One of the most comforting and beautiful things we will ever learn in life is this:
We never have to face this life alone.
The great Creator that gave us life is as close as a whispered prayer. He wants our fellowship and is waiting to hear from us! He doesn’t expect a grand oration with educated words and fancy clichés. He simply wants our hearts.
He waits to hear our expressed gratitude for all that He has done in our lives. We need not look far at all when we consider the many ways He has blessed our lives. He desires communion with the ones He breathed life into.
Have we thanked Him for loving us lately? Have we expressed our sincere love and adoration to Him for who He is? Have we told Him how much we appreciate His beautiful creation recently? Does He hear our sincere repentance when we’ve sinned?
Friends, He’s available and ready to communicate with us whenever we pray! No matter the circumstances, Jesus wants to be a part of our lives. The Bible teaches us to “Pray without ceasing.” (1 Thessalonians 5:17) When we’re talking to Jesus on a daily basis and sharing our lives with Him, we realize He’s so much more than simply a Friend who listens.
He’s our Savior! “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) No one else holds the keys to eternal life!
He’s our strength! “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.” (Romans 8:26) No other person or thing can renew our soul’s strength!
He is our avenue to forgiveness! “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9) There is no other that can wash away our sins!
He’s our Deliverer! “When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.” (Psalm 34:17) When we think there is no way out of our dilemmas, God has the solutions we never thought about!
He’s our Provider! “And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19) He is able to care for His children!
He is everything we need!
What greater blessing is there?
Friends, no matter what others think or say, we must never forget how blessed we are to know the blessing of prayer! What a miracle it is that the Creator of the universe would desire fellowship with us! How incredible it is that the Savior of the world would be willing to walk beside us.
He patiently helps us through our mistakes and compassionately comforts us through our heartaches. He willingly forgives and gladly strengthens.
What a wonderful Savior and Lord we serve!
