April 11, Today’s thought – God Listens

Good Morning
You and I live in a loud world.
To get someone’s attention is no easy task.
But when someone’s willing to silence
everything else so he can hear us clearly,
it’s a privilege.
A rare privilege indeed!
You can talk to God because God listens.
Your voice matters in heaven.
He takes you very seriously.
No need to fear that you’ll be ignored.
Even if you stammer or stumble,
even if what you have to say impresses no one,
it impresses God—
and He listens.
Intently.
Carefully.

Your prayer on earth activates God’s power in heaven,
and Scripture says,
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”  Matthew 6:10

Your prayers are honored as precious jewels.
You may not understand the mystery of prayer.
You don’t need to.
But this much is clear:
Actions in heaven begin when someone prays on earth.
What an amazing thought!

Max Lucado from The Great House of God

Begin an ‘action in Heaven’ . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
