How amazing is it that we have a God who listens when we speak?!?
And how amazing that we have a God who speaks when we listen?!?
We’ve had our H2O Kent Pastors Retreat this week. And during one of our times of prayer together, the wonder of our ability to communicate with God really struck me. More than just a conceptual appreciation, I actually felt His involvement in our conversation! I felt Him lift my emotional burdens and spiritual burdens as I spoke them out to Him. New ideas entered my mind, and new feelings entered my heart as I paused and listened in prayer. Isn’t that ridiculously amazing?!?
Psalm 20 delves into this same sense of wonder and worship. And then, towards the end of the psalm it says, “Some nations boast of their chariots and horses, but we boast in the name of the Lord our God.” I boast in the name of the Lord our God! I’m glad to be a part of His family!
