God is Never Too Busy


A lot of kids today grow up with absentee fathers. Their father's are never home, always gone, never there for the important dates. Even when their father's are home, they really aren't there. They're detached, reading a newspaper, watching television, or working. They may be physically there but they're not mentally or emotionally at home. That's why it's important to remember three encouraging facts about the closeness of God:


1- God is never too busy - "The Lord is near to all who call on him." (Psalm 145:18 NIV) He's never too busy to talk to you. He's always near. He never says, "Some other time." God loves to meet your needs --


2- He's not annoyed by your request. "If you know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!" (Matthew 7:11 NIV)


3- God is sympathetic to your hurts -- "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and rescues those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34:18 NLT) When you hurt, God hurts. When you grieve, God grieves. He is there. And He cares. That is the Good News.
