9-1-1, WHAT'S YOUR EMERGENCY?
Last week, I was watching a brand new show that has only been on for a few weeks called 9-1-1. It's a scripted show that follows a group of 911 rescuers and a 911 operator who takes the calls. In the beginning of one of the episodes, the 911 operator has a narrative where she talks about how she always wonders about what happens after the callers disconnect. She says that the callers always hang up the phone once help arrives.
Now, this got me thinking and it immediately touched my spirit. It made me think about God (the supreme rescuer) and how many times I have been guilty of hanging up the phone on God once he rescued me from a difficult time in my life only to wind up in another situation a month later and do the same thing all over again. How many times have I made empty promises only to let him down? And we all know God is God so he knew that I would not make good on certain things that I said I would do, and he blessed me anyway. He helped me anyway. He rescued me anyway. I broke down in tears.
The love of God is so immense. So great. So wonderful! Ephesians 2:4-5 says, "But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ--by grace you have been saved." God deserves everything we have to give. Every. Single. Thing. Why? Because he has given us every single thing he has, including his life! God loves us so much. We are his children. The kingdom of heaven is ours.
So, please, please please...don't hang up the phone on God once he rescues you. Don't hang up on him once he gets you out of that tough spot. Get on your face before him. Thank him. Love him. Talk to him. Praise him. Worship him. Adore him. Live for him. Spend that time with God. Give him your all because there isn't a single day that goes by, that he isn't giving his all for you.
Blessings and Love,
