The discussion at dinner centered on the family’s move to New York. That evening as she was saying her bedtime prayers with her mother, little Suzanne concluded them by saying, “Goodbye, Jesus. I guess we won’t be talking anymore. We are moving to New York and I’m not sure you can hear me from there.”
Our Heavenly Father is not confined to any city or church. He has no set hours or days off. We do not need an appointment and He has no secretary to screen His calls. He’s always there when we need Him for anything and everything. In fact, it is almost beyond belief that we have direct and immediate access to the Creator of the Universe.
When He encourages us to “call upon me,” He concludes this invitation by saying that He will personally “answer us.” What a gracious and generous guarantee from a loving and faithful Father. Wherever we are and whenever any need arises, He’s there waiting and listening for our call.
Prayer: Thank You, Father, for the promise that You listen, hear and answer when we call for help. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Jeremiah 33:3 ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
