The God who stoops …

The stock brokerage firm E.F. Hutton used to run a television ad with the tag line, “When E.F. Hutton talks, people listen.”

The ad was certainly a little exaggerated, especially in our busy and loud world where it’s difficult to get even the people closest to us to listen well. We all can understand a desire for wanting to be heard.

That’s what makes our interaction with God so amazing. Our Maker, the holy Creator of all things, stoops down to listen when we talk to Him …

“I love the Lord because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!” Psalm 116:1-2.

When you speak to God, He listens intensely, He wants to hear every word you’re willing to share with Him. Are you taking time to talk with God, and to listen to Him as attentively as He listens to you?
