God is Never Too Busy

In summary of Psalms 145:18 it says, "The Lord is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him in truth."

Bottom Line:
God is near to those who call to him, who call to him with sincerity.

What this means to me:
When I earnestly seek him, he will draw near to me.  There are three encouraging facts about the closeness of God that I can count on:
  • God is never too busy - "The Lord is near to all who call on him." (Psalm 145:18 NIV) This means that He's never too busy to talk to me. He's always nearby, and will never say, "Some other time."
  • God loves to meet needs - He will not be annoyed by my request. "If you know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!" (Matthew 7:11 NIV)
  • God is sympathetic to my hurts -- "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and rescues those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34:18 NLT)  This means that when I hurt, God hurts. When I grieve, God grieves. God is there for me, He cares.

In summary when I seek him, he will be there.
