I've always wondered when people get upset, why do they turn from God? Instead of calling on his name in a time of trouble, they take other means of action. Perhaps, it's because they are shallow in the scriptures or have no basis to pierce heaven making manifest the reality that God's hand is not shortened.
Then again, sin could be the issue, fully knowing that the just must live by faith. It could be that they are not familiar with the Scripture we have just read from Isaiah 59:1.
Father God will always hear prayer and will respond with his awesome love and power. How can I be sure? As I look to Jesus, I see a man who said, "lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world." See what I mean.
