He’s listening

1 Peter 3: 12

For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and His ears attend to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.

The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous. Who among us is righteous? We all are but not because of anything we have done. Today’s scripture can be a great breakthrough for someone but it has to be read through 2 Corinthians 5: 21 which reads, “He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” God made Jesus to be sin so that we could be the righteous. There is nothing you can do about it; you are the righteousness of God. This is a part of the substitutionary work of Jesus.

Now if you have fully accepted that you are the righteous then you can get very excited about today’s verse. God’s eyes are upon you. That is shouting ground right there but read on. It also says that He is paying attention to your prayer. His ears are tuned to your prayer line.

Did you ever wonder if God was listening to you when you pray? You no longer need be concerned about that. He is listening. He is waiting for you to say something and His angelic host is standing by to carry out their marching orders when you speak out words of faith. Everyone is attentive and listening. Now, what would you like the angels to do for you? Speak to your Father in positive, Word inspired, action words. If all we do is complain about our circumstances the angels have nothing to act on. We need to direct their actions in affirmative ways and the absolute best way to do that is to say what the Bible says. They know how to implement the promises of the Bible. So now that you know God is listening say what the Bible says about you. Speak the promises of God into your life. Ask God to fulfill His Word in you.

He is listening. What have you to say?
