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.


Precious Prayers

You and I live in a loud world. To get someone’s attention is no easy task. They must be willing to set everything aside to listen: turn down the radio, turn away from the monitor, turn the corner of the page and set down the book. When someone is willing to silence everything else so they can hear us clearly, it is a privilege.

A rare privilege, indeed.

Your prayers are honored in Heaven as precious jewels.

Purified and empowered, the words rise in a delightful fragrance to our Lord. Your words do not stop until they reach the very throne of God.

Your prayer on earth activates God’s power in Heaven, and God’s will is done “on earth as it is in Heaven” (Matthew 6:10 NIV).

Your prayers move God to change the world. You may not understand the mystery of prayer. You don’t need to. But this much is clear: many actions in Heaven begin with precious prayers on earth.

The Lord sees the good people and listens to their prayers. — 1 Peter 3:12

In my trouble I called to the Lord. I cried out to my God for help. From His temple He heard my voice; my call for help reached His ears.Psalm 18:6

I will provide for their needs before they ask, and I will help them while they are still asking for help. Isaiah 65:24

The power of prayer is in the One who hears it and not in the one who says it. Your prayers do make a difference.
