An Open Invitation

“My heart has heard you say, “come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, Lord, I am coming.” Psalm 27:8 (NLT)

Ponder for a minute this verse, David must have penned this Psalm during a moment of complete despair. How many times have we been in David’s shoes at the point of desperation? Imagine, the God of the universe sitting on His heavenly throne and the earth is His foot stool. Just like with David, God being concerned about the weightiness of our hearts due to life struggles, situations and circumstances. He cares when our hearts are heavy burdened with pain, fear, sorrow and brokenness.

We, like David, plead with the Lord to hear our anguished cries for help. The expression of our prayers show the dependence upon which we seek the Lord to answer. Our hearts are crucial and vital in the sustaining of life. God was precise in the workmanship of our bodies…especially our hearts. God Almighty can speak from heaven and pierce our hearts with His voice. The Psalmist states it’s the heart that hears the Lord say, “come and talk with me.” An open invitation by God in all His glory and splendor. He desires to spend time in a loving and caring conversation with an attentive ear and heart towards His children.

As the verse says, “Lord, I am coming.” Metaphorically, during difficult seasons of my life, I have envisioned running with arms outstretched reaching out for our Father to catch me. As I sit on His lap with my head resting on His shoulder unleashing a barrage of needs and concerns no matter how big or small. Bombarding Jesus with a pleading heart. As the Lord patiently listens to a one-sided conversation of cries for help from trembling lips and tear stained eyes. As He restores peace with the reassurance that He hears our emotional appeals.

“Father tune our ears to always hear Your voice calling us to draw near to You.”

For His Glory
