God Is Never Too Busy To Talk

Doesn't that privilege of intimate conversation with God make it plain that you are not a slave, but a child? And if you are a child, you're also an heir, with complete access to the inheritance. Galatians 4:7 (MSG)

God is always near. He never says, "Some other time."

Here are three encouraging facts to remember about God:

God is never too busy “The Lord is near to all who call on him.” (Psalm 145:18 NIV) He's never too busy to talk to you. He's always near. He never says, "Some other time."

God loves to meet your needs -- He's not annoyed by your 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 your hurts -- "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and rescues those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18 NLT) When you hurt, God hurts. When you grieve, God grieves. He is there.  And He cares. That is the Good News.

This month at Saddleback Church, I’m leading the congregation through a study on parenting. We’ve also just released a new parenting curriculum through Saddleback Resources that I think you’ll find helpful: Raising Your Kids without Raising Your Blood Pressure
