When we call for a nearby friend at need and they don’t answer, we go look for them. We go closer to where they are so we can call again and maybe see why they didn’t answer at first. But when we call for God and He doesn’t answer, we have a tendency to walk away. Why?
God is not far. James 4:8; 1 Corinthians 3:16 & 6:19; 2 Corinthians 6:16; Romans 8:11; Galatians 4:6
God may not always answer as quickly as we like (His timing is not our timing), but He always answers. Luke 11:5-13 & 18:1-8
There are reasons we can call God our friend. We can call to Him for help, and He will always help with the perfect thing at the perfect time.
