God Hears Your Voice

I love the story in Mark 5:25 about a woman who had been hemorrhaging blood for 12 years. She had gone to every doctor and specialist she could find to get the bleeding to stop. She had spent all her money on doctors and treatments, but was worse off than before. She was broke and devastated when she had heard Jesus was in her town. She thought to herself, “If I can just touch the hem of His garment, I’ll be healed.” She didn’t feel like she had a voice to even ask Him for it, nor to even say her plan out loud. When she touched His robe and was healed, Jesus stopped and asked who touched Him. Now she was terrified and afraid to speak up, but Jesus wouldn’t let it go. Finally, trembling she came and spoke up. He lovingly looked at her and said, “Daughter, your faith has made you whole.” God had heard her voice even though she didn’t feel like He would. He hears yours too. Don’t stay silent. Tell God what you need. He hears you.

Here are some Bible verses on God hearing your voice.

1. My voice rises to God, and I will cry aloud; My voice rises to God, and He will hear me.

Psalms 77:1 AMP

2. But truly God has listened; he has attended to the voice of my prayer.

Psalm 66:19 ESV

3. In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice; In the morning I will prepare [a prayer and a sacrifice] for You and watch and wait [for You to speak to my heart].

Psalms 5:3 AMP

4. O Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy!

Psalm 130:2 ESV

5. I love the Lord because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy.

Psalms 116:1 NLT

God Sees

Have you ever felt like God was a million miles away, especially when you needed Him most? I have, and so have others. Even King David felt that way. In Psalm 10:1 he wrote, “Why are you so far away, O Lord? Why do you hide yourself when we are in trouble?” (GNT) I don’t know if it’s because we are so focused on our problem or we expect God to transport us out of the situation that causes us to feel like He’s so far away in those times.

Hagar, the mother of Abraham’s first child, felt that way too. She had been run off by Abraham’s wife because she had gotten pregnant. While she was running from her problems, an angel met her and asked where she was going. She explained how hard things were and that she felt abandoned. The angel told her to name her son Ishmael which means “God hears”. He also told her to go back to the situation she was in. She named the place Beer-Lahai-Roi which means “Well of the God who sees me”.

From that, we know that God hears us and sees us. He’s not a million miles away. There’s often times when He puts us back into situations or doesn’t take us out because He is teaching us and molding us. If we run from hard times, we will miss out on becoming who He was forming us to be. A piece of clay isn’t able to be used until it goes through the fire. Until then, it will easily crumble and the potter has to start over.

Not only did God hear Hagar’s cry for help, He heard David’s. Going back to Psalm 10, David answers his own question in verse 14. It says, “But you do see; you take notice of trouble and suffering and are always ready to help. The helpless commit themselves to you; you have always helped the needy.” If God saw Hagar and David, He sees and hears you. He’s not a million miles from you. He’s right there with you, walking through this right beside you. He is the God who sees you, and He’s working things out for your good even if you can’t see it.
