THE LORD WILL HEAR WHEN I CALL
But know that the Lord has set apart for Himself him who is godly; the Lord will hear when I call to Him. Psalm 4:3
We as believers are godly because He has counted us so! He has reckoned us as righteous by faith in His sight, just as Abraham believed God and it was reckoned to him as righteousness! We are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus!
That said, when we call upon God we know that He hears us because He promised us and whatsoever we ask in His name we receive by faith in His name. David sought the Lord when he was in distress and He delivered him from all of his fears! Psalm 34:4
In order to hear we must obey and repent of any unforgiveness and be still and meditate on His word and trust Him to do that which we ask of Him. In the 23rd Psalm the shepherd leads his sheep to still water because they wont drink from a rushing stream because it scares them. So it is with us, we cant hear Him for all the commotion around us, so, be still and know!
Be angry, and do not sin. Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the Lord. Psalm 4:4,5
