He Will Listen To You

He Will Listen To You

11 May 2011

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

Scripture:

Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall. (Psalm 55:22 NLT)

As I read this Psalm today the song “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 truth is, the reality is, we can bring our burdens, anxieties, fears, and stresses to Our Dear Father 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.
