He's listening

Today's readings: Hosea 1:1-3:5, 1 John 5:1-21, Psalm 124:1-8, Proverbs 29:5-8

John tells us today that God is listening to us. And we KNOW that He will give us what we ask for.

Does God always give us what we ask for? Well, other places in the Bible we're told that some of our prayers get a no answer because we ask for things just to spend them on our passions. In other words, if you ask for a Lambourghini or for a hundred million dollars, just so you can be wealthy and not have to work anymore, you're probably gonna get a no answer.

But if you ask for wisdom, He will say yes. If you ask for faith, yes. Love? yes. To be closer to God? Yes. To love other people more? Yes. These are all things that you KNOW God will give you a yes answer to.

Ask, Seek, Knock... and He will say yes.

Thanks for hearing us, God.
