Psalm 145: 18

The LORD is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him in truth.

If you continue reading, the Word tells us that He Grants, He protects, He destroys. The key is calling on Him in truth.

I amaze myself at times with what I think I am hiding from the LORD. When I speak with women not a lot of them will admit that they try to fool themselves with the fact that they try to hide anything from the LORD. Maybe they don't, maybe I am alone in admitting that I still (grown woman and all) try to think I might hide something from the LORD. I fool myself into thinking that He doesn't see something and that I can take care of it on my own. Second mistake….First mistake was thinking I can hide anything. I don't think we grow up in this area though…we get better, but do we totally realize that God knows all, so just call on Him to begin with??? Is it our human nature to try to handle things on our own? Is it a woman's nature to call her bbf first and then call on the LORD?

The Word tells us to call on Him and then He will take action. Wow, why is it so hard for us to make this call at times? Is it admitting our own weaknesses? Is it fear? Is it we might not like HIS answer?

I am learning the older that I get it is the best step to make the call. I still falter at times because of the fact that when I go I do want to go in total truth and I am afraid of His answer. I sometimes think if I just don't approach Him then I can do things my way. It doesn't work that way, I still end up approaching Him because in the long run it will be His Way ~ Not Mine.

You would think at 50…I would know this. I do, but I am still a fool at times…I am still growing…I am still weak…I am still fearful…I am still…

Did you catch it? When I am still…I finally realize who I need to call…Sometimes, I just don't let myself get still to know…

Be still and know that I am God…Psalm 46:10

So I am reminded this morning to be still and call the one who knows!

Debbie, the I am still...that I could write, is that I am still learning...still learning to call on The One Who Knows!
