“The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth.” Psalm 145:18 (NASB)
We who truly believe in God know that He does not keep office hours. We know that God is everywhere, and we can call on Him at any time from any place or situation. We will never find a “Be back at...” sign on his door. We need to remember though, that we must have the proper attitude when we call on God. David, the psalmist reminds us of this in today verse. Our God is everywhere and our God knows everything and He has wonderful ways of making His presence real to those who sincerely want to experience His nearness. Yes, it is possible to call on the Lord without sincerity. It is possible to say we will Pray without actually ever saying a Sincere prayer to God. It is possible to do it as a matter of practiced form, or for the wrong motive. We can pray to impress others with a facade of piety. But God knows our hearts, and our thoughts, and the motives we have. This promise calls for us to be truthful and sincere when we seek and call out to God who is always near, and always knows, and always ready to help.
