My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? (Psalm 42:2)

Traditionally, commanders have maintained an “open door policy” to afford every member of their unit the chance  to speak with his commander.

In practice, however, the enormous demands on a commander’s time often make it difficult for soldiers to gain access. The higher the commander, the more difficult it is to get a moment  of his time.

God, as Commander-In-Chief of our Universe, doesn’t become overwhelmed with time management. He always has time for you.

The latter part of this verse asks, “When can I go and meet with God. The answer is anytime.

The real question is this: Do you have time for Him? He stands ready and available to help you.
