The Lord’s prayer – is He listening?

Does God hear our prayers? Is He listening? Does He want to help us?

Those are all valid questions. I think each one of us, at one point or another, has asked those very questions. 

Some have even asked God if He is real.

Well, I say ask Him. 

God created us. He knows we are curious and wish to understand things that seem more significant than us. 

God is bigger than anything or anyone person. 

God is so complex that we may never fully understand the scope of who God is, but don’t let that deter you.

God is also personable. He isn’t some significant scary holy entity that is unapproachable.

God is not a cookie-cutter God. He is not a one-size-fits-all deity. 

God knows we are curious. He created us to ask questions and to find answers. 

If you want to know if God is real, ask Him. Now how He reveals, that may no satisfy your curiosity. 

You might be thinking that you want God to perform some colossal miracle for you to believe fully.

We can ask but be cautious not to have such grand ideas of exactly how you want God to show you His answers. 

His answer may be so subtle that you miss it. 

One thing you should know about God, He never answers prayer the way you expect Him to. 

That is one thing that I admire about God. He always does something unexpectedly that makes me appreciate Him even more. 

So ask Him. He may answer, and He may not respond. 

God wants us to seek Him continuously. 

And please don’t think that if He doesn’t answer your question, this is the proof that He does not exist.

God wants and desires to be pursued. 

I know you might be thinking that this pursuit is too much to ask, but once you have a glimpse of God, you will know it was worth it, and you will hunger for more peeks. 

A personal relationship with God is beyond any small effort we put into it. 

We are living in scary times. There is not a better time to pursue God.
