Key Words: no good thing will he withhold from them
In making a dial telephone call from memory, one number was missed and a wrong connection resulted. The call did not get through to the right person. One little mistake made all the difference.
In approaching God we must come in the way that He has designed. He has promised very definitely not to hear the prayers of those who do not come in accordance with the way He has determined. Christ said, “...no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6). It is absolutely necessary that one believe in the deity of Jesus Christ and in salvation by the blood, in order to approach God. Anyone who attempts to climb up by any other way, though the devil may give him counterfeit answers for awhile, has a “wrong number” as far as God is concerned. A Christian cannot get through to God if he has unconfessed sin in his life.
“If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me” (Psalm 66:18). But if we pray for what is a good thing for us, and if we are walking in the will of God, we are sure to get the answer to our prayer. We have the “right number” and the answer is immediately forthcoming (Psalm 84:11).
What to do:
✞Dial the right number; it is R-I-G-H-T-E-O-U-S-N-E-S-S.
