Recently we purchased a GizmoPal for our 6 year old. It's essentially a smartwatch that tells you the time and weather and can make and receive calls from only four numbers. So, at any moment, my wife and I can always know where she is, and we can always reach her and she can always reach us.
Basically, my 6-year old got an Apple Watch before I did.
I'm kidding... kind of. We really only bought it in case of emergencies, but we're grateful for the technology.
After some thought, I've decided that, not only do I want and need an Apple Watch, but God is always just a phone call away. And he always knows where I'm at and what I'm going through in that exact moment. If you find yourself in a position where you really need God and need to hear from God, open up the Good Book and give him a call. When you pray, he hears you and responds.
"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him." - 1 John 5:14-15
Lord, thank you for being so near to me. Thank you for hearing me when I pray, and thank you for always meeting my needs. Speak to me today I pray, in Jesus' name, amen.
