God always hears

Apr 17, 2024

Psalm 18:6

But in my distress I cried out to the Lord; yes, I prayed to my God for help. He heard me from his sanctuary; my cry to him reached his ears.

As a child I remember having trouble talking to my grandfather on the phone because he was losing his hearing and in desperate need of hearing aids. My mom would always tell me to “talk loud and clear when you talk to Grandpa because he can’t hear you.” Many times I would need to repeat myself until he finally heard me. It was such a blessing for him and me when he was able to purchase hearing aids. I am reminded that while humans may sometimes be hard of hearing, God never has a hard time hearing us.


God always hears. His hearing is perfect. Psalm 18:6 says, “In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.” We can take comfort that when we talk to God about our troubles and concerns He doesn’t have trouble hearing our voice. Pray to Jesus today and have confidence He will always hear your prayer.


That concludes our devotional for today. Let us finish with a word of prayer. 


WORD OF PRAYER

Dear Lord, Thank You for being a God that hears our prayers. It’s so wonderful to know that it doesn’t matter where I am or what I’m going through I can call out to You for help and You will hear my voice. Don’t let me ever forget that You always hear even when it may not seem like it at the moment. Lord, please give me the confidence that You always hear me and will always answer my prayer right on time. 


In the name of Jesus, amen.
