In the last couple of months I’ve had to make quite a few phone calls. Lots of time has been spent listening to prompts to press a series of numbers to get to the right department. It’s quite a complicated effort to ever get to a living breathing voice. Even quite a few local offices now have these answering services. And frankly I just want to talk to a real person.

Oh beloved life and phone systems can sure get complicated. One thing you can know – talking to the Lord requires no wait. You’ve been frustrated by things that are going on. You’ve even tried to push through by human means but to no avail.

The Lord wants you to know this morning that He is always available and calling on Him is never complicated. He is an Ever Present Help in time of need. He knows your life from beginning to end so when you are calling He already knows your best outcome. Even though it may seem like a long time you have to wait He is right on time. Your life and your questions are important to Him. And your strength is dependent upon Him. You’ll never get the answer you want in fleshly attempts but as you call on the Lord in Spirit and Truth you will peace in the process and joy in His answers!

God loves you and He’s for you. No religious system will do. This is a relationship of tender loving care. Rejoice that your prayers are always heard and His answers are always on time as you live in His Presence and according to His Word.

Hebrews 4: 16 So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.

Psalm 145: 18 The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth.

Deuteronomy 4: 7 For what great nation has a god as near to them as the LORD our God is near to us whenever we call on Him?
