God Is Too Busy For You


“God is too busy for me to bother Him with my problems” or “God doesn’t have time for me with all the problems in the world” are phrases that some people use. Some people do not want to mention something to God or pray for something to go well because they are afraid of “jinxing” it. These are lies that the Devil loves because the less you pray the better for him.

“6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” 1 Peter 5:6-7

Yes He is God and is in charge of everything that exists but finding time is not an issue for the One that created time, how could God not have time for you when He exists outside of time? How could the One that created time be restricted by it?

“But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” 2 Peter 3:8

Some people really do believe that God has “just too much going on” and is too focused on wars and world crisis to be able to worry about what is going on with them but this is just not true.

“Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.” Isaiah 40:28

There is nothing that is too hard or too insignificant for God.

“Ah Lord God! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:” Jeremiah 32:17

It is important we never let any of the excuses mentioned above stop us from involving God in our lives even with something that seems insignificant. He should be the first one we turn to for anything we are going through.

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalms 46:1
