May of us wonder does God hear us. Yes God does hear you, but God does far more than hear your cry to him. The very next verse of this Psalm says “He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.” God is the rock upon which you should build your life. If you should try and build your life on any other foundation it is the same as building it on sinking sand. Jesus said it this way “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” (Matthew 7:24-27 NIV). Choose today to put your trust in God so that your “house” can withstand the storms that will come your way.
