I'm Glad I Can Talk to God

Sometimes it is tough to keep an Eternal perspective when life has you pinned down and you feel trapped on this planet. I get frustrated that people on this planet have the nerve to tell somebody else, “You’re not good enough for me to talk to you.”

I’m thankful that God — the creator of all things — is willing to take the time and listen to my cries. Although I am small, He will never tell me that He doesn’t have time for me and that He’s too powerful to hear my concerns.

6But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
Mathew 6:6Read the full context.

I am also comforted that while I am supposed to obey my superiors, those higher than me on Earth are put to a standard as well:

5Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. 6Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but like slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart. 7Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, 8because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does, whether he is slave or free.

9And masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Do not threaten them, since you know that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with him.
Ephesians 6:5-9Read the full context.

  1. It is a great honor to be able to talk to God. It is all too easy to talk to an empty room without considering Who is listening to my prayer.

    Prayer is a blessing when you consider that Old Testament Jews were had restricted access to God (symbolized by the veil in the tabernacle and temple blocking site of the Holy of Holies). When Christ died on the cross, that veil was torn in two from top to bottom (signifying that God removed the divider) to show that we now had access, through Christ, to God.

    Another good verse for work is Phil. 2:14-16 "Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain." Hard to do, but people will notice.
