Prayers and Tears

Sometimes when I am not feeling well I think maybe Jesus is too busy to hear my prayers. Or maybe He thinks I am just a whiner and is tired of hearing the same repeated prayers from me. I was about to feel this way when I happened upon this verse;

I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will heal you.
2 Kings 20:5 niv

That is what God told Isaiah to tell Hezekiah who was dying and had prayed to God to be remembered by Him.(2ki 1-3) He not only heard Hezekiah’s prayer He healed him and gave him 15 more years of life.

Is the Lord any different today? Of course not, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, girl-863686_640and forever. (Heb 13:8) What He said to Hezekiah He says to you and me.  He hears our prayers and sees our tears. There will be healing, maybe not today, it may be delayed but it will happen.

Do you think I just “happened” to see  the
2 Kings verse?  No?  Me either.

Blessings this day of grace,

Scripture unless otherwise noted,
New Living Translation

1 Kings 11:4 nlt

heart-297313_640Solomon was warned about relationships with those who worship other gods.
He was a wise man yet he was lead astray by those he loved and his heart was divided
Our hearts can be fickle and our minds muddled.
We must be aware of our weaknesses for we are only as strong as our weakest spot.
If we give our hearts only to those who are devoted to the LORD we will not be led astray,
 and we will remain faithful to Him.

Who have you given your heart to?
Who do they worship?

Blessings this day of grace,
