30 Days of Praise and Thanksgiving: Day 26

Day: He Listens

He delights in giving us even the smallest desires of our hearts, He even called in the manatees for me (yes manatees)! I had never seen manatees other than tv and videos or pictures. On a recent visit to Florida my Aunt shared that she sometime sees them in the water in front of her condo. My eyes were immediately drawn to the beautiful waters upon arriving. I was praying, “Poppa I want to see a manatee.” I had no idea my aunt was praying for me to see them as well. She said look Chelle and pointed, I could see it’s head. Before I new it, there were several stirring in the waters as the Lord told me He was calling them in for me to see. It was amazing and my heart just smiled! Something so simple and so pure, yet something the Lord knew I wanted to see so much! “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” ~ Psalm 37:4 Someone may think that’s just silly, the Lord has better things to do than something like that. But I challenge you to think larger, He is our Father and He loves to see us happy. I had been through so much and all my heart wanted in that moment in time was to see a manatee. That may sound silly to you, but He knew what it meant to me and He spoke to me through that situation in a way only He and I could understand. That is a Father’s love.

I am so thankful He listens. He hears even when I don’t speak. He understands the silence when the words just won’t come out. The Holy Ghost doesn’t miss a thing and makes intercession on our behalf. “26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what [is] the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to [the will of] God.” ~ Romans 8:26-27 He listens on a level most can’t even comprehend, hearing my heart, my mind, and what comes out of my mouth. Spoken and unspoken, nothing is missed by my Poppa. Manatees. He answered my prayer for manatees y’all! He is ALWAYS listening. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

💚 Thank You Father God for listening like no one else can. 💚

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. ~ Hebrews 4:16
