The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them. (Ps 145.18-19)
In my quiet time the other night, I studied Ps 145:18-19.
The Lord is near to all who call upon him…IN TRUTH.
To all who call upon Him IN TRUTH…He will fulfill the desire of those.
What does this mean… in truth? As I was praying I asked God what does it mean to call upon him in truth. His response… with sincerity. This means that we are to come to God and call on him with sincerity, a pure heart focused and in love with him.
Not only are we to be sincere with God, but also with ourselves. If I am coming to God, calling on God, praying for a husband, is this my sincere, true desire? Am I ready for that kind of relationship? Is it really what I want? Or is it because of the world’s view of singleness?
God is so wonderful that you can ask him for sincerity of heart, and he will give it to you. Ask him if he will focus your mind, and sweep away the distractions. He wants nothing more than time where you are only calling on Him, focused on Him. He knows you even more than you know yourself. So, when you get to know God, the true desires of your heart are revealed to you & to Him.
