Aren’t you glad the Lord listens! Aren’t you glad the Lord answers! That’s relationship :) It’s very difficult to have one without the other in any relationship!
Don’t know about you but it’s very frustrating when there seems this tension in relationships sometimes when it appears that people listen but they don’t answer? In those instances of constant ignoring, we may remove ourselves because it appears to be no relationship at all :(
There is one constant in our lives and that’s that the Lord listens to our cries, He answers and He is the constant in an inconsistent world.
“After 3 days, they found Him in the temple complex sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions … and all those who heard Him were astounded at His understanding and His answers” (Luke 2:46-47) Not only does Christ speak but He listens! And there is nothing wrong about asking questions… apparently intelligent and full of wisdom that others were astounded at His wisdom and His answers!
What’s on your heart today that you want to share with the Lord? After you let Him know, now listen and hear what He says! That’s relationship :)
