Often we’ll pray about something and wait for God to answer. Nothing happens so we pray again – and again. Sometimes we feel as if He isn’t listening or that our problem isn’t important enough for Him.
The truth is, God heard our words the first time. But He responds to our hearts and not to the words we speak.
Sometimes we ask God because it’s the right thing to do – but do we mean any of the words we’re saying?
Sometimes, we ask Him because we know God answers and we’ve read His Word and know that He hears us, but do we actually trust Him to answer?
The problem is not that God doesn’t hear us because we know that HIs Word is always true – the same yesterday, today and forever. So when we don’t get answers to our prayers, maybe it’s because our heart is really not in it as much as our words are.
“At the voice of thy cry, when He shall hear it, He will answer thee.” ……………..Isaiah 30:19
When God hears the cry from our heart and not from our lips, that’s when He answers because that’s when we are truly seeking Him.
