For Those Times When We Need This Reminder …
Scripture: The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous and His ears are open to their cry. Psalm34:15
I’m Noticing About this Scripture: (1) that the Lord is aware (2) that He is ready to hear (3) that He is on constant standby
I’m Thinking: (1) that it is so encouraging to know that God is looking out for those who are His (2) it makes me glad to be among the righteous (note to self: being righteous does not mean being perfect)
Word Definitions from this Scripture:
Toward: in the direction
Righteous: acting in accord with divine or moral law
Open: allowing access, passage or a view through
Cry: to utter sounds especially of lamentation, grief or suffering usually with tears
In my own words: The Lord is mindful of those who obey Him and He stands ready to hear their problems and sufferings.
Take Away: Our Lord cares!
Additional Thoughts: The very knowledge that our Lord cares, that He is ready and waiting to hear our cry brings great comfort. It makes me love Him more. May we ever be encouraged by this passage during times of trails and temptations.
