Time with God - Dec. 17, 2010

Psalms 99:6-7

Moses and Aaron were among His priests, and Samuel was among those who called on His name; They called upon the Lord and He answered them. He spoke to them in the pillar of cloud.

Calling on the Lord is a right response to God!

In the Bible, "calling on the Lord" means asking God to be involved in areas where you need His help. When you study those who were men and women of God in the Bible, you find that those who were more godly called on the Lord more. That is, they recognized that they needed God's involvement in every area of life!

Sometimes they called on the Lord for forgiveness (see verse 8), or for help in battle, or for guidance, or for His anointing on their work for His Kingdom, and the list goes on. When "they called...He answered."

As you read this devotional today, God is inviting you to change the way you approach life so that you involve Him in every aspect of your life. What relationship do you need to call upon the Lord about? What decision do you need to bring before Him? What ministry are you trying to accomplish with your own abilities and resources?

God wants you to learn to take every daily issue of life to Him. Use the space provided here to journal your personal response to what God is saying to you.
