Have you ever wondered if God is really listening to your prayers? I do sometimes.
Lately I’ve been doing a lot of reading about the Holy Spirit and His role and importance in our lives and our growth and development as children of God. And honestly as I’ve been reading I’ve been feeling not even a little like a failure. To the point where last night I was lying in bed and my prayer was specifically about this, about what I can do to listen to, and feel more fully the Spirit in my life.
Normally I start each morning reading my bible, then I’ll read my daily page from Jesus Calling and then I’ll write my blog post. This morning I ended up doing everything in reverse. I wrote my post about trusting in God, then since my computer was already open to my ebooks, I decided to read my daily devotional next and then jump into my bible. These are literally the first words I read. You can’t make this stuff up. “Thank Me for the glorious gift of My Spirit.”
So yes, God absolutely hears our prayers, he knows the questions of our hearts and he will absolutely answer us when we come to him with our earnest petitions. It’s in subtle ways and, in today’s case, blatantly obvious ones that our God reminds us that we are important to Him and how much He loves us.
How is God speaking to you today?
