Memory Verse: “I love the Lord, because he hath heard my voice and my supplication. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.” Psalm 116:1,2
What an awesome truth, to know that the Lord hears us when we call on Him! He is never to far away that He does not hear us. All we have to do is call on Him ~ bring our petitions before Him, and lay them at His feet. Does the Lord give us an answer to every question we bring before Him? You bet He does! Is it the answer we are hoping for? Not always! We can be assured though that the Lord will and does answer each and every one of our petitions. He answers in one of three ways:
1. He may answer “Yes”
2. He may answer “No”
3. He may answer “Wait awhile”
Whatever the answer may be, we have to be willing to accept it, no matter what it may be. I think the Lord loves it when we bring our concerns to Him. He is waiting with open arms to help us. But He can’t do that if we don’t ask Him!
I struggle with this. I try to do things on my own, without help from anyone. Just think how much easier my life would be, if I would only learn to seek the Lord’s help in everything!
Prayer: Thank you Lord for being there for me, even when I think I don’t need you! Thank you for loving me in spite of myself!
