The Lord Hears


1 Peter 3:12 – “For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their prayers; But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”

We live in a world of distractions. The hustle and bustle of everyday life, the chatter on social media and the overwhelming stress we face can easily distract us from having an in-depth, personal relationship with the Lord. Even though we worship only one God, we still struggle to make time for Him in our over-cluttered lives.

God, on the other hand, has an entire universe to run, millions of His children to care for and major world issues to resolve. And yet, He listens to each of our individual cries. He knows the number of hairs on your head. He knows when you sit down and when you rise up. He knows your innermost thoughts and prayers.

God treats each of us as the apple of His eyes. You don’t have to wonder if God hears your prayer, if He sees what you’re going through. God sees, God hears, God understands. When you seek the Lord and call out to Him, you can be assured that He will be Your help, strength and comfort.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for hearing my prayers and seeing my current situation. I believe You will be my light and show me Your way. Help me remain in Your will at all times. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
