“So Jesus stood still and called them, and said, “What do you want Me to do for you?” They said to Him, “Lord, that our eyes may be opened.” So Jesus had compassion and touched their eyes. And immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him.” (Matthew 20:32-34)
I find that in the busy seasons of life, I easily forget to ask. Well, that is not completely true. I ask of our Lord — but the small things. But those great, huge, bigger-than-life things? They won’t always get asked as I live only to make it to the next minute.
What I love about our Lord is that He has a listening heart. All our worries and fears, requests and dreams — He hears them. Because God listens to us. Whatever it is that you have on your heart. Those big dreams, those miniature hopes. They all matter to Him. He listens to you, whether you realize it or not. And He cares for you, so much.
“’For every one that asketh receiveth.’ This does not mean you will not get if you do not ask (cf. Matt. 5:45), but until you get to the point of asking you won’t receive from God.” (Oswald Chambers)
So let’s pour out our hearts to Him today, friend. Tell Him about all that weighs on your heart. Tell Him all those dreams and hopes, hurts and sorrows — knowing that God listens to you. And then watch as His grace pours down like rain, touching your heart and mine.
