“I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.” Psalm 27:6 NIV
Read: Psalm 17:1-9
Have you called “1 800 I DON’T CARE’? There is no such number, but it may seem like that when you call a company’s 800 number.
Have you bought something or had a problem with a product and called an 800 customer service line? After waiting on hold for what seemed the better part of the day, you are connected to someone who displays an attitude of: “I am only here for what they pay me and I really don’t care what your problem is.”
Congratulations! You reached the imaginary ‘1 800 I DON’T CARE!’ Some companies’ customer service lines seem to fit the imaginary number.
Aren’t you glad that you don’t get such a response when you call GOD? GOD always answers. You never get a busy signal. HE never puts you on hold. You are never forced to listen to music that you dislike. You never have to give your social security number, your date of birth, your mother’s maiden name or a pint of blood.
GOD knows who you are without you telling him. HE wants to talk with you. Chances are HE has been waiting for you to call HIM up. Of all GOD has to do, HE wants nothing more than for you to come to HIM in prayer. Prayers are always welcomed. Prayers of thanks, prayers for the needs of others, prayers for your needs and yes, even prayers for your wants (those personal wants that have nothing to do with need).
GOD simply wants for you to communicate with HIM. GOD’S personal line is “CALL ME, I CARE!” GOD answers your prayers.
Today’s prayer: “GOD MY CREATOR, Thank YOU for always being there for me and always hearing my every prayer. YOU always answer my prayers. When I listen carefully, I hear YOUR yes, no or wait. Amen.”
