“He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him.” Ps 91:15 NKJV
Bill Gates was hooked up to the computer network we call the Internet. Using it, subscribers can send electronic mail (e-mail) to other users of the Internet. Originally, Gates had an e-mail address just like everyone else. But he got into trouble when The New Yorker magazine published it—now anyone could send the computer genius an e-mail. In no time he was swamped with five thousand messages—he simply couldn’t handle it. So he armed his computer with software that filtered his e-mail, allowing important messages through and sending all the others to electronic oblivion. We are limited; we can handle only so much and do only so much. God, on the other hand, never tires of s-mail (spirit mail). His ear is always open to our prayers. And He has an unlimited capacity to help. You’ll never hear Him say, “Due to an unusually high call volume I am unable to take your message at this time. Please call back or leave a message.” No, the Bible says, “He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.” “The desire of the righteous will be granted” (Pr 10:24 NKJV). “The prayer of the upright is His delight” (Pr 15:8 NKJV). “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know” (Jer 33:3 NKJV). “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you” (Jn 15:7 NKJV).
