Today’s Promise : I watch over you and I listen for your prayers
1 Peter 3:12 (WEB)
For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears open to their prayer;
but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”
Promise #299: I watch over you and I listen for your prayers.
God never slumbers and He never sleeps. His eyes are always watching the righteous and His ears are always listening for their prayers. There is never a moment when God takes His eye off of you. He is always attentive to you and knows what you need before you even ask for it. (Matthew 6:8)
If we try to comprehend this promise with our human understanding, we will most likely have a brain freeze and short circuit. How can God be so attentive to me and millions of other believers all at the same time? My simple answer is “I don’t know how…but I know He does!”
King David said in Psalm 139:17-18 that God was always thinking of him and that His thoughts outnumbered the grains of sand on the seashore. David was aware of how focused God can be on each one of us …all at the same time! He is watching over you right now. He has stilled His heart and is listening for your prayers right now.
What an amazing God and Father we have! May we bask in the revelation of this truth every day and never take for granted His amazing attentiveness. Thank you Father for watching over me and listening for my prayers!
