When I was younger, I used to think that God was up in heaven just waiting for me and others to do something wrong so he could punish us. He seemed distance , angry, and aloof. I didn’t think that He really cared about me personally. That is, until I started studying the Bible and read these verses spoken by Jesus: Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son: if you ask anything in my name, I will do it. John 14:13, 14
Ask anything? Could this really be true? I went to my Pastor at that time and asked him. He said that it was true. Wow! But that’s incredible. I wasn’t interested in asking for lots of expensive material possessions like fur coats, jewelry, and so forth. I was thinking about having good things like world peace and cures for diseases and hunger.
Suddenly I thought that God must really care about us after all if He made such a promise. He really does care and is right here with us. I starting talking to Him. He became my best friend and my life has never been the same since.
He can become your best friend too. You can talk to Him anytime, anywhere and He will answer. He says in Jeremiah 29:13: You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Why not seek Him today? He will hear and answer you. And you will never be the same!
