I was reading my Bible earlier, preparing for a speaking event that’s coming up.  I want to share with you what Jesus spoke to me as I read His word.

In my distress I called to the Lord: I cried to my God for help.  From His temple He heard my voice; my cry came before Him, into His ears. Psalm 18:6

Friends, this song David penned is amazing, wonderful words of life.  Read that verse again!  I’m in awe that the God who created the stars, who numbered the sand in the sea, who lives in the Heavens, hears my cry for help.

Doesn’t that just stop you in your tracks?  God comes to you and I when we call on His name.  Not just sometimes, but all the time, every time!  He doesn’t have a limit and say, “I’m not coming, you’ve called on my name way too much!”  No my God runs to me every time I all His name.

My cry for help comes to His ears!  This is a verse of sheer victory!  There’s no other name we can call on that can run to our side, calm our storm, scoop us up in their arms of love, and bear our pain.  Only Jesus can do that for you and for me!

So while I was sitting here praising Him for who He is to me, I decided to share this with you.  I pray this verse encourages your heart this afternoon.

Take some time to sit at His feet, and worship Him today, simply for who He is to you.

He is my Lord and my God.  My King.  My Father.  My Redeemer.  My Protector.  My Defender.  My Rock…and so much more. 

Have a great afternoon sitting at His feet.




Make plans to attend my 2nd Annual Women’s Night of Worship, September 21st at Thompson Station Church
