He Will Listen To You

He Will Listen To You

11 May 2010

Today’s Reading: 2 Samuel 19-20; Psalm 55; Matthew 28

Scripture:

Pile your troubles on God’s shoulders – he’ll carry your load, he’ll help you out. He’ll never let good people topple into ruin. (Psalm 55:22 MSG)

As I read this Psalm today a song called “He Will Listen To You” by the late poet-songwriter Mark Heard began running through my head.

When the weight of this world crashes down on you
God will listen to you
When the sky turns black and your thoughts turn blue
He will listen to you

When the river of tears cannot be contained
He will listen to you
Like a drowning man in the pouring rain
God will listen to you

When the light explodes in a world gone wrong
He will listen to you
When your heart beats strong with a grateful song
God will listen to you

Chorus:
He will listen to you
Always listen to you
He understands how His children feel
He will listen to you

The reality is, the truth is, we can pile our burdens, anxieties, fears, and stresses on the Lord’s shoulders and he really will listen and he really will take care of us. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. (1 Peter 5:7 NLT)

Prayer:

Father, I give you my burdens and cares this morning. I know you love me. I know you love my family. I know you will listen to me. I know you care, you can, and you will take care of me. Amen.
