This morning, when Lori woke up too sick to coach at the gymnastic competition, who’s she gonna call? Well, she’s not gonna call Ghostbusters. I received the call at 4:45 a.m. After a brief discussion, I left for the meet. How did she know I would go? Well, for thirteen years, day in and day out, Lori and I talk. We are always there for each other. We have developed that trust daily.
Driving to the meet, the massive orange sun rose over the horizon spilling light onto route 176. The sunrise reminded me that faithful God always answers us. Our certainty in God comes from sharing our days with Him.
When Jesus walked on earth, He was always in communion with God. In fact, before raising Lazarus from the dead He prayed, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me” (John 11:41). Through daily communication with the Father, Jesus could boldly declare those words of truth.
Martha, Lazarus’s sister, also knew Jesus trusted in God. She said, “I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask” (John 11:24).
And Jesus tells us that God always hears us and responds, “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you” (John 15:7).
If you are not convinced God hears and responds to you, increase the time you spend with Him and listen to His Word.
