He Hears

Psalm 4:1

Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have relieved me in my distress; Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.

             God always listens.  Do we always listen?  God always answers in His perfect timing.  Now we have to realize the answer could be yes or could be no.  The answer we are seeking also may come in stages.  We have to listen and see what He is showing us so we do not miss any phase of the answer.  If we miss a stage we may miss the blessing, if we hurry a stage we may miss the blessing, if we wait and see and put it all together we know we have received the blessing.

Stages can help us grow in our faith.  Grow in knowing He is showing us in His perfect timing to truly show us His faithfulness.  If we hurry the result it becomes all about us and not Him.

If the waiting is causing stress or making you want to help understand there is only one solution.  Get back on your knees and pray.  Call out to Him in your storm with a distress signal of a cry for help to see if you missed something or you are still in the process with Him.  You have to put your complete trust in Him.  Too many times we want to help or others want to help, yet the true help we need comes in His timing and not ours.

Understand God loves you and hears you.  Put your complete trust and faith in Him knowing He hears your prayer.
