Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
Be encouraged, you serve a God who promises to listen to every single one of your prayers. No matter how big or how small, He hears them all. He receives your requests and petitions and answers them all in His own timing and in His own way. Sometimes the answer is yes, sometimes it’s no and sometimes it’s not now. It’s not always what you want but it’s always God’s will for you. You might not understand why things happen the way they do, but God knows the end from the beginning and you must trust in Him with all your heart. Therefore, pray without ceasing and pray with expectation. Keep praying, keep praising, keep worshiping because God is listening.
My flesh and my heart may fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
We are not perfect, we make mistakes and we fall to temptations and tribulations. No matter how much we want to do better we sometimes fail, we sometimes let God and ourselves down. Sometimes we question God’s reasons for why things happen and sometimes we let our faith waiver. But we serve a loving God and no matter how many times we fall, He picks us up. He continues to love us because His love never fails. He loves us not because of who we are but because of who He is. Our body and spirit may fail us, but God never will. Draw near to the Lord, put your hope in Him, for He alone is our strength and our ever present and never failing refuge now and for all eternity.
