listening to the cries of His children and will come to your rescue, and He will show Himself to be your EL SHADDAI, the God who is more than enough. When all you need is a fresh skin of water, He will provide you with a well filled with a never-ending supply of fresh water. He will lift you up and make you strong, He will provide for you, with not just enough for your needs, but more than enough and then some. 

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
