Confidence That God Hears You

Sun rays through clouds in AZ

Don’t roll the idea around in your thinking that God might or might not hear you or answer your prayer when you pray. “The Lord is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayer of the righteous” (Proverbs 15:29, ESA). That type of thinking isn’t based in the truth and promise of God’s Word. Paul encourages us to let our prayers be known to God and His peace will guard our hearts and minds [from thinking contrary] (Philippians 4:6). Too often we’re not sure IF God will answer. Why? Because we’re uncertain and not grounded in His goodness, love, grace, and our right standing in Jesus Christ. Know that because you’re a believer, you’re righteous in Christ, and His will is His Word—of love and grace. As Joseph Prince puts it, “if He loves you enough to give you Heaven’s best—Jesus, how will He not with Jesus also freely give you all things (Romans 8:32)?” Be assured as you pray He is listening (Psalm 66:19). Continue trusting and standing on His Word, His promises. Your answer is coming.
