No matter what the world looks like through our human eyes, God knows the Truth. He knows all. No matter whether we think He is listening to us, responding to us as we pray, He is doing so according to His will.
He is Omniscient. He is Omnipotent. He is Omnipresent.
I call out, “Hear me, O God.” Consider and hear me O LORD my God;… Psalm 13:3a
Do You call to me so that I listen to You?
“Hear, O My people, and I will admonish you; O Israel, if you would listen to Me!” Psalm 81:8
You are Omnipresent, always with and before me. Your Word is before me. Your grace surrounds me. Your mercy rains upon me.
You are Omniscient, all knowing. You see all. Nothing is hidden from You, Father, even that which is hidden in our hearts. You know.
You are Omnipotent, all-ruling, almighty. You have authority over all, my Heavenly Father.
Too often I do not hear You because I am making noise, asking, begging, telling. I desire to sit before You, but I get busy and forget. I am sorry.
What I need is…
desiring to hear the One and only One.
“Hear me, O LORD; hear me that this people may know that You are the LORD God and that You have turned their hearts back to You again.” 1 Kings 18:37
Listening — hearing …
Your tender love speaking to my heart
Your Word to me personally on the pages of the Holy Bible
Your still, small voice clear and beautiful, quiet and sweet into my ear
Listening is loving so much that I am calm and still, waiting.
Your wisdom sails into my being and stays.
Hearing is having ears and a heart open that I may use Your wisdom as I walk with You.
I want to listen; I want to hear — so much so that Your voice becomes a piece of me that naturally flows in and through, a non-ending stream. I desire You, My LORD.
… “Brothers, you know that in the early days God made a choice among you, that by my mouth the Gentiles should hear the word of the gospel and believe.” Acts 15:7b
Obedience walks with listening. How can I be listening if I am not obeying You?
Hear, O Israel, and be careful to obey… Deuteronomy 6:3a
Observe and hear all these words which I command thee, … Deuteronomy 12:28a
I am … I want to be…
an obedient child
that God has called me to be.
“Whoever is of God hears the words of God….“ John 8:47a
