It is often said, there are no atheists in foxholes. People tend to “find” religion when adversity and afflictions hit them at their most vulnerable moment. We may scoff at such well-timed faith, but it does reinforce the principle that God is not only sovereignly in control of all things, He is also accessible. God can do something about our worst situations, and He desires to listen to us. Do you believe He cares for all who are willing to ask for help? He does, so why not bring your concerns to Him today? He stands ready to hear and answer them.
“And Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it; and Hezekiah went up to the house of the Lord, and spread it before the Lord. Then Hezekiah prayed before the Lord, and said: ‘O Lord God of Israel, the One who dwells between the cherubim, You are God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth. Incline Your ear, O Lord, and hear; open Your eyes, O Lord, and see; and hear the words of Sennacherib, which he has sent to reproach the living God. Truly, Lord, the kings of Assyria have laid waste the nations and their lands, and have cast their gods into the fire; for they were not gods, but the work of men’s hands—wood and stone. Therefore they destroyed them. Now therefore, O Lord our God, I pray, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that You are the Lord God, You alone'” (2 Kings 19:14-20, NKJV).
