Your Open Line to God

On October 24, 1861, a telegraph line between St. Joseph, Missouri, and Sacramento, California, was completed, providing the first high-speed link between the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of the United States. This was part of the explosion of technology in the 19th century that changed the world in profound ways.

Previously, communications over such long distances could take days, weeks, or even months. But after the telegraph was completed, people suddenly could communicate  across thousands of miles within a matter of minutes.

The existence of instant communications revolutionized the ways business, politics, and military operations were conducted. It also changed personal lives. Long distances no longer provided obstacles to communication.

Today, it’s easy to take instant communication and the resulting revolutions for granted. In our modern world, distances present no barriers. People of all ages and backgrounds have access to cell phones, text messages, email, and other media. We can easily communicate with people anywhere in the world.

Yet we too often forget that in the spiritual realm we have an even more important and more instantaneous communication link with Almighty God. With Him, we’re not separated by space or time. He always can hear our prayers. He does not “slumber nor sleep” (Psalm 121:3-4). Because He always is with us, we should pray without ceasing.”

Remember: God is with you wherever you go and whatever you do. You can talk with Him anytime, day or night. You can talk about anything. You can describe your fears and anxieties. You can seek His direction and guidance. You can ask for revelation about His Word and develop a more intimate relationship with Him.

Make today a day to pray without ceasing. God is available and waiting to hear from you, right now.
