How many times have you called someone for help, and they did not answer your call? How frustrating.
When we look to others to fulfill our needs, first we put expectations on them, then we take the risk of disappointment. If what we expect from others is delivered, we’re good. But when they don’t, we’re disappointed, frustrated, and even upset at others.
Our first response is to go to God. Call upon Him, not second, or somewhere down the line, or when everything or everyone else has failed — but first. Go to God, expecting from him. Come to him in spirit and in truth. He will hear you, and save you.
God will supply your every need. He wants to be there for you. He wants you to call on Him. He wants to give you what you ask for.
Call upon God first, not man. Man will hesitate, God is waiting.
Psalm 145:18-19 (KJV) – the Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.
Philippians 4:19 (KJV) – but my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Luke 11:9 (KJV) – and I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
Psalm 86:7 (KJV) – in the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.
