The Lord wants so much more than to just visit you during a difficult time in your life. He wants to be involved in your life forever. This is the purpose for which you were born.

Salvation is a gift. You need to ask Jesus for it. He has died and paid the price. But unless you ask Him to be your Savior and Lord, you do not have a relationship with Him.

In order to be saved from this bleak existence, you must first believe and then ask. Salvation is not something you earn; it is a free gift of God.

"Until now you have asked for nothing in My name; ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be made full" (John 16:24 nasb).

Savior God, my life has a specific purpose in You. Help me to live out that purpose. Amen.
