“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”
Psalm 46: 1 (King James Version)
Doctors are on call all the time unless they have arranged with someone to cover for them. Pastors are on call all the time also. There are times when pastors ask someone to go visit for them or handle a crisis. There is someone else who is on call twenty four hours a day every day and it is our Heavenly Father.
He is our haven of refuge and our strength. He is also a very present help in trouble. We can call on Him any time day or night and He is there to protect us. How comforting it is to know that God is our refuge and strength and that we don’t have to face the trials of this life by ourselves. No matter what time of the day or night we call Him, He is available to us. He is on call all of the time.
There is a question that every Christian should ask themselves “Am I available and on call twenty four hours a day if God asks me to do something for Him?” If we can’t answer that question with a yes, we need to ask God to forgive us. Are you available and on call any time of the day or night if God asks you to do something for Him? After all that He has done for us, shouldn't we do everything that we can for Him?
Heavenly Father, thank You for being our refuge and strength. Thank You for being on call any time of the day or night when we need You. Please forgive us for not answering You when You call on us to do something. Help us to be available and on call for You any time of the day or night. We love You and we appreciate all that You do for us. Amen.
