“I wait for the LORD, my soul does wait, and in his word do I hope.
My soul waits for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning,
I say, more than they that watch for the morning.” ~ Psalm 130:5-6 (UKJV)
I give thanks that we have a wonderful God who hears and answers our prayers.
God’s word admonishes us in Hebrews 4:16: “Let us therefore draw near with boldness to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy, and may find grace for help in time of need. (WEB)
The word mercy in this verse means “kindness or goodwill towards the miserable and the afflicted, joined with the desire to help them.”
Our Creator wants very much to help us. He wants us to give Him our burdens.
“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time; casting all your worries on him, because he cares for you.” -(1 Peter 5:6-7 WEB)
The word “grace” like mercy in the Hebrews scripture means “goodwill, loving-kindness & favor.”
As we give God our burdens, He wants to give us His blessings in return.
““In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.” ~(Philippians 4:6-7 WEB)
Thank You, Heavenly Father, that You cherish each one of us as if we were the only one You had to love. Thank You that You hear our every prayer and that no detail of our life escapes Your notice.
You eagerly wait for us to pour our hearts out to You for You are truly the “God of all comfort who comforts us in all our afflictions…”
You hear and answer every prayer we prayer in Your own way and time. Please give us the faith to believe in You, the hope to wait on You,
the grace to know that You will never disappoint our trust in You.
We love You, Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
