READ: Psalm 17

When my family first moved to Royse City, we moved into a brand new home. I had never lived in a new house, but I quickly learned that one huge benefit was the warranty on everything! If there was something wrong with the house or with an appliance, all I had to do was call the maker of the house! The same is true for most things. If something is broken, my first call or visit for assistance is going to be to the manufacturer. If anyone can fix it, it’s going to be the one that made it, right!? Well, why wouldn’t we treat God the same way?

He created you, so if something’s wrong, He should be the first one you turn to.

One thing that we see in the Psalms is that in every season, prayer was a centerpiece, regardless of whether life was good or bad. In the time that I have been a Pastor, I have learned that Christians don’t pray enough, sometimes they don’t pray at all. I think one reason why is that we overcomplicate prayer. Or maybe you feel like God is too busy for you. He’s not; He’s listening and He cares. Perhaps we think we aren’t worthy to ask God for anything. I’m sure there are more reasons, but it doesn’t matter what reason you come up with, it’s wrong! Prayer is a conversation with a God who loved you so much that He paid the ultimate price to restore relationship with you. It’s a conversation with the one that created you. If something’s wrong He should be the first one you go to. If anyone can fix it and make it right, He can! Stop treating prayer like a spare tire and start treating it like the steering wheel for your life.

Prayer: Take a few minutes just to just talk to God about what’s on your heart.
