Daily Devotional: August 24, 2023 – Psalm 116:1-2

“I love the Lord. He heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.” – Psalm 116:1-2

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

Let’s spend a moment today reflecting on Psalm 116:1-2: “I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.” What powerful words of faith and love, don’t you think?

They remind me, and hopefully you too, of a comforting truth – our God always listens. How reassuring it is to know that no matter whether we’re deliriously happy or going through the deepest pits of sorrow, God is there. He’s tuned in to our cries for help, to our shouts of joy, to our whispering worries. We are never, ever alone.

I bet we all recall times when it felt like our world was falling apart. But, remember that moment you got the best news ever? God was intimately present in all those moments. This verse just underscores that amazing truth. His love is as huge as it is incredible!

As you step into a new day every morning, as sunlight filters through your window, remind yourself to say hi to God. Share your day with Him – joys, sorrows, apprehensions, and thanksgiving. Take a moment to absorb this one simple thing: He’s listening…and He loves to hear from you. Isn’t that just wonderful?

My Prayer

Dear God, thank you for always listening to us. For being there in our happiest moments and on our toughest days.

As we journey through life, remind us to come to You with every little thing. Create in us a steady faith like the Psalmist, ready to call on You as long as we live. Teach us the comfort of knowing You’re always there, tuned into our joys and fears. As firm as our rock and as comforting as a friend, You are there.

We love You and trust You. In Your name, we pray. Amen.
