If God had Voicemail

I receive daily devotionals designed to help me begin my day with God's Word & give me a Spiritual Boost from Godsminute.com . One devotion that I recently got reminded me that God doesnt possess human qualities. I forget this a lot because Im surrounded by human's all the time, so its easy to project human qualities on God. To remember who God truly is its important that I spend time in the Word & in remain in constant contact with Him.

Now what if God changed like we do, and was to busy
to hear our prayers? Thank goodness God said:
"I am the Lord, I do not change." (Malachi 3:6)
So sit back and enjoy a humorous look at what prayer might
be like today if He did!
We have all learned to live with "voice mail" as a necessary part of modern life. But, have you wondered, what if God decided to
install voice mail?

Imagine praying and hearing this:
Thank you for calling My Father's House.
Please select one of the following options:
Press 1 for Requests
Press 2 for Thanksgiving
Press 3 for Complaints
Press 4 for All Other Inquiries.

What if God used the familiar excuse..."I'm sorry, all of our angels are busy helping other sinners right now. However, your prayer is important to us and will be answered in the order it was received,so please stay on the line. "Can you imagine getting these responses as you call God in
Prayer? If you would like to speak to:

Gabriel, Press 1
Michael, Press 2
For a directory of other angels, Press 3
If you'd like to hear King David sing a psalm while you are holding,
please press 4.
To find out if a loved one has been assigned to Heaven,
Press 5, enter his or her social security number, then
press the pound key. (If you get a negative response, try
area code 666.)
For reservations at "My Father's House" please enter J-O-H-N,
followed by 3-1-6.

What if you heard, our computers show that you have already
prayed once today. Please hang up and try again tomorrow.

This office is closed for the weekend to observe a religious
holiday. Please pray again Monday after 9:30 AM. If you need
emergency assistance when this office is closed, contact your

Thank GOD, He Doesn't Have Voice Mail And
He Always Listens When We Pray!!!
