I’ve thrown myself headlong into your arms – I’m celebrating Your rescue. I’m singing at the top of my lungs, I’m so full of answered prayers”. Psalm 13: 5-6 (MSG)
God is always listening, always available, always willing to hear and answer your prayers. In fact, to walk with you throughout each day, to hear what is on your heart, and to share His, was His fervent desire from the beginning of time.
Genesis 1 tells us of the relationship God had with Adam, the first man—how they walked, worked, and shared together, enjoying each other’s company, day by day.
And this is as true today—for you! God loves to be with you, to hear your heart, all you carry as a concern, and all that you celebrate too. You are the One He longs to be with, good days and bad, that will never change.
He waits for us to bring our pain and our prayers, because He is wisdom. He has the answers and He Himself is the fullness of all we need. God our Father, Protector and Shield, keeps us always in His care. Jesus is our Salvation and our Song—our Healer and our Help. Holy Spirit is our Comforter and Companion, always by our side.
Our temptation can be when we are in pain; when we have done something wrong; or when something wrong has been done to us; to run away and hide. Wisdom would say to run to God instead and into His wide-open arms of unconditional love and acceptance.
That is where your help is, beloved—your healing and your hope. Here you will find, as the light of His love floods in, the fullness of all you need, and the substance of all your answered prayers!
Lord, sometimes I fear that I weary You with all my prayers, but I know that is not true. You have said You want to hear them all, You wait to hear, and really, before I even say a word, You know!
I bring everything that is my heart today, Jesus, my hopes, my dreams, my fears, and with great thanksgiving, I leave them all with You. I know You are working all things out for my good and for Your glory, as I stay close and follow You. I thank You that it could be so.
Holy Spirit, help me also I pray, to hear all that is on Your heart, and to be mindful and caring, to be interested and invested, in all that matters most to You.
I thank You Lord that even now, You are at work, answering my prayers and hearts desires in above and beyond kinds of ways. Empower me Father, and allow me to be at work, in and for, all that is in Your heart too.
Let the whole world rejoice, I pray. Our God, infinite in mercy and wisdom, is on our side! His answered prayers are on the way!
