How strong is our reliance on God? Scripture continually tells us how close God is to us. How God pursues us and answers our needs. So with this knowledge why don’t we continuously call on God all throughout our lives?
Do we mainly call out to God when we’re facing a severe problem that we cannot solve? If the problem is minimal do we often rely on ourselves to solve it? Why do we not approach God in all things to lead us in how to address our issues?
But let us not call on the Lord simply to be a problem solver. Let us call on the Lord to offer praise and thanksgiving. When we recall all the wondrous things God has done for us, let us call on God to express our gratitude. We may never stop calling on the Lord if we are forever mindful of God’s presence.
How often are we approaching God in our day? Can we make time to call on God an additional time? We can use the time to keep God close and rely on God’s lead and not think we are in control. And when God answers let us follow through in obedience.
When we pray, are we allowing time to glorify God instead of just asking for things?
God gives us the choice to follow Jesus or our desires. Where does our heart lead us?
