“Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear.” Isaiah 59:1 (NIV)
Does it sometimes seem like your requests to God are not heard or perhaps not important enough for His attention? These words from the prophet Isaiah it this verse can help us remember God's ability to help His followers and His willingness to help them. God gave these words to remind his people in Isaiah's time that if they did not experience God's help it was not His fault. If we were to read the next few verses we learn that it was the sin of the people that caused God to not hear and hid His face from them. God wants us to know that He was able to help then and He is able to help now. Nothing is so separated from God that He cannot reach it and he is able to hear when we ask for help. Our God is listening and hears our call. His ear is turned in our direction waiting for us to express our prayers to Him. God will intercede for us, He can reach us in our situation and give us the help we need.
