Father, Are You Listening?

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Ever wonder if God is even hearing your prayers? I certainly have. I try to tell myself that He always hears me and He is always with me. But, when I’m in the middle of a crisis, I forget everything!

The fact is, much of living a successful Christian life is through faith and not feelings. I have to ignore my feelings a lot in lieu of what God has said in His Word. He doesn’t mix words and He means what He says and even if I’m praying about something for years, it doesn’t matter how long it takes for the answer to come. He heard me the first day I prayed and all the days in between.

Hebrews, the faith chapter, even talks about Christians who died never receiving the promises on earth but still believed that God will reward them more in the life to come (Heaven). So, I have to ask myself how important is having what I want here on earth? Is having my own way all the time really going to make me eternally happy? Can’t Jesus living inside me be enough?

I should never have to ask if God is listening, He sees my heart and knows me unconditionally.
