God is always with us. You may not see Him but He is there. A 24/7 God who cares about you. Sometimes when the world feels like it is running out on you or a friend has deserted you God is there. Hebrews 4:13 says "Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account." 2 Chronicles 6:19 it says "For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward him. You have done foolishly in this, for from now on you will have wars.”
Psalm 121:4 tells us "Indeed he who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps." Imagine that! Up all the time. Never more than a prayer away! That is good news for us. When you wake up unable to sleep instead of popping a pill, taking a drink of alcohol to relax or turning on the TV, why not open God's word and read for awhile. Your Bible is your 24/7 counseling center.
He is here for us to help us and save us. God is for us so who can be against us. Romans 8:31 says "What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? " Jeremiah 33:3 tells us "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know." The shortest verse in the Bible is in John 11:35 and it simply says "Jesus wept." Jesus says in Hebrews 13:5 that "never will He leave you or forsake you." Believe it and give your cares to Him.
PRAYER: Dear Lord thank you for being a 24/7 'around the clock' God who never closes down for a rest. Thank you for hearing my prayers. In Jesus Name. Amen
