Scriptures: Psalms 6:8-10
As human beings we have a basic desire to be heard: we all feel the need to know that others are listening. We want others to value our opinions and we want to the opportunity to be heard.
There are different types of listening: listening to answer, listening because a person cares, listening to pacify, listening for personal gain, listening to win an agrument, or listening to meet a need.
You can have confidence that God hears you, David wrote: "The Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping." God hears the pain of your heart and feels your emotional struggles. The Lord is listening because He cares and wants to meet your need. David said: "The Lord hath heard my supplication." What does supplication mean? "To ask for humbly or earnestly, as by praying." When we beseech God He listens. He values our opinions. God knows that we want to be heard.
Our feelings shift when we know that God hears us. Our fear is replaced with confidence. Just as much as you want to be heard, God wants us to hear Him.
