A God Who Listens

RG AUDIO 012512Psalm 55:1-11

Betrayals, disloyalty, acts of violence and injustice have been faced by many people. King David faced these things. Much of this mistreatment came from David’s own family and his circle of former allies and supporters. This left him with a heart that was fearful, overwhelmed, and heavy. You can hear David’s agony throughout Psalm 55. David pleads, “Listen to my prayer, O God, do not ignore my plea; hear me and answer me” (vv. 1-2a).

Maybe your own voice has uttered similar groans and cries when you have been mistreated, especially by someone close to you. David’s regard for God did not leave him faithless. He knew who to call upon. God was his constant companion and friend. David asks God to deal with his enemies.

If we regard God in our daily routines, stay close to Him, and hide ourselves in his presence, the Lord will not ignore our pleas. He will hear and answer us when we call upon him in faith.
