The Lord is near to all who call upon Him

18 The Lord is near to all who call upon Him,
To all who call upon Him in truth.
19 He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him;
He will also hear their cry and will save them.  Psalm 145:18-19

When we go to the Lord in prayer He always hears us.  As we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us.  We live in a world that is filled with darkness and wickedness and as a believer and follower of Jesus Christ it is very easy to become overwhelmed with fear.

But we have nothing to fear because no matter what we face the Lord’s grace is sufficient and His strength is perfected in our weakness.  He has called us to abide in Him and seek Him on a daily basis.  Following Jesus is not a part-time thing or a one day a week thing.  Following Jesus is a moment by moment journey in which we fix our eyes upon Him and grow in trust and intimacy with Him.

Where many struggle is they fail to abide in Him.  They allow the busyness of life or the worries of this world to take the place that Jesus deserves.  When we make seek Him the priority we will walk in victory, freedom, and authority in all things.  No matter what you are facing today know that God is greater.  He is greater than any mountain or challenge we will face.  But drawing near daily in prayer and the study of His word is the key.
