I don’t know all that is going on, obviously, but today I have been bombarded with some urgent/serious prayer requests. I am grateful, as I know you are to pray with others as they go through difficult times, but even more grateful with this truth fro scripture from Psalm 145:18, “The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth.”
Friends, we never want to take lightly the wonderfulness of being able to come into the presence of the King of Kings and Lord of all Lord’s, on “no” merit of our own, but purely as a result of Christ’s finished work on the cross on our behalf. Scripture says, we can come boldly and confidently, asking, seeking and knocking, and as we pray in His will He hears us and we know if He hears us we know that we have the requests that we have asked of Him!
Isn’t it a wonderful thought that the God of all creation wants to have a relationship with us and desires to hear from us? I am so grateful and thankful for His unconditional, sacrificial and servant love for us and knowing that 24/7–365 He is available to us.
I also am greatly encouraged that we are never more near Him than when we truly understand how dependent upon Him we are and spend time in fellowship, not just in prayer with Him. I wonder if there would be less stress and anxiety in our life if we grabbed and held to this truth more????
Have a great day friends,
