The Lord listens!
Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. – Jeremiah 29:12
The one who imagined and created the universe, who is all-powerful and who exists in all time and space, listens to us.
This is a little hard to grasp. Why does God care? Even if He did make us, why would He be that concerned or even be that interested? Aren’t we small and simple specks in the whole of creation? Nothing compels Him to hear us, He is not obligated by some rule. Yet He does so because of His great love for us.
Listening to us (and promising to listen to us) is another way in which God shows His love for us. He cares for us intimately and individually, and God chooses to treat each of us with deep affection and loving concern. He isn’t just capable of hearing us, He does so because He truly loves us and is powerful enough to listen our every word.
Come to the Lord and talk to Him. He loves you, and listens!
