Do You Believe God Will Hear You?

Micah 7:7: “But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me.”

“Oh my God,” I whispered and then sobbed as I looked at the crypt with my son’s name on it. It had been two and a half years since my last visit to San Diego.

I stood alone as the sun shone over the military cemetery, and the breeze blew through my hair. Such a beautiful day, and yet my heart ached to see my son. I placed a patriotic red, white, and blue arrangement of flowers in a wheelbarrow at the foot of the crypt and took pictures of it.

“God, I’ve asked you before and I’m asking you again, don’t let my son’s death be in vain. Use it for good in my life and the lives of others. Let it be for your honor and glory and for furthering your kingdom here on earth.”

“I [watched] in hope for the LORD” and said, “My God will hear me.” I sensed God’s presence and comfort. God reminded me of how he has answered that prayer in the past and assured me he will continue to do so.

That day and for the next few days of my San Diego visit, God allowed me to minister to others. I understood their pain because of the pain I have had. My God did hear me.

What about you? Do you believe God will hear you? How often do you watch in hope for him?

Dear God, help me watch in hope for you. Amen.

Application: When will you wait for God to hear you?
