Believe! God Hears, Listens to & Answers Our Prayers!

For years I have heard people talk about how God has "given" them a "word" upon which to focus, but I did not personally feel like I experienced this "word" from God. However, I have to say, as of late, this has changed. Whenever I read the Bible, hear a sermon or just see what God is doing in the lives of the people I know and love, the word which continues to come to my mind is, "believe".

Not only do I continue to see this word, but I have been able to see how God is answering prayers! My heart is overflowing with joy at how God is doing what He said He would do . . . look at Jeremiah 29:11-14a . . .
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you" declares the Lord.
And look at 1 John 5:14, 15 . . . 
And this is the confidence we have toward Him, if we ask anything according to His will He hears us. And if we know He hears us in whatever we ask, we know we have the requests we have asked of Him.
And look at 2 Timothy 2:11-13 . . .
Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with Him, we will also live with Him; if we endure, we will also reign with Him. If we disown Him, He will also disown us; if we are faithless, He remains faithful. 
Yes, I believe! Yes, I will continue to believe and am looking forward to learning what God's plans are for me and those I know and love as he hears and answers my prayers. 

Today I want to encourage you to believe, call upon God and seek Him, knowing He promises to listen, hear and answer!
