Calling on God’s Name

Then you will call my name. You will come to me and pray to me, and I will listen to you.  Jeremiah 29:12 NCV

calling on God's nameI have been calling on God’s name for years, and He has answered my prayers.

One of the first big things I prayed for was to finish high school at Jefferson High. I had moved to the east side of town during my junior year and needed a transfer to attend JHS. Both principals signed my transfer. In theory, this might not mean much, but to me, it did. I was a young Christian and believed finishing high school at Jefferson would help me emotionally.

I have also called on the Lord’s name about finances, and the Lord has helped me with them. I work for a small company, and the owner does whatever he can to assist me. The Lord has also reduced my expenses by helping me find better deals on things like car insurance.

The Lord listens to us. Although He doesn’t automatically give us what we want, He will provide us with things He knows are best for us. Praying about my finances didn’t mean God would give me a million dollars. But what He will do is give me enough to survive. He may also prevent costly things from going wrong.

Call on God’s name. He will listen. Then trust Him to give you what is best for you.
