The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
Just because we call out to God for answers or help doesn’t mean we’ll get what we want. He wants us to come to him in truth—the whole truth. Then if we do, he promises to be near. That’s a pretty great deal!
Sometimes it seems God sets a lot of stipulations of what he expects from us. But honestly, I think he just wants a simple, straightforward, no-nonsense, genuine relationship. No drama, no lies.
I tell him the truth; he tells me the truth.
Am I telling God the truth?
Am I letting God tell me the truth?
