God Is Listening

King David wrote a good chunk of Psalms. He wrote in the desperate times, the good times, the perilous times, and basically every other time in his life.

Being a writer…I appreciate David’s vulnerability and his willingness to express it.

David would seek God when he was at the mercy of someone else’s choices (King Saul trying to kill him) and when his own choices caught up to him.

He never blamed God. He had a legit relationship with God, and understood who God is. God is merciful. God is ever present. He is persistent and consistent.

God never left David. Their relationship was permanent. God’s love unconditional.

When I’m struggling…I curl right up and live in Psalms. They remind me that the answer is always pray, trust God, and worship no matter what.

Why is that the answer? Because God is listening and loves me unconditionally, just like King David.

UNCONDITIONALLY.

Point to ponder while you wander…

God is listening to you and will answer you…

I will praise You, for You have answered me, and have become my salvation.” Psalm 118:21 NKJV

“On the day I called, You answered me; And You made me bold and confident with [renewed] strength in my life.” Psalm 138:3 AMP
