The Word For Today
Written by Bob and Debby Gass
'He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him...' Psalm 91:15 NKJV
Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, is hooked up to the internet. (Using the internet, subscribers can send email to other internet users. So when The New Yorker magazine published Gates' email address, he quickly got into trouble with email overload. Now anyone on the internet was able to mail the computer genius. In no time he was swamped with thousand of messages - he simply couldn't handle it. So he armed his computer with software that filtered his email, allowing important messages through and sending all the others to electronic oblivion.
We are limited; we can handle only so much and do only so much. God, on the other hand, never tires of s-mail (spirit mail). His ear is always open to our prayers. And He has an unlimited capacity to help. You'll never hear Him say, 'Due to an unusually high call volume I am unable to take your message at this time. Please call back or leave a message.'
No, the Bible says, 'He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honour him' (Psalm 91:15 NKJV). '...the desire of the righteous will be granted' (Proverbs 10:24 NKJV). '...the prayer of the upright is His delight' (Proverbs 15:8 NKJV). 'Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know' (Jeremiah 33:3 NKJV). 'If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you' (John 15:7 NKJV).
