"The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth." NIV
"The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth."KJV
Everyone calls on God at some time or another. Even those who have not accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. They may be in a critical situation and don't know where to turn. Or, they may be facing a life or death situation. The Word of God says he is near those who call on Him in truth. What does that mean? Jesus said He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to His Father but by Him. The Lord is near to those that are His through Jesus Christ. Just like it does no good to make a call to get house insurance after the house has burned down, it is just as unfortunate to think God will treat us as His own when we have not let Him into our hearts.
Heavenly Father, how we praise You for always being near to us that call on You in truth. We have full assurance that You are with us. We ask that Your Holy Spirit will draw those who need Your Salvation, whether it is before a tragedy or after. Speak to their hearts today. In Jesus' name, Amen.
