We always desire to be listened to. We feel valued and important when people give their time and attention to what we have to say. Most people constantly yearn for someone to listen to their thoughts, their ideas, their goals, their dreams, and even their fears. In today’s busy and often disconnected world, unfortunately, not everyone has somebody who is willing to listen at the time when they need it the most.
As believers of Christ, we should never have this problem. We should always be aware that there is Someone up above who is always listening. This is the assurance that we have from God, our Father.
15 The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
17 The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
–Psalm 34:15, 17
God is always there to listen to us. We can talk to Him anytime, anywhere. He is on the line 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are truly blessed because we consistently have Someone whom we can pour out our heart and soul to. Whatever it is that we have in our minds, whatever we have in our emotions, we can always share them with God through prayer. God is listening. He is constantly waiting for us to come to Him.
And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
You might ask, “How do I know that God is listening?” You may not see Him physically; He may not answer you vocally; but you can easily sense His presence once you have built a strong personal relationship with Him. He hears our voice and answers us through blessings and opportunities in the form of physical things, people and events that lead us to our destiny.
