God Hears Us
Posted on July 27 2020
“And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for.” 1 John 5:14-15
Today’s Encouragement: We can be confident that even when we may feel like we are failing or are not being heard, God is still at work, honoring our prayers because He is a prayer-hearing God. If we know that He hears us, John says, then we know that we have obtained the request that we made of Him. Even when we cannot see it, God is working on our behalf. We are commanded to walk by faith and not by sight. We should put our heart and confidence in our prayers along with our trust to His words and promises that will provide us riches and mercy.
We are to remain in fellowship with our heavenly Father, by confessing our sin before His heavenly throne, and we are to abide in Christ in humility of heart and in willing obedience to His word for without maintaining a day-by-day trust in the Lord, and a solid faith in His unchanging Word - it is impossible for the saved saint to please our heavenly Saviour. (“Daily verse”, n.d)
The more we live for His praise and glory, the more we will find that we pray according to our heavenly Father's will, and the greater will be our confidence that He will hear and answer our prayers - for this is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. Just have faith that God hears your prayers and He will be faithful to answer them.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I know You are working and moving in my life on a daily basis. When progress in my situation seems at a standstill, please help trust and look forward in faith to see Your goodness. In Jesus Christ’s Name, I pray. Amen.
Reflect: How can you faithfully commit to having confidence in what God is doing?
