Cry Out so Jehovah Can Restore

There were times in Israel, in the Old Testament, when it seemed Israel had gotten things so topsy-turvy that absolutely nothing could ever get them turned right side up again. Then Jehovah would send a prophet to His people. It would seem as though the Lord was almost at the point of begging Israel to call on Him. The Bible says there was a time when Israel had been in a captivity period that was so bad that they had to live in holes in the ground. I can’t imagine living in a hole in the ground! Just how bad could it get? The nation was scattered and defeated. Everything they had was taken from them. It was stolen. And they were wished dead by all the surrounding nations. God said that if His people would cry out, He would restore! Lk.18:7,Amplified—”And will not [our just] God defend and avenge His elect [His chosen ones] who cry out to Him day and night? Will He delay [in providing justice] on their behalf?”
