I Lift Up My Soul

Dr. Charles Stanley

Close to the Father's Heart

Psalm 145:18

The Lord is near to all who call upon Him,

To all who call upon Him in truth.

The believer who lives close to the Father's heart is free to express his feelings

to Him. You do not have to be uptight with God. He knew every

derail of your life the moment He created you. When you were saved, the

Lord Jesus Christ understood all of your past failures and hang-ups and

your future struggles.

Because you are now His child for all eternity, you can be completely

honest with Him. You can pour out your hurts, your anger, and your disappointments,

your secrets, and your dreams to the Lord. He will never

reject you (Heb. 13:5). You can never turn away His steadfast love.

There will be times when you do not understand what God is up to

in your life. God's presence may seem distant. Because you have God's

assurance of His presence and because of His unceasing activity on your

behalf, you can still cling to Him and worship Him in the knowledge of

His love for you. Refuse the advances of competing lovers-money,fame,

power-and deny doubt and unbelief.

Have you the kind of intimacy with God so that the Father is your

most adored Friend? Does your unswerving allegiance belong to Him? If

not, confess your need for such a relationship, let Him gather you into

His waiting arms, and worship Him.

Father, let me learn to worship You even when Your presence seem distant.

Help me deny doubt and unbelief and refuse the advances of money,fame,

and power. Amen
