“I love the Lord, because He has heard my voice and my supplications.” -Psalm 116:1-

Are you a good listener? There are in fact those who are good listeners. There are times that all of us need to have a sounding board to share our frustrations and as in the prayer our thanks and praise for the one who listens. God is always ready to listen. He is never too busy. As a matter of fact, He waits to hear our voices in prayer. He wants us to call on Him.

It doesn’t matter if you are in trouble, having health issues or in a state of joy. He is ready to laugh with us, rescue us or have an intimate conversation about life and family. And you can trust in Him to always show His love and understanding. And do you know why? It is because He loves you.

For instance, look at verse 5, “Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yes, our God is merciful” (NKJV). Because of His graciousness we know that in the midst of difficult times, we can be calm. It is that peace that passes all understanding that helps us through those tough times.

And when those times come we know that we can trust Him to hear our cry and come to our rescue. Yes, I love the Lord and He is trustworthy.

 Have a blessed day,
David Barrett
