Does the Lord hear faith in your heart as you pray? Galatians 3:2 says, “This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?” Verse 5 says, “Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?”
What does faith sound like to the Lord? He knows our hearts, and every thought before we think it. He knows when our heart is engaged as we pray.What does your faith sound like as you wait? Waiting is a trial that refines our faith.
I love this scene in 2 Samuel 5:24. David was told to wait until he heard the sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry trees. He was listening with faith. The Lord told him that as soon as he heard the sound he was to advance. That means that he was waiting with an engaged heart.
Psalm 62:5 says, “My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him.” Let’s take another scene. Hear Elijah’s faith? There was a drought. In verse 41 he said this to Ahab, “…Go up…for there is the sound of the abundance of rain.”
Elijah went up to the top of Carmel. He prayed. Then he told his servant to go up and look toward the sea. SEVEN times he told him to go. Verse 44 says, “…There is a cloud…rising out of the sea! So he said, Go up, say to Ahab, Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you.”
The sound of faith in our prayers is agreement with what God has said. It is preserving to wait until He acts. Our mind is still, bringing every doubt captive through persevering truth.
Galatians 3:5 Amplified says, “…adhering to and trusting in and relying on the message that you heard.” What does God say in His word regarding your situation? Agree with His promise and stand. When you have done all to stand, keep on standing until He gives clear direction. He delights to hear our faith!
