God Always Hears

My God will hear me. (Micah 7:7)

Friends may be unfaithful, but the Lord will not turn away from the
gracious soul; on the contrary, He will hear all its desires. The prophet
says, "Keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom. A
man's enemies are the men of his own house." This is a wretched state
of affairs; but even in such a case the Best Friend remains true, and we
may tell Him all our grief.

Our wisdom is to look unto the Lord and not to quarrel with men or
women. If our loving appeals are disregarded by our relatives, let us wait
upon the God of our salvation, for He will hear us. He will hear us all
the more because of the unkindness and oppression of others, and we
shall soon have reason to cry, "Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy!"

Because God is the living God, He can hear; because He is a loving God,
He will hear; because He is our covenant God, He has bound Himself to
hear us. If we can each one speak of Him as "My God," we may with
absolute certainty say, "My God will hear me." Come, then, O bleeding heart,
and let thy sorrows tell themselves out to the Lord thy God! I will bow
the knee in secret and inwardly whisper, "My God will hear me."
