“…the heavens, even the highest heavens, cannot contain You. How much less this temple I have built! Yet, Lord by God, give attention to Your servant’s prayer…” (2 Chronicles 6:18, 19).
It’s amazing to think that the Limitless God of the Universe condescends to listen to frail human prayers!
The key is my humility to approach God. Not as one afraid to approach, but as one who is humbly confident that He wants me to come to Him (see Matthew 6:8).
Solomon repeatedly asked God to “hear” and respond (vv. 19, 20, 21, 23, 25, 27, 30, 33, 35, 39). And God says, “I have heard you and I will continue to hear and respond” (7:12, 14)!
Oh what peace we often forfeit
Oh what needless pain be bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer
If God wants to hear from me, why do I try to handle things on my own?!
My prayers are only limited by my pride that keeps me from coming to God in prayer.
