Are You Still There?

“Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.” Psalm 130: 2
“God is still at work. Even in the silence. Even in the unknown.” Lysa Terkeurst
I’m sure we have all experienced those moments when we are talking on our phones and then realize that our call has been dropped or we only hear silence after repeatedly asking, “Are you there?” More than once I have carried out lengthy conversations with no one on the other end of the line!
It may seem to us at times that our prayers are like a dropped call. We wonder if the Lord is still on the other end of the line or if we have only been talking to ourselves for the last half hour. Our feelings have nothing to do with our conversations with the Lord. He always hears; he hears before we’ve even said a word out loud. I wish I had the reasons behind those times when things seem to go silent but I don’t. I just know that regardless of what is happening on our end He always hears.
It may seem that your prayers are not being heard. Trust Him and know who He is. Our God always hears the cries of his children. Times of silence are times to trust even more deeply. Today may you trust that each word of your prayer has been heard and the answer is on the way.

Think About This: “Jesus hears us, and in His own good time will give an answer… He may sometimes keep us long waiting…but He will never send us empty away.”
