The Lord is Near // Psalm 145:18

The Bible promises that the Lord is near to all who call on Him and in truth. Jesus would later identify Himself as truth personified (John 14:6) which sets up the fullness on how we can call out to God through Jesus Christ. This gives us the courageous confidence in knowing that we are heard, and the Lord’s power is activated, when we call out to God in the name of Jesus. This is emphasized in the New Testament where we read that “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Acts 2:21, Romans 10:13). And since Jesus’ name is translated as, “The God Who Saves,” you can know that it’s true. Thanks be to God, indeed!
