“And if (since) we [positively] know that He listens to us in whatever we ask, we also know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that we have [granted us as our present possessions] the requests made of Him” 1 John 5:15, Amplified
I returned home one night and didn’t have the door key. Needless to say, my husband whom I love, was inside sleeping like a rock. He didn’t hear me knocking on the door like the police. He didn’t hear me ringing the doorbell repeatedly. He didn’t hear me throw a bucket next to the window. That man was completely out. So I yelled to our bedroom window, “Baby, open the door!” A minute later there he was standing at the front door. I asked him, “You didn’t hear all of the noise I was making?” He said, “No”. I asked, “What woke you up?” He said, “I heard your voice.”
Maybe you’re like me, you’re making a lot of noise trying to get God’s attention. Maybe you’re wondering why He’s not answering you and why He hasn’t changed your situation. But always remember, God hears your voice. He knows what you’re going through. He cares about every detail of your life. He can and will open great doors for you that have seemed impossible. Just because He doesn’t seem to be responding doesn’t mean He’s abandoned you. He will answer in His perfect timing and in His own creative way.
Prayer: Father God, I thank you that you hear me when I pray. I know if you hear me, you will answer. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
