He is Near
“The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.” Psalm 145:18
Don’t wait to pray as a last resort. Too often we are driven to our knees to pray only after we’ve tried everything else and nothing has worked. The sovereign Lord has promised to be near to those who call on him. So why do we not pray more? The temptation to take matters into our own hands is great. Yet how often have we taken up a matter ourselves and it turned out profitable? Pray first, pray often, and pray fervently. The presence of the Almighty God is what we need in our lives, homes, and churches. His presence will bring needed light to an otherwise dark situation.
- Lord, help me to pray with the confidence that You are with me. Help me to remember that Your presence makes all the difference in the world. Thank You for Your promise to be near me.
