I love the LORD because He hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because He bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!
Oh my goodness! What joy You bring to me this morning as You remind me You do hear my prayers! I am so honored and humbled to know You love to hear from me. What a special Companion You are!
I am also reminded that when I don’t get the answer I want, at the right time, or things don’t turn out the way I thought they would, it doesn’t mean You don’t hear.
I’m reminded about how Daniel prayed for 21 days before an angel appeared to talk to him. The angel was delayed, not Your answer!
And, when Your people asked for a Messiah, You waited centuries before You brought Him to this world.
There are so many examples in Your Word, Jesus, that tell me Your timing is not mine. You wait until the perfect moment, and then act. Sometimes I’m in just too much of a hurry.
Help me to remember today that You do hear, You have bent down to hear the whispers of my heart. I will never stop talking to You!
