Does God Really Hear Us?

Updated on January 24, 2014

I gaze upon these three kittens this morning and I started thinking that right now I would like to be one of them. They have no worries as their Mother comes and bathes and feeds them. Life is really very simple for them; but...

In time, these kittens will have to be on their own depending on something bigger than themselves to feed them and nurture them. Will I hear their cries when they need me? Will Maggie? Their may be times we have something much more important going on and they will just have to wait or find their own food. They will have to make decisions that could affect them physically and may be harmful. They may make good decisions and have good things come their way. Does that mean that the decision they make is wrong even if it doesn't come out good or in their favor? Maybe that bad decision will make them stronger and better able to deal with life further on down the road.

I titled this hub in this way hoping I could answer some questions for myself. I find that sometimes just talking or typing, we answer our own questions without input from other humans.

Of Course

Yes, I believe God hears our every cry and our every prayer.

Do we also cry out to Him when things are going good? Do we praise Him?

Unlike us with kittens, God always has time and doesn't forget us, nor is He too busy. God answers every call we make to Him. At times, we just don't listen or we expect a different answer.

God sometimes says no for our own good; He sometimes tells us to wait patiently.

I know I am praying to God on some very stressful decisions I need to make at this time. Patience is very difficult and I am praying that all my decisions will glorify Him. Will I make the proper decisions? Time will tell.

I do find that I make much better decisions though if I study His Word (The Bible) and pray consistently.

I considered something else; one person is praying for one thing and another the opposite, whose prayer will God answer? If you were God, how would you handle such a problem? I would do what is best for all involved. Sometimes, I would let the outcome be the outcome. A good example would be two football teams both praying for a win.

I believe our Heavenly Father wants the very best for all of us. If we seek Him, He will guide us with good decisions, but if we rebel, it is our freewill that will harm us and maybe those around us.

My Prayer

I pray that the decisions I make will help, not hurt all the people I love and cherish.

May God control the outcomes in a way that would completely glorify Him!

I am not a kitten and must make decisions that can affect many lives and I ask God to guide me and ,if need be, slap me upside my head so that my decisions will be good ones.

For those of you I love, I pray my decisions are favorable to you in the future. Please forgive me if they seem not at first, but trust in God because I know His plan will overcome and in the end all will be true and right.

May God bless all who read and seek a better world with proper decision making so that God is glorified!

May Jesus reign supreme!

      Take a good look at the world today, it has only gotten worse since recorded history began.

      The world today is like watching an animal slowly dying in pain and agony, and no one has the mercy to just kill and put it out its misery.

      This is a constant throughout recorded history, and it includes tens of billions of people.
