“I love the Lord, because He hears my voice and my supplications. Because He has inclined His ear to me, therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.” (Psalm 116:1-2)
The Lord hears you even when it is tomorrow, you are speaking and the you who is in this moment does not know what you are going to say. The Lord hears all that is said and even what is not said. What a privilege to be in the Lord’s presence and by grace to stand before Him and praise Him. Come before the Lord with all your heart and praise the Maker of all things, for He alone is worthy.
Lord, I often live in a world of pretend. I pretend that You are not listening unless I am specifically speaking to You. I pretend that You have not answered my prayers. Clear my head and my heart to rejoice in the truth that You are always listening, not eavesdropping as sinners do, but listening because You love us. Teach me, O Lord, the way I should go and teach me to listen to others as You do.
Holy Spirit, every day You are here and You are listening. Teach me to be aware of all that is around me that I would not be focused upon myself, but become what You intend. Guide me in the way of eternal life that I might now and always live into the life of Christ to which I have been called. Guide me in the way of faith to walk humbly knowing that You are always with me. Amen.
