Psalm 116:2 — He has inclined His ear to me and I will call upon Him asÂ long as I live.
Recently I was shopping at a department store, and tookÂ note of the automatic doors. One door was labeled â€œinâ€, and wouldÂ automatically swing inward as you approached it. The other, markedÂ â€œoutâ€, only worked from the opposite side.
I am so thankful that Prayer – our communication with God – isÂ extended to us in a different manner. Â His doors of love opens bothÂ ways – it is not a one-sided affair. Because God answers prayer.
Our Heavenly Father is so majestic and mighty, but He listens to us asÂ we speak to him. Â Am I attuned to listen to Him when He speaks to me?Â He is always available to us. He will hear our praises and petitions.Â They may transpire anytime of the day or night, be of any length, andÂ be grand or simple inÂ language.
Likewise, He talks to us in so very many ways – perhaps through Â aÂ friend, a sermon, a Christian book, tape or radio program, throughÂ spiritual music, or through the awareness of the miracle of nature andÂ life. He definitely speaks to me through His holy Word – The Bible. Â HeÂ even speaks to us in the small still inner voice that each ChristianÂ possesses.
Thank you, Lord, that our communication is a two-way door. You Â listenÂ to us, as well as speak to us . We can talk to you as well as hear YouÂ through the door you have opened for each of your children- The doorÂ of prayer.
