1 John 5:14,15 We can come to God with no doubts. That means that when we ask God for things (and those things agree with what God wants for us), He cares about what we say. He listens to us every time we ask him. So we know that he gives us whatever we ask from him.

As you think about God and all that He has on His plate, what do you imagine His level of attention to the problems in your life is right at the moment? Is He engaged … or is He off somewhere, busy with something else?

I have a cat at home and her name is Doggy. Cool name for a cat, huh?

Every morning I go down to the kitchen to make a cup of tea and she’s sitting there up on the window sill outside, wanting to get in.

Now Doggy knows that it pays to advertise, so she sits there with the looks and the facial expressions and the eye contact – I’m sure she’d do a triple somersault if she could! – that say “Just let me in.”

I used to imagine that that’s how it would be with God. You know … if I finally went to Him with something, I’d have to do somersaults to grab His attention – special prayers, or some secret formula, or some “clean up my act” thing. Surely there’d have to be something for Him to let me in, right?

But that’s simply not how it works with God.

1 John 5:14,15 We can come to God with no doubts. That means that when we ask God for things (and those things agree with what God wants for us), He cares about what we say. He listens to us every time we ask him. So we know that he gives us whatever we ask from him.

So whatever it is that’s on your heart today, whatever it is that’s bothering you, whatever it is that you need His help with, whatever it is that’s hurting, whatever it is that’s confounding you; today, here and now, take God at His Word and go and ask.

Can it really be that simple? Absolutely it can.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
