Speak to God, He is Listening!


 A God who hears, He is a God who listens.

Psalm 116:1–2 says - " I love the Lord, for He heard my voice; He heard my cry for mercy. Because He turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live." 

The pattern of human life is that we listen first, but with the Lord we are always heard before we hear. God is listening to you long before you ever listen to Him.

1 John 5:14 says, "And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him.

We are confident that He hears us. God is a listener. He is leaning in to hear your prayer.

But God didn’t start listening when we talked; He’s been listening forever. It’s who He is.

When we read the story of Bartimaeus, 
 a blind beggar in Mark 10, Jesus is leaving Jerusalem when  Bartimaeus hears that it is Jesus who is passing by and begins to scream, “Jesus, over here! Help me! Have mercy on me!” People  tried to silence him. “Shut your mouth, beggar.” Who did he think he was? Jesus was a very important person—maybe even the Messiah. This guy was a nobody, nothing but a blind beggar. But Bartimaeus wasn’t about to miss his chance. The more they try to silence him, the louder he yelled. “Help me! Have mercy on me.”
As soon as Jesus heard his sound, Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” - Mark 10:49 . Here's the favorite part. The most important person, who ever lived was on his way to do the most important thing ever done. And He stopped to listen to this beggar. Jesus listened widely. Jesus inclined his ear and Jesus healed him.

This is what you do in our quietness,  try closing your eyes and imagining Jesus standing in front of you, like He did for this blind beggar, Bartimaeus. Talk an intimate talk with the Lord and tell Him what you would like Him to do for you. Then practice your listening skills and really try to hear what God is saying to you. Ask what you can do for Him. He will listen you for sure.


Stay Blessed :)


ENCOURAGING VERSE:
Psalm 17:6 says, I have called on You, for You will hear me, O God: incline Your ear to me, and hear my speech.
