Did it ever occur to you to ask who started this notion of prayer? Did some guy with nothing better to do, decide to talk to God and see what happened? Did some desperate parent cry out over a wild teenager? Nope, it was none of the above.
It’s all God’s fault! Look who’s talking here!
Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden.But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?” (Genesis 3:8, 9 NIV)
We hear God all the time. We might try to hide but He will seek us out. He doesn’t ask much.
But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out]. (Hebrews 11:6 AMP)
His question is so simple. “Where are you?” Isn’t it time that we answered?
Prayer-God, we are listening. What do you want to say? What do You want us to hear? In Christ. Amen.
