Do you remember reading Dr. Seus’s book, Horton Hears a Who? In it, Horton the elephant hears a “Who” that lives on a dust speck. When I think of that story, I remember Jeremiah 33:3: “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things which you do not know.” (New American Standard Bible)
Wow! The all-powerful, all-knowing, ever-present God and Creator of the universe listens to each one of us “Whos” on this “dust speck” Planet Earth! He not only listens, He answers! That means He even listens to and answers me! It makes me exclaim with the psalmist, “What is man [or woman] that you [God] are mindful of him/her, the son/daughter of man that you care for him/her?” (Psalm 8:4)
Dear Father, Thank You for the privilege of prayer. Thank You for answering with Your wisdom. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
