“God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there.” Ge. 21:17 NIV
Too often we view Heaven as a place so far removed from our experience that no help could ever come from there.
We think, as God is in Heaven watching us “From a distance”( as the old song goes) He too is somehow helpless to reach out and touch us in the place of our infirmities.
I think this is one of the reasons we often try to solve things ourselves first and pray last if at all over a problem. Yet the idea of Heaven being far away is a misconception.
Jesus preached “The kingdom of heaven is near.” Matt 4:7 NIV
For that reason he told His disciples they were to , “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons.” Matt. 10:18 NIV
God is real and He is real close. He’s listening right now and I have it on good authority He wants to help you out. He’s just waiting for you to realize it and reach out.
Now would be a good time to pray:
God I know your word says that you are close enough to hear my every cry. So I reach out to you today. Help me in my weakness. Heal me. Get involved in my situations and show me how you want things in my life to work. In Jesus name A-men!
Let me know what happens as a result of praying! 🙂
