Not Just the ER
He is not just the ER.
This Physician is your friend.
He is as close as your voice,
And is with you ‘til the end.
He wants your daily chatter.
So He can help you grow.
If you just talk and then listen,
For what you need to know.
God is jealous of your attention.
He made you for His pleasure.
You are His special child.
He loves you beyond measure.
He is not just for emergencies.
He wants to be called on every day.
Give Him your praise in quiet times,
As you go to your knees and pray.
Go to God first with concerns.
Don’t wait until you’re in a mess.
He has all the answers to life.
He can keep you from distress.
Don’t forget all the miracles.
That He provided just for you.
He is with you every day,
And stopped many messes too.
Your job, your health, your family,
Are all gifts from above.
They are from a God of Power,
Of Mercy and of Love.
5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
James 4 :6-10
6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
A person must recognize where all the good comes from in the world. A haughty person thinks they can get what they want by what they do. They exclude God from the picture. It is important that we realize where each and every miracle comes from. When you have an episode of serious illness, you realize what a blessing that good health is. When you see the couple that want a child and you have several, you realize what a blessing childbirth is. When you see a person struggle to find a job and cannot make ends meet, you realize how blessed you are to have a job. It is important to tell God how much you appreciate all of His many blessings and not just use Him in an emergency. He should not just be used as the “emergency room”, when you are in critical circumstances. When you practice thanksgiving, it is seamless to call on God when illnesses and troubles strike. Stay in close communion with your Father in heaven every day.
