This week my Dear God Note 15 is a prayer to God. It applies in my life and I hope it will help some of you also. I love God so much and I know that he is here for all of us. Let's make our relationship with him PERSONAL. He's not just some guy out there in the sky ruling over us, he is our Father, leader, helper, Savior, and he is there for every person on this earth. If you ask him, he will be there for you also. That is what he does. That is who he is.
I have been studying 1 Samuel in my Bible Study over this last week, and it struck me that the Jews turned away from God so many times. He had done so much for them, and they would seem to loose sight of that and turn away from God. (a common theme starting all the way back in Genesis) Each time when they turned back to God he was always there for them and gave them what they needed. He still does that today. The thing is that we no longer need a prophet, judge, or king to talk to God to ask him for our needs. When Jesus died on the cross, we no longer had to go through someone else to talk to God. What an amazing gift.
And all the people said to Samuel, Pray for your servants to Jehovah your God, so that we will not die. For we have added evil to all our sins, to ask a king for us.
1 Samuel 12:19
When these people asked Samuel for a King, Samuel was upset, because he felt that they rejected him. God explained to Samuel, that it wasn't Samuel being rejected, but God himself again. He gave them what they wanted. Definitely not a wise request. I would rather have God leading me, whether in peace or war. I am just so grateful that I can talk to God directly and that is solely because of what Jesus did on the cross for us.
I also wanted to share a song with all of you today. It is one that I really love. It's called Lead Me by Sanctus Real
Have a blessed week.
