God Hears and Sees You

As I visited my mom in the hospital, so many thoughts went through my mind. I replayed how she was both mom and dad to me during my short years on this journey called life. She said to me, “I feel so tired!” I told her, “Mom, you have been a blessing to so many people; you’ve been a great blessing to your family, a great blessing to your church family, and a great blessing to all those who have sought you out for advice, prayer, and deliverance from various oppressions.” We never realize how many lives we have touched or remember all the many conversations we have had with helping others. All we know is that we did what God wanted us to do and for that we give Him glory. “But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.” (2 Thess. 3:13 KJV)

We should give the praise to God because it is HIM who works in us and through us to do His good will. He leads people to us so that we can reach out a helping hand and minister to them, not only the things of God, but also the strength that we have within us. It all comes from God. We can’t take credit for the changed lives and all the good we do and so ultimately, we have to give God the glory. It is HE who strengthens us, it is HE who leads and guides us, it is HE who tells us what to say and when to do. We allow God to give us the right word, His Word, that is needed for that day, for that hour, for that minute.

It amazes me how God uses ordinary people to perform extraordinary acts of good toward others and for their betterment. It also amazes me how God never tires of our voice, HE never tires of us reaching out to him, HE never tires of seeing our tears, HE never tires of us shrugging our shoulders because we do not know what to do next. Oh yes, HE hears and sees us through the good, the bad, the ugly, and everything in between.

The Lord considers not only our words but also the inner motives of our hearts. God wants us to take Him at His word; truth is available through no other source. We must receive and believe His Word to benefit from His Word. And we can take great consolation in the fact that God is always and everywhere present. We can be assured that if we continue in Him, the Lord will most certainly fulfill His purpose for each of us.

“Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my sighing. Listen to my cry for help, my King, and my God, for to you I pray. In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. (Psalms 5:1-4)
