BY YOUR SIDE

Journal Entry by Chris Watling

S – Scripture: Psalm 145:18  (NIV)
The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. 

O - Observation
I would like God by my side in all areas of my life, relationships, finances, work, health etc.. but is He? As this verse says, the Key to have Him by your side is to call on Him. Most of my life I rely on my own strength and can get easily caught in just going through life rather than looking to God. I often have God as my emergency/backup plan.

A - Application
To have God by my side, I need to remember to put Him first, to call on him in prayer in all areas and times not just when I think I need some emergency help.

P - Prayer
Jesus I pray that I would put you first in all areas of my life, I need you by my side as I walk through life and I pray that I would be reminded to call on You not just in times of need but in all areas of my life.
