He Is Listening

“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!”
Psalms 116:1-2 (NLT)

There are a lot of reasons to love the Lord. But one that we often take for granted is, His listening ear. The Psalmist wrote that he loved the Lord because God heard his voice and prayer for mercy. He painted a picture of God bending down to listen, like an endearing grandfather does his grandchild. How we underestimate God’s loving attention. Studies have shown that shame in a young child is often related to the lack of response from their caregiver. The child made a bid for attention and the caregiver paid no attention. The child’s conclusion is shame, “there must be something wrong with me.” Not so with God. When He hears our voice, when He bends down to hear our very whisper, how our soul responds in love. Today, spend time with God. He longs to hear your voice.

Father, thank you for being there when I pray. Thanks for Your loving attention to the needs of my heart. I love you, Lord.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
