“It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear.” Isaiah 65:24
God anticipates the call or the cry of His children. He readily and hastily responds to the sincere heart with the very best remedy to their deepest needs. They are the ones who are full of questions in need of answers. Most of their questions are too difficult to effectively communicate in words; but God is not looking for the articulate, He seeks out the sincere. He looks into the far distant future while a prayer is in the formative stage and releases from heaven the answer that reaches him on schedule. He does not wait for him to intellectually grasp the concepts allowing him to plow his own way out of the ditch of confusion. No! He listens to his thoughts that are connected to his heart. What He hears is what they intend, rather than merely say. While they were yet speaking, the Lord stops them in the middle of their sentences and calms their anxieties and fears, by letting them know that He understands. His listening ear is the result of His understanding heart. The Lord will hear the call those whose hearts are perfect towards Him.
