18 The Lord is near to all who call upon Him,
To all who call upon Him in truth.
19 He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him;
He will also hear their cry and will save them.
Psalms 145:18-19 NASB
God loves His people so much. He is listening for their prayers. He is a loving, caring Father who wants to be present and active in our lives.
He desires to be their in truth. That means He has a way for us to come to Him. We don’t drop a coin in a machine and ask for our every desire. We need to ask and come to Him, lining up with His will.
We also need to come to Him in fear. Not fear like we are afraid, but fear like He is awesome. Fear like we should be respectful and reverent His Presence. God is not a cosmic Santa Claus!
Are you lined up with God’s will? The way you know if you are or not is to get into His Word! He has revealed His desires and plan for your life in His Word.
If you don’t, you need to spend time in His Word. Read a few chapters a day. Ask and pray for guidance as you do. It will change you!
Lord, help us to live in fear of Your holy Presence. Help us to have a passion for seeking You through Your truth. Thank You for listening to us and drawing close to us.
