He Has Heard My Voice

What a joy it is to know that our God hears us!
Psalm 116:1-2 declares, “I love the Lord, because He has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy. Because He inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on Him as long as I live.”
Think about it: the King of all the universe -- the God of creation -- bends His ear to hear from you when you call out to Him!

This fact should simultaneously humble and delight our souls!

It should humble us as we go before such a throne - the seat of all power and judgement. There, seated upon the throne is the Almighty and Everlasting Lord; there is no greater ruler or authority than He. Majesty and splendor are His clothing. Yet, He is not a distant God, unconcerned with His creation. No, He is the God who draws near and hears the cries of the weak.
He stoops down to hear from the humble.
He hears our pleas for mercy.
He rescues and delivers those who call upon His name.

And such is our delight, that He delivers and delights in His children. He loves us and welcomes us as His adopted co-heirs with His son Jesus. Indeed, it is because of His salvation that we are welcomed into His presence. So let us enter into His gates with thanksgiving and praise! Let us rejoice in Him and let us give the Lord all the honor due His great name!
We cry out, and the merciful God of heaven hears us!

Believer, take your cares and concerns, your worries and fears, your hurts and pains, your worship and praise, your givings and thanks -- take it all to Him! For He hears you, so call upon Him as long as you live!
Speak to your God, and be assured that He hears you.

May God richly bless you in Christ,
