God Is Listening

God Is Listening

When you wonder if anyone is listening, know this: God is. Your voice matters in Heaven. He takes you very seriously. When you enter His presence, He turns to you to hear your voice. No need to fear that you will be ignored. Even if you stammer or stumble, even if what you have to say impresses no one, it impresses God, and He listens.

He listens to the painful plea of the elderly in the rest home.

He listens to the confession of the prodigal.

When the guilty beg for mercy, when the spouse seeks guidance, when the mom steps out of the chaos and into the chapel, God listens.

Intently. Carefully.

God is standing on the front porch of Heaven, expectantly hoping, searching the horizon for a glimpse of His child... And the name He calls is yours.

Because He turned His ear to me, I will call on Him as long as I live. — Psalm 116:2 NIV

When a believing person prays, great things happen. — James 5:16

You will call My name. You will come to Me and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will search for Me. And when you search for Me with all your heart, you will find Me!Jeremiah 29:12-13

Whenever you want to talk, God will listen.


God Is for You

God is for you. Turn to the sidelines; that’s God cheering your run. Look past the finish line; that’s God applauding your steps. Listen for Him in the bleachers shouting your name. Too tired to continue? He’ll carry you. Too discouraged to fight? He’s picking you up. God is for you.

God is for you.

Had He a calendar, your birthday would be circled. If He drove a car, your name would be on His bumper. If there’s a tree in Heaven, He’s carved your name in the bark.

Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? God asks in Isaiah 49:15 NIV. What a bizarre question. Can you imagine feeding your infant and then later asking, “What was that baby’s name?” No. I’ve seen you care for your young. You stroke the hair, you touch the face, you sing the name over and over. Can a mother forget? No way. But even if she could forget,... I will not forget you, God pledges (Isaiah 49:15 NCV).

You will rest in His love; He will sing and be joyful about you. — Zephaniah 3:17

God is the One who saves me; I will trust Him and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord gives me strength and makes me sing. He has saved me. — Isaiah 12:2

I, the Lord, made you, and I will not forget you. Isaiah 44:21 NLT
