“The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth.” (Ps 145:18)
Jehovah wants to answer prayers and He wants people to call upon Him in their time of need, but just like people, God doesn’t want to be manipulated. He requires that we call upon Him in truth.
You know that coworker that only comes by your cubicle when he needs something? Or that long lost cousin that only shows up when he’s broke? Or that narcissistic friend from high school that only wants friendship on their terms?
Don’t be that guy.
“ ‘Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will hear you. You will seek Me and find Me. When you seek Me with all your heart, I will be found by you’, declares the Lord” (Jer 29:11-14)
