 Look to Jesus

In your time of need, call upon the Name of Jesus, He will answer you. The Psalmist said, 'I sought the Lord and He answered me: those who look to Him are radiant.'

We can all have this relationship with God. If you are sick, or crippled, in despair, alone, whoever you are, wherever you are - God will hear you, God will answer your prayer. The Bible says the very hairs on your head are numbered, that God knows your thoughts and words before they are even uttered. Our relationship with God is not about religion, it's not about ceremony - it is in knowing God as your Father. 

In Mark 9:17 a man brought his son, torn from childhood by a dumb spirit, to Jesus. He said, "I brought him to your disciples but they can't heal him!" Jesus said, "Bring the boy to Me!... If you can believe, everything is possible!" The boy's father said, "Lord I believe, help my unbelief." Of course others can pray and agree with us in faith, but we have a Father who cares for us personally, we need Him to help us to believe!

This is a wonderful picture. The father had brought his son to the disciples, but they could not heal him, so he came to Jesus! There is a problem that religion teaches us to come to men, to go to the pastor/priest, to the minister, to the 'great man of God'. But what God wants is for us to come direct to Him through Jesus! The Bible is very clear: through Christ, you and I have direct access to God! We don't come through somebody else! This is a miracle! - However poor, however weak; the single parent, the sick; the drug addict, the alcoholic, the criminal - we all have direct access to God through Christ! Hebrews 4:16 says, 'come boldly to the throne of grace to find help in your time of need'. You can go to God direct. Be assured that Jesus ever lives to intercede and intervene on your behalf! He is only a prayer away from you. He loves you - He wants to talk with you.
