Come and listen, all you who fear God, and I will tell you what He did for me.

For I cried out to Him for help, praising Him as I spoke.

If I had not confessed the sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.

But God did listen! He paid attention to my prayer.

Praise God, who didn’t ignore my prayer or withdraw His unfailing love from me.

Although I did not write those words, I definitely feel this way!  These words are written in the Bible (Psalm 66:16-20).  God really does listen.  He pays attention to prayers.  If any person calls out to God for help, He is willing to send you help!  If anyone calls out to God in humility with a seeking heart wanting to find Him, He listens.  If we will confess our sins, even the hidden ones that are only in our heart and haven’t even made their way into our actions yet, He is faithful and just and willing to forgive us!  He does not want anyone to perish but wants everyone to come to saving faith in Jesus Christ, His perfect Son who paid the penalty for ALL our sins.  What a gift!  What a Savior!  What a loving and wonderful God!  If you are struggling today, wondering if He hears or if He pays attention; if you are having a hard time believing you can be forgiven…look up Psalm 66.  We all need salvation, we all need help, we all need forgiveness and freedom.  Jesus Christ is the answer to everything we need!  He made the sacrifice that was necessary for all mankind to truly live.  Praise God!
