“I can’t understand you. Your voice is cutting out.”

“Talk louder, I can’t hear you.”

Frustrated, we end the call without finishing – or maybe even without starting – the conversation. Unfortunately, that happens even in our high-tech world.

As God’s children, we have the assurance that He always hears us. Our voice doesn’t cut out; we don’t have to talk louder. Going through one of the most difficult circumstances of his life, the Psalmist David reiterated that fact in Psalm 34, speaking from his own experience when he wrote:

“I sought the Lord and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.” (v. 4)

“This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.” (v.6)

“The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry.” (v. 15)

“The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them from all their troubles.” (v. 17)

God hears us when we cry out to Him in times of trouble and when we are paralyzed by fear. His ears are always open. No dropped calls, fading voice, unfinished conversations or frustration.

If you are distressed, anxious, troubled or carrying a heavy burden, cry out to God in faith, and be encouraged, because our God hears us!
