Call in Truth

The Bible tells us that the LORD is close to all who call on Him in truth. This verse speaks of prayers that are made in truth—or sincerely, with an upright heart. This speaks about prayers that are made by someone who is trusting in God, waiting upon Him for the answer.

So many people tell us how to pray and it can complicate something that is supposed to be simple. He promises, “You will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you” (Jeremiah 29:12 NLT). He says, “Call to Me and I will answer” (Jeremiah 33:3 NLT). What blocks you from calling on Him and speaking what is on your heart?

Don’t overcomplicate prayer. Don’t neglect to pray because you think you won’t do it right. Pour out your heart—your real heart. There’s no need to insert fancy words or tell Him what you think He wants to hear. Speak boldly. Speak the truth. Reveal what is on your heart. Trust that He will answer. Wait for the answer. This is calling in truth.

“The LORD is close to all who call on Him, yes, to all who call on Him in truth.” – Psalm 145:18 [NLT]

Immeasurable

“Great is the LORD! He is most worthy of praise! No one can measure His greatness.” No one can measure His greatness. It’s immeasurable.

We toss around a lot of words. Awesome. Great. Wonderful. We use these words to describe things, and sometimes in doing so, we diminish the actual meaning of the word. God alone is great. God alone is worthy of praise. The Psalmist notes that “no one can measure His greatness.” We can spend the rest of our lives trying, but we couldn’t do it.

In Job 11:7, the New Living Translation says, “Can you solve the mysteries of God? Can you discover everything about the Almighty?” Isaiah 40:28 says, “Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of His understanding” (NLT).

Today, recognize the greatness of our Lord. It’s immeasurable. Praise Him for He alone deserves all honor, glory, and praise!

“Great is the LORD! He is most worthy of praise! No one can measure His greatness.” – Psalm 145:3 [NLT]

Come and Talk

Come and talk with me. We hear this often from friends and family. Since I can remember, I have heard this invitation. I love a nice chat. It’s nice that someone wants to spend time with you and just talk. The Psalmist is referencing this invitation that God gives to each of us: “Come and talk with Me.” Yes, the God of the universe wants to talk with you. God Almighty, wants to talk with you.

This invitation from God is a 24/7 invitation. It’s not like the invitations we get from friends and family. You know how life gets everyone busy and you have that moment of panic. You try to get in touch with your closest friend. Your friend is at work with a phone on silent. Maybe you have something on your mind and you cannot sleep. It’s 2am. It would not be so kind to call at that hour. But God doesn’t say, “I’m busy.” He doesn’t have a time when He is unable or unwilling to listen to you.

Today, He extends this invitation to you. “Come and talk with Me.” You have a choice. You can make time. You can answer the invitation. You do not even have to set out a specific time or schedule an appointment. You can speak with Him all day, through the day. Are you saying, “LORD, I am coming” in response to His invitation?

“My heart has heard You say, ‘Come and talk with Me.’ And my heart responds, ‘LORD, I am coming.’” – Psalm 27:8 [NLT]
