“I love the Lord because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!” Psalm 116:1-2
Too often, Christians think of the Lord as being way up yonder in heaven, at a distance and too busy to concern Himself with our earthly, mundane affairs. But the truth is that God longs to be intimately involved with every aspect of our lives. And as we seek Him through prayer and the study of His Word, He will prove it to us time and time again. God cares for you so much that He is eager to relate to you on your own level, no matter where you might be spiritually. The Lord wants you to continually experience spiritual growth, but He doesn’t wait until you’re mature in your faith to speak to you. And He will speak to you about anything and everything that concerns you, if you will seek Him.
As the psalmist wrote in today’s passage: God is so merciful and good–and He loves you so much–that He is willing to “bend down” and listen to your concerns, and answer in ways you can understand. Don’t wait a minute longer. Turn to Him right now with a greater passion than ever before with those things that are on your heart–and receive the wisdom, comfort, and reassurance that can only come from a loving God.
