God hears our heart’s cry
Those who know me, know I love to pray, spending precious time with God, sometimes talking, sometimes listening. In the quiet of the early morning, in the hustle and bustle of life, in the office with my husband, in the car with my children, in the cafe with friends, walking and praying around the school, at church, well really wherever I am. For me it is always a good time to pray. I know that God hears our heart’s cry.
Over the years I have seen God answer many of these prayers, in many different ways, and mostly not in the way I expected! God is faithful.
Prayers from the heart
But then there are the other sort of prayers. The prayers that come from that deep place in your heart, knowing that man cannot fix it, only God can bring the change. We leave the request at the foot of the Cross, genuinely believing that one day, God in His wisdom and timing will answer it.
Life goes on and that prayer is no longer on our lips. It hasn’t been forgotten, it just isn’t the main focus anymore. Occasionally it is brought to the surface again, triggered by a situation or a conversation, and that cry of your heart comes out again, “God I am choosing to trust You, that You have heard the cry of my heart and You have got this sorted.”
Lord, you know and understand the hopes of the humble and will hear their cries and comfort their hearts, helping them all! Psalm 10:17 TPT
God is faithful
And then that “one day” comes, and the prayer is answered. God is faithful. There is an overwhelming sense of God’s love and a deeper understanding that He is always at work in the unseen. By His grace we move a step closer to the maturity that He is calling us to.
He must increase, but I must decrease. John 3:30 NKJV
