A Direct Connection to God

A few years ago I had one of those cell phones that doubled as a radio allowing instant “two way communications.”  An amazing piece of technology it was by a simple press of a button you could instantly be connected to anyone hundreds of miles away.  On more than one occasion I spoke to an associate of mine in California as I remained here in Florida.  This system was called or referred to as “Direct Connect” and it was the rave for a couple years or so it seemed.  You heard the alert signals everywhere you went and people were carrying on conversations with people in other parts of towns, different cities and other far away places.  “Direct Connect” has since been replaced with text messaging and other means of one on one interpersonal communication.  People everywhere are on the phone, or can be seen “texting” someone.  But, my favorite continues to be this thing called “Direct Connect.”  I thought it was the best thing ever and it revolutionized instant and rapid communications for all of us who had them.

Even today I still have another means of “Direct Connect.”  It is with my Heavenly Father.  Yes, I have a means of directly connecting with Him anytime I choose to do so.  I don’t have to worry about the position of satellites, the weather conditions, or the location of a cell tower.  I can simply bow before Him in prayer at anytime I choose and have a conversation with Him.  Praying is our means of a “Direct Connection” to God the Father.  He wants to hear from us, to ask Him and tell Him all our needs.  Prayer draws us closer to Him as we make known our requests.  Through prayer we enter deeply and directly into relationship with God and come to know and accept His perfect will for our lives.

Colossians 4:2 says; “Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving. (NKJV) Prayer is important and God’s word instructs believers to make prayer a high priority.  Yes, God wants to hear from his children as much today as He ever did.

1Thessalonians 5:17 says; “pray without ceasing.” “First of all, then I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions and thanksgivings be made for all people” 1 Timothy 2:1.  You see, it is our prayer requests that bring about real change in the world and in the lives of the people we pray for.  “The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working” James 5:16.

Release that power today by getting connected; “Directly Connected,” to the Father today.  He wants to hear from you.  “And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive if you have faith” Matthew 21:22.

Many Blessings!
