Listen And Prosper : Daily Prayers, Bible Verses & Devotionals


He’s Always Listening

“I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears.” (Psalms 34:4)

Good morning beloved! Rejoice! For a new day has begun.

Start the morning with praises on your lips for God is always listening.

He listens to all your cares and concerns. He listens to all your stories of victories and apparent defeat.

He listens, even when it feels as though He’s a million miles away.

Psalm 66:19 says, “But truly God has listened; he has attended to the voice of my prayer.”

In fact, God knows your heart, even before you utter a single word.

So why then do we still pray?

Well, have you ever had a friend who you just love confiding in? Sometimes you may even repeat the same story over and over, even though it’s already been heard many times before.

Why do we do that?

In the English language, we say we’re getting something off our chests. It feels good knowing that someone who truly cares about you is listening, doesn’t it?

Don’t you sometimes feel a sense of relief when you finally tell a loved one a secret? Or perhaps vent about the troubles of the day with a close friend?

The truth is, God is closer than your closest friend. And He longs to commune with you.

We don’t pray so that He knows what’s going on in our lives. He already does!

We don’t pray so that we can beg and plead with Him to answer our prayers. He already said ‘YES’ and ‘AMEN’ to all His promises.

And we certainly don’t pray so that we can be holy. He already gave holiness and righteousness to us as a gift through Jesus Christ.

So why then do we pray?

We pray, because God longs to listen to us.

Just like parents watching and listening fondly to their children – even though they may be speaking gibberish at times, God loves listening to you!

Do you think God will remove certain blessings from you simply because you said a few words out of sequence for a memorized prayer?

No! A thousand times no!

Your healing, your abundance, your security, your peace – they’re all a done deal.

And even though He already knows every detail in your life, He still loves to hear it from you!

So today, as you pray, drop any pretense that you may have.

Speak to Him as you would a close friend, a loved one.

You don’t need bombastic words to impress Him. And you certainly don’t need to pretend to be holy or perfect before Him. (Remember, He already sees you as Holy through Jesus’ work! There’s no need to pretend!)

So come, come as you are, to pray, worship, and praise His Name today.

For He’s always listening.

Be Greatly Blessed!

Action Steps:

Consciously commune with God more frequently today. He longs to hear from you!

You can speak to Him about everything in your life. The big things, the small things.

If it matters to you, it matters to Him.

You can vent at Him at times even, like the psalmist did.

But at the end of the day, always know that God cares for you. He loves you. And He listens to you.

He wishes to bless you even more intently than you wish to receive His blessings. And He’ll see you through whatever you’re facing today, to an even better tomorrow.

Let’s pray…

 
Prayer:

Father, thank you for always listening to me.

No matter how trivial my concerns are, you always treat them with the utmost care.

Even though you hold up the entire universe in your hands, yet, you care about the smallest detail in my life.

Who am I? That you’re so mindful of me?

Me! One amongst billions of people, on a planet that’s the tiniest of specks in the vast universe.

But O Lord, knowing that you’re listening, knowing that you care, knowing that you’re always with me, brings an unspeakable peace to my heart.

Just knowing you’re here with me gives me the strength to go out into the day and glorify your name.

I can’t begin to understand how much you must truly love me. But I do know, that even though it’s just a tiny portion in comparison, I love you too.

In Jesus’ Mighty Name,

AMEN!
