Is God Still Listening? 

OCTOBER 23 & 24, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Psalm 99:8 Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their inventions.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    People wonder if God is listening sometimes when they pray. Does He still hear you when you speak with Him? Well, the answer is within you. Does God answer your prayers? Have you seen results in others’ lives because of your prayers? If not, it may not be God is not listening, but for a time He may have quit answering. We serve a God who answers prayer. We also serve a God who forgives of sin. Most of all we serve a fair, just, and Holy God. It may be we are praying for our own fleshly desires. God does not always answer those prayers as we would like. It may be it is simply not God’s timing to grant our petition in prayer right now. Then again, there is the possibility that there is something hindering our prayers.

    We must be willing to find and face our circumstances and our sin. Then, when we know what is wrong, if need be, we must be willing to repent and forsake our sin. If we refuse, there may be times in which God allows us to see our prayers go unanswered. He has not quit listening. He has just quit answering. Psalm 66:8 says, “if I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:” Also in 1 Peter 3:7 it says, “Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.” Could there be something hindering your prayer life? He is still listening and still answering prayers. He is a God who never changes.

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    If you are not seeing your prayers answered and would like to see one answered quickly, try this one. “Oh Lord, if there is anything I need to confess which is hindering my prayer life, please reveal it to me now so I can have the fellowship with you again that I once had before.” Now listen to the Lord. It is up to you to be obedient to the leading of the Lord through His Holy Spirit which is in you, and the reading of the Word of God. The Lord was listening, now, are you?

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead, we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
