God Hears Us

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 1 John 5:14

Sometimes I cry out to God and all I hear in response is the echo of my own voice. I’m tempted to think He’s not listening, doesn’t care, or has better things to do with His time than listen to me whine. But His word assures us that He is always present and listening. God hears us.

He always responds. Perhaps not in the timing or way we would like, but He always responds in love in the way that is best for us. His ways and purposes are beyond our understanding, but His love is always within us and around us, snuggled against us in relentless compassion.
