Remember Who You’re Talking To

Encouragement for your daily walk with God

Have you ever had an opportunity to speak with someone of worldly esteem? Perhaps a person of nobility or a famous Hollywood type. I once read about Robert A. Cook [1912-1991], a former pastor, author, radio broadcaster, and President of The King’s College [New York], when he spoke at Moody Bible Institute. 

The day before his speech at Moody, he had been in Washington DC at a gathering where he had personally spoken with the Vice President, George H. W. Bush. He went on to say that a little later, he had a brief conversation with President, Ronald Reagan.

He was silent for a moment to let that soak in with the students who seemed to be in awe of his opportunity.  Then he smiled and said, “But that’s nothing. Today, I talked with God!”

Think about it, dear Christ follower. Each and every day we have the amazing privilege to speak with almighty God, Creator of heaven and earth, Ruler of all things, perfect in holiness and righteousness, merciful, omnipotent God! He calls us His children and told us that He is concerned for our every need. 

The next time you bow your knee to Him, keep in mind precisely who it is you are talking to!

In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven… Matthew 6:8-9a
