When I called, you answered me; you greatly emboldened me. Psalms 138:3 NIV
Don’t you just hate it when you are talking to someone, and they are not listening? Yes, I am guilty of not paying attention to what someone is saying. Often, we are thinking of something else, or think about what we can say next. Listening requires skill. It is a skill that I need to develop. When you listen intently you are showing respect and love for the person talking. God is the ultimate listener. There may be a million voices lifting up prayers to Him, yet He hears each one. I have no idea how He does it – but then He is GOD. I am thankful He hears my prayers, no matter if they are not lovely, He hears each one. He also responds. His answers sometimes are not what we are asking but they are the best solution to our request.
