Are you someone who is afraid of the dark? When you have to venture into a place where you cannot see do you call out to those with you? The Psalmist addresses the issues of being lost. He assures us that the Lord is near. All we have to do is to call upon Jesus.
“The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He will also hear their cry and will save them.”
Call if you’re serious
The Lord never leaves your side. You may not sense His presence or feel like He is there, but He is. You don’t realize He is close because you are focused on other things and calling out to other people. God will not interrupt us unless it is essential but patiently waits. The Psalmist tells us that all we need to do is call upon Him, and He will answer. There is one catch. You have to call to Him in truth. That means you sincerely want Him to act in your situation and not just bail you out. God knows your intent.
Are you at a place where you need to be saved? Have you gotten yourself into a mess that you can’t get out? If you cry out to Jesus, He will hear your cry and save you. He holds the solution to your woes if you come to Him with a contrite heart. Admit your fault and confess your needs. Humble yourself and allow the Holy Spirit to do work in your heart. You will sense the presence of the Lord.
Call Upon Jesus
If you call upon Jesus in truth, He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him. Jesus wants to minister to you and take care of your needs. He wants to shower you with His love and grow closer to you. For that to happen, you need to be honest with yourself. Are you using God, or do you see Him and your solution to everything? That is the difference between truth and deceit. Come to Jesus with the right heart.
