Psalm 34:4 NKJV - "I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears."
Prayer is seeking God and calling out to Him. Our Daily Verse speaks of the assurance that when you seriously seek God and pray, He will hear you! God listens when we pray. And in our praying we call on Him whether it be with our fears or with our joys. We reach out to Him and find that He is already reaching out to us. He loves our company and the Psalmist speaks of the benefit of being "delivered...from all...fears."
Christian, I have learned to bring my distress and upsets to my Heavenly Father. He welcomes me into His throne room and kneels with me in prayer and Christ not only hears me pray, He joins me in prayer! Remember what Hebrews 7 tells us, "He ever lives to make intercession for us."
If you ever feel distant from God stop trusting your feelings! Trust the fact that when you seek God - He is there. And He will fill your heart with confidence that He will handle every distress, or He will rejoice with you over every blessing!
Seek Him - He's listening.
