God answers

“I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me” (Hosea 14:8, NLT).

Does God answer prayers? Yes he does and he cares for us too. God isn’t a distant being somewhere out in space, unfeeling, uncaring, oblivious to our suffering. Many people seem to think this is true, but if it were, I believe life would be even tougher than it is. He’s given us so much – the earth, each other and evidence of his goodness everywhere we look (that’s another verse: Romans 1:20).

As this verse indicates, God is the source of life and he shares his life with us like a tree bearing an abundance of fruit. He answers our prayers with himself and his loving care.

One thought on “God answers”

  1. This is something to ponder. . .how much worse would our lives be if God really was as absent as so many believe. Hmm. . .that is a really dreadful thought.
