The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear Him; He hears their cry and saves them. – Psalms 145:18-19 NIV
The Lord can hear when a toddler falls down and cries. He sends extra angels to protect our little ones from harm. There is nobody too small for Him to care about. He loves all of us.
When we call upon the Lord, He answers. He doesn’t always give us the answer that we were expecting, but He gives us the best answer.
Fear of the Lord starts with love. Because we love Him, we obey His laws. Not because we have to, but because we want to. We love Him, and we nurture that relationship by reading His Word and following it. When our desires align with Him, we are blessed.
The Lord is a God of truth. He never deceives us. He always leads us in the everlasting way. Amen.
