The Lord Listens

Tim* was visiting Tom’s* hometown. He mentioned, several times that he wanted to meet with Tom, but he ran out of time.

One day, Tim took the commuter train to the city. When he got on the train to come home, he looked up and saw Tom. Both men had spent the day in the city, and were riding home on the exact same train. They had a good long conversation.

The Lord determines our steps (Proverbs 16:9).

The Lord listens to what we say (from Malachi 3:16).

*The story is true, but names have been changed.



What Moves the Hand of God? Part 11

What moves God to hear our prayers?

His grace alone — We come to His throne of grace, by the Spirit of grace and supplication, in the name of the Son who is the fullness of grace and truth.*

“Let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. We will find grace to help us when we need it most (from Hebrews 4:16).”
