God is ready to Talk

20150118_094125 Sometimes my granddaughters call me on the phone just to say hello or to see if they can come over. They live just 3 doors down so they come over pretty often which is okay by me. When they call I almost always get two calls – one right after the other. I get two calls because Avery who is five usually makes the first call; she has known our number for a while. Haley who is the youngest is three and now that she knows our phone number she wants to be sure that she gets a chance to call us up too. Thus, we receive not one call but two. I love those girls and they can call me anytime they want. I am glad they know my phone number.

I just got two calls from them early this morning and it reminded me about God’s phone number. I was always told that God’s phone number is Jeremiah 33:3, “Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” There is some interesting background to that story in Jeremiah; read it and you’ll be blessed. Jeremiah had some burdens on his heart and the Lord invited Jeremiah to call Him and have a talk. You can rest on the same promise. The Lord is ready to talk to you, He promises to hear your prayers and to respond. That’s His phone number, give Him a call. He is always ready to listen.

I have been blessed to have served as a pastor, a chaplain and to have been involved in other ministries throughout the years. My wife Marta and I have been blessed with a wonderful family that includes our daughter, her husband and their two daughters and our son and his wife and their son. Each of them are very special to us so please keep them all in your prayers. One truth that I always try to share with people I meet is that anything God asks you to do, He will help you to do. God has your back.
