Psalm 10:17 The desire of the humble You have heard, O Lord; You make their heart attentive; You bend Your ear.
DESIRE="Epithumia" in the greek and means desire, passionate longing, eagerness, lust. Refers generically to a "strong desire" of any kind, without consideration of its being a good or bad desire.
HUMBLE=tapeinos in the greek and means humble, lowly, in position or spirit (in a good sense).
There is a saying that goes like this "the humble" child taste the grace. Proverbs 29:23-Pride ends in humiliation, while humility brings honor.
It is with humility that the Psalmist in this text confidently declares that God HAS heard his prayerful cry. He was certain that God would intervene on his behalf and had answer his prayer.
Has humility and confidence drove you to a place of assurance that the Lord your God has heard and answer your prayer? The Psalmist does declare that He answers the humble. Does this describe you?
We are reminded in Psalm 9:12- God remembers those who suffer; he does not forget their cry, and he punishes those who wrong them.
People of God, if you have a cry in your heart after God, you can rest assured on today that God is soon to answer you. Not in your timing, but in His perfect timing He promises to answer you so keep the faith.
People of God, the Lord your God hears you when humbly bow down to pray. Your prayers have not been in vain for the Lord your God hears you when you pray. His ears are inclined to your cry.
Again, the Psalmist reminds us that it is the Lord that makes our hearts attentive and it is the Lord that bends His ear to hear our humble cry.
People of God, regardless of what you may be going through, regardless of the severity of the pain or suffering you may be experiencing right now, trust God in the process for He has inclined His ear to the humble cry of His children. Yes, God hears you! His Word declares it!
People of God, the Lord your God will not withhold any good thing from them that walk upright before Him.
To those who not only desire what God desires for your life but also walk in humble submission to God's will for you life, you can rest assured on today that not a word of your prayer falls on deaf ear for we are reminded in scripture that the Lord our God inclines His ear to our humble cry.
Hebrews 11:6-And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.
People of God, keep praying and keep believing by faith for the Lord your God "Hears you" and He promises to answer you.
