But God did listen! He paid attention to my prayer. Praise God, who did not ignore my prayer or withdraw his unfailing love from me.
Psalm 66:19-20 (NLT)
Were you ever tempted to lie to someone because you thought telling the truth would get you in trouble? The author of today’s verse took the risk of confessing his sins to God and he was so surprised at God’s reaction he could not wait to tell everyone. He wrote, “Come and listen, all you who fear God, and I will tell you what he did for me.” You see He came crying out to God with praise and confession and God heard his cries. He wrote, “For I cried out to him for help, praising him as I spoke. If I had not confessed the sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.” And what was the result? God listened. The Father paid attention to his prayers. The author concludes, “Praise God, who did not ignore my prayer or withdraw his unfailing love from me.” Today you can have the same results. Bring your praise, confession and prayers before God. He will hear you. He will not withdraw His unfailing love from you.
Dear God and Father, thank You for Your unfailing love that does not reward me according to my sins, neither ignores my prayers. Thank you for the fact that I can come to You with all my sins and requests and know that you will not shut me out. I praise You for Your unfailing love. In Jesus’ name.
