Approaching God in Prayer
Are you reluctant to approach God in prayer with your daily personal problems and needs? Gain new confidence to knock on God’s door in this devotional – and hear the smile in God’s voice as He welcomes you in.
“it’s me, Judi,
can I come in?”
“you can, and you may”
(there’s a smile in HIS voice)
the door is massive
but it opens easily.
HE is already walking down
from HIS throne toward me.
and HE greets me with a hug.
(when GOD hugs you,
you know you’ve been hugged)
“come sit over here in the comfy
seats”, HE says, and sits close
enough to hear every word:
“now, tell me about ‘that
thing’ that is bothering you”.
HE’s “Red Sea”, “Walls of Jericho”-capable!
but I spit out ‘headache’.
but I cringe. HE recognizes my
embarrassment and says:
“my dear little Judi, nothing is too small.
‘that thing’ that bothers you, bothers me.
because I love you so”
when you begin to realize the capacity
of the love of GOD, you position yourself
“But I will sing of your strength,
in the morning I will sing of your love;
for you are my fortress,
my refuge in times of trouble.” Psalm 59:16 NIV
Whatever ‘that thing’ is for you
bring it to GOD. Knock on HIS mighty
door and expect an answer. Always.
He works on hangnails and floods.
