From “The Word For You Today” by Bruce Christian


Bill Gates was hooked up to the computer network we call the internet.  Using it, subscribers can send electronic mail (e-mail) to other users of the internet.  Originally, Gates had an e-mail address just like everyone else.  But he got into trouble when The New Yorker magazine published it-now anyone could send the computer genius an e-mail.  In no time he was swamped with five thousand messages-he simply couldn’t handle it.  So he armed his computer with software that filtered his e-mail, allowing important messages through and sending all the others to electronic oblivion.  We are limited; we can handle only so much, and do only so much.  God, on the other hand, never tires of s-mail (spirit mail).  His ear is always open to our prayers.  And He has an unlimited capacity to help.  You’ll never Him say, “Due to an unusually high call volume I am unable to take your message at this time.  Please call back or leave a message.”  No, the Bible says, “He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.”  “The desire of the righteous will be granted” (Pr 10:24 NKJV).  “The prayer of the upright is His delight” (Pr 15:8 NKJV).  “Call to me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know” (Jer 33:3 NKJV).  “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you” (Jn 15:7 NKJV).
