Today’s Devotional: God Always Has Time For Us

Have you ever tried to have a conversation with someone who clearly didn’t have time for you? It can be awkward and even demoralizing. To you, the conversation is meaningful; to them, it’s a distraction.

This devotional from Our Daily Bread reminds us that God always has time for us. When we come to him, we find him waiting for us with open arms:

How often we say or hear, “Not now, I’m busy” or “I’m sorry, but I just don’t have time.” Yet, our heavenly Father, the Master and Creator of everything, always has time for us. The psalmist wrote: “The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry. . . . The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles” (Ps. 34:15-17).

God is not like the emperor or a busy executive who tries to avoid interruption. Instead, the Father’s joy is to listen and respond to His children. “The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit” (v.18).
