We all get so busy in the month of December! Finishing up on target goals for the year while keeping up with the holidays is no simple task. The Lord gently reminded me of the scripture recently that He bends, or inclines to hear our prayers.
This scripture speaks of effort and care.
Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live. (Ps.116:2) This is such a simple truth, yet profound. The Creator of all heaven and earth puts effort into listening for the voice of those He calls His own. Whether it’s asking for help or offering up thanksgiving, He listens.
I heard the Lord whisper, not only do I give my ear to my children, but when I hear them my beats with passion. How sweet and tender our Lord can be. Have you ever been so excited to hear someone’s voice that your heart goes pitter patter?! Our Lord is so passionate about us we make His heart beat with passion. Our voices are connected to His ear and His heart. Your voice pulls on Him. So what will you say to Him today, while you have the passionate attention of the Lord and Master?
do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Phil. 4:6
