"I love the Lord because He hears and answers my prayers. Because He bends down and listens, I will pray as long as I have breath!" (Psalm 116:1-2, NLT)
The psalmist was eager to pray and approached God with enthusiasm because he was confident that God was not only stooping down to listen, but also that God was intensely interested in what he was saying. How many times do you feel like nobody is interested enough to really listen to what you have to say? How often do you feel your concerns are glossed over, trivialized, or ignored by those to whom you try to express them?
One of our greatest needs is to be known and understood by someone who we value. What a blessing for Christians to have that need met by the One who will not only listen, but who understands and loves you so deeply.
Your Heavenly Father is waiting to bend down and listen to you today. Spend time with Him in prayer.
