Now is the Time

That we ought to act with God in the greatest simplicity, speaking to Him frankly and plainly, and imploring His assistance in our affairs, just as they happen. That God never failed to grant it, as he had often experienced.” – Brother Lawrence

This is a great lesson for a Christian to learn. Many Christians only address God before or after their day. Instead, we must ask His assistance in every circumstance. We shouldn’t wait until a particular situation is over, but go to Him as it is occurring. God doesn’t require complex speech, but wants us to come to Him in simplicity. He wants us to come to Him as we are, with speech that naturally flows from our love for Him. We have a wonderful God who is always present with us. He is always faithful to help His children.
