"Is God Listening?"

With recent world events being as they are I’ve heard numerous people ask, “Is God listening?” As valid as this question seems, I think another question that is even more relevant is, “Are WE listening to God?”

We are always on God’s list. With life being so hectic, it is easy for us to think that God is too occupied to be concerned with “What is going on in our lives.” Since He is the One who created all life, I know He is interested in keeping track of all that He is responsible for. His arms are never too short to reach us, and His power never to ineffective or weak to help; and at times to deliver us from any situation.

Through the adversity of war, economic hardship and the calamity of senseless violence; prompted by hatred and sin that pounds the airwaves and floods our brains with doubts and fears—and sometimes anger, God remains. “The rock on which we cling to and the support that keeps us upright.”

We are on His list, is He on ours? Let’s not just make time for God when “tragedy and misfortune visit us.” Let’s visit with Him daily. We can tell Him what we are thinking and He will let us know what He thinks. We will tell Him what’s on our mind and He will show us what is on His. For sure what is on His mind is—loving us. Challenging us to change, all the while loving us to Him.

Is God listening? Yes! Are we?
