Let's Go Back to the Bible

Stop everything, turn on speakerphone, and listen

Parents for generations have experienced this, so it is not exclusive to us. With both of our girls gone from home, when the phone rings and it’s one of them, everything else stops. We put it on speakerphone, so that we can both hear, and we listen to whatever is on their heart. There’s nothing better than seeing one of their names on the Caller ID. Do you suppose this is the way that it works in heaven when one of God’s children calls upon Him?

Do you suppose that when God checks the Caller ID and sees that it is one of His children calling that He stops everything, puts it on speakerphone for the entire Godhead to hear, and they all listen to whatever is on the heart of His child? I know that God doesn’t have an actual phone and Caller ID, but when the golden bowls of incense with a saint’s prayer arrive at the throne of God (Rev. 5:8; 8:3-4), don’t you know that He immediately will “incline” His “ear” (Psa. 88:2), “hear from heaven” (2 Chron. 7:14) and “answer us when we call” (Psa. 20:9). He doesn’t send us to voicemail! Knowing that, don’t you want to call on Him more often!
