Press 1 and someone may be with you shortly.

    I don’t know about you, but how many times have you called a place and didn’t get a person on the first try?  Maybe you had to go through three or four different computerized voices before actually reaching a person.  The personalization of people has been replaced by digital responses.  Sometimes I just don’t want to hear digital voices, and would rather speak to a person, but I think those days are long gone.  I guess I am not the only person that feels this way, Joe Stowell wrote about “it seems as though whenever we try and reach out and touch someone, we are greeted with a computerized voice.

    I’m glad this isn’t true of our Father in Heaven.  He is always there.  No voice-mail boxes, no “press 2 for more grace” and no “call waiting” interruptions.  Thankfully, “Call to Me, and I will answer you” has not been replaced by, “All lines are busy.  Your call is important to Me.  Please stay on the line.”

    Yet I wonder what kind of access He has to us?

    Communication (there’s that word again) with God is a two way street.  He speaks to us through His Word when we come attentively before Him in prayer and through the clear voice of the Indwelling Spirit.  He paid a great price to keep the lines open so that we can experience the joy of being still long enough to know that He is God.” 

Quote of the day:  Joe Stowell

“The joy of hearing His voice is a call you don’t want to miss!”

Bible verse of the day:  Jeremiah 33:3

“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”


Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You that You always hear my call.  You always have an answer and are willing to show me the things that I don’t know or understand at times.  I pray that I keep the lines of communication open with You and that during times of trials that may come my way, I am able to dial Your number and Hear Your Powerful yet small voice whispering to me and saying, “Everything will be alright!”  Lord, I come attentively to You in prayer and pray that I too keep the distractions at a distance and that I stay focused on the plans that You have set before me.  May I hear the clear voice of the Holy Spirit that dwells deep within me so that I may see all the great and mighty things that You have to show me.  I don’t know what my day may hold, but with You leading my way and directing my path, I shall overcome.  I thank You for this day!

In Jesus Name I pray,
