“‘When I called, they did not listen; so when they called, I would not listen,’ says the LORD Almighty.
How many of us treat God like a life line? Whenever we are in trouble or distress we call out to God to save us. But when things are going good, we usually don’t thank him or even acknowledge him. This is the same relationship God had with the Jewish people. When he called out to them, they wouldn’t listen so when the time came when they cried out to God, he stopped listening also.
Many of us don’t see God as a relationship but he is. Through Jesus Christ we can have a personal relationship with God. As many of us probably know a relationship requires both people to be open and honest with one another and communicate!
Usually when a marriage or friendship is going bad, that’s when communication or trust has broken down. This is the same with our relationship with God. Maybe you’re wondering why God seems so distant or not hearing you, maybe you have been distant and not hearing him. A relationship requires work, communication, honesty, and sacrifice!
So throughout your day , give praise to God through prayer! Cast your cares and concerns upon him! Let him know whats going on in your mind! Jesus has given us the way to God the Father, call upon him daily in Jesus name Amen!
