Re:Verse passage – 1 John 5:14-15 (day three)

“If we know that he hears … we know that we have…”

When your voice surprises a loved one with joy, when an important person answers your call, when your favorite musician takes your request, you’ve been heard. There’s a deep assurance that you matter. Being heard is so important to the core of your being that the actual details of your petition become less of the central issue, because being heard in your deepest place of longing affirms that you are valuable. With God, hearing and providing are two dimensions of the same attribute – his love for you. The one who takes the time to hear you will take the time to care for you in a way that will fill you with comfort, hope, and an unsurpassed experience of well-being. The one who made you will hear you.
