God Listens

Psalm 54:2  “Hear my prayer, O God; Give ear to the words of my mouth…”

A young boy was saying his prayers before bed with his mom and dad one night.  He began to pray in a loud voice  “Lord, thank you for my family, thank you for my teachers, and bless my grandma.  Also, please make sure she remembers that I would like the brand new red bike we saw today for my birthday!!”  His parents told him he didn’t have to pray so loudly and that God can hear him just fine.  The boy answered “I know, but Grandma is in the next room and she can’t hear very well.”    David in Psalm 54 is running from a jealous king and is calling out to God for help (1 Samuel 24).  God eventually delivers him in miraculous fashion as only God can do.  David had confidence that God would hear and come through.  This is one of the reasons that God calls David a man after His own heart.  Davids prayer ignited his faith to see beyond impossibility.  If it seems that God isn’t listening to you, maybe He is prompting your faith.  Remember God’s delays aren’t necessarily his denials.  Faith sees what our physical eyes can’t.  Remember God is always working through the details and God is never hard of hearing.  The answer is around the corner.  Have peace knowing that God know every detail of your prayer (Philippians 4:6-7).
