“All you lovers of God who want to please him. Come and listen and I’ll tell you what he did for me. I cried allowed to him with all my heart and he answered me” Passion translation psalm 66:16-17
Again I love David’s heart. He goes on in the psalm and talks about he will forever praise God. Answered prayer brought praise from David’s heart. But what I like is David’s heart of expectancy and anticipation that God will answer His prayers. We may pray a lot but do we expect God to answer us. How high is our level of expectancy? When’s the last time we have seen specific prayers answered that has resulted in your heart exploding with praise to Him. Is that our testimony? In John 16:24 Jesus tells his disciples to ‘ask and you will receive and your joy will be complete. He delights to answer prayer because it releases joy. There is nothing more discouraging if you pray and pray and you can never point to any answered prayers. Something is wrong with that picture. That wasn’t David’s testimony. His testimony was the opposite and he wanted everyone to know about it. It brings glory to God.
