“But know that the Lord has set apart for Himself [and given distinction to] him who is godly [the man of loving-kindness]. The Lord listens and heeds when I call to Him” (Psalms 4:3 Amplified).
“I will listen [with expectancy] to what God the Lord will say, for He will speak peace to His people, to His saints (those who are in right standing with Him)–but let them not turn again to [self-confident] folly” (Psalms 85:8 Amplified).
Word of the Day
Beloved, I am a good listener and My ear is always inclined to you. I don’t draw near just to listen but to also respond. I have set you apart for My glory right where you are. You can display My very nature no matter the situation or circumstance. Call on Me anytime, anywhere and don’t let anything deter you from doing so. I don’t require finely crafted speeches or lengthy religious prayers. More can be done by simply calling My name than you can ever know or imagine. Try Me and see.
Always be ready to share the renderings of your heart with Me. I am listening, poised like a bird on a ledge preparing for flight, waiting to hear your thoughts and prayers expressed. Share the good and the bad— your successes and your failures. Even though I already know each and every one, both good and bad, I long to hear you tell Me. This is relationship. This is communion.
When you share, remember to stop and listen for My answers of wisdom and words of love. I long to give in return. Mutual communication is necessary to cultivate trust—necessary ingredients of any deep abiding relationship.
Remember one thing most of all. I am your heavenly Father and it is a position that I love and cherish above all, for I delight in you, My precious child. Yes, I delight in you as I delight in My Son. If I didn’t the Cross would be of no consequence. I gave Him that you might see Me and be reunited with your destiny already present and abiding in My heart (Psalms 4:3, Psalms 85:8)…Read Complete Love Letter…
The Lord hears my every word, my every cry. He inclines His ear to me and listens with an attentive heart. His ear is not deaf to me but open and ready to respond to my words. I am set apart for Him to do His good pleasure. There is no matter too small or inconsequential for Him when it comes to me. All is important. When I speak His name I am instantly in His presence and He is listening. In fact, He hears me before I even call. My every thought and desire is so important He has readied Himself to respond at the whisper of His name. Father loves me with an everlasting love and calls me His own. He delights in me and I delight in Him. In communion with Him I am connected with Him in thought and deed. My destiny is unfolding as I abide in Him. Amen
Reflect and Journal
- Take some time to reflect on the simplicity and power of just saying His name.
- Are there things you have held back from sharing with Him? He already knows all so you might as well share, good or bad. Nothing surprises Him and He is waiting to give you the answers.
- Imagine Him positioned like a bird for flight to come to you as the very whisper of His name. Reflect and respond.
