Psalm 27:7, New King James Version

“Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice! Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.”

God hears your voice. He says to you, “I know you. I know when you get up and when you lie down. And there is not a word on your tongue that I do not already know.” (see The Bible, Psalm 139:3-4) “Yet, I love to hear your voice. I love it when you speak to Me, like a loving parent enjoys hearing the voice of his/her child. What would you like Me to do for you in this day?”


But God does hear! God does understand! And God does love you so much that He will do something about that which is troubling you so deeply.


When you pray to the Lord, even when you don’t know what to say—perhaps especially when you don’t know what to say—have confidence that God hears, and He will answer.


That is the expectation of David in this Psalm. He concludes verse 3 by saying that he will ‘prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.’ He has resolved that he will pray to the Lord, and then he will watch to see what God will do.


Your prayer time is not complete until you actively look for the answer! God will hear His children’s cries. And God will work all things out for the good of those who love Him. “Whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith” (Matthew 21:22, NIV). So don’t forget to look up from your prayer, confident that God has heard you, understood you, and He will answer you.
