He inclined His ear unto me

phonetalk1When Yahuwah [the Hebrew name for the LORD] hears our voice in prayer, He has a promise for us:

…if we ask any thing according to His will, He hears us:
And if we know that He hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him. (1John 5:14-15)

If we are praying, in the Name of His Son, Yahushua Messiah [the Hebrew name for Jesus Christ], . . .

and, if we are praying according to His will, then He will hear us!!

And, He tells us: “. . .  whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.”

That promise is almost overwhelming! What an immense love of God this promise reveals!

But wait!  Praying ‘according to His will’ — how can we know our prayers are according to His will?

As we saw in That It May Be Well With You, because our heavenly Father loves us, He wants things to be well with us! Therefore, if our genuine request is for His help, or for healing (in body or soul), then we can be sure we ARE praying according to His will.

Yahuwah loves us so much!! His love and compassion makes me say with King David: 

“I love Yahuwah [the LORD]!!
Because He has heard my voice!
Because He has inclined His ear unto me!
Therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live!” (Psalms 116:1-2)

All of us want our prayers to be answered!

Praying “according to His will” is essential to having our prayers answered.

However, there is something equally necessary for our prayers to be answered! What is it? 

Yahuwah must hear our prayers! Hearing our prayers is what makes Him incline His ear unto us.’

Our Voice Makes the Difference

It is our voice that makes the difference. Talking to God with our voice is one of the secrets to seeing answers to our prayers.

Our voice is as unique as our fingerprints, our eyes, and our hair. A person’s voice is uniquely identified. It is completely distinctive!

No one has to prove to us that the sound of our mother’s voice is like no other. Each of us recognizes certain voices and can identify them immediately — our parent’s voices, our sibling’s voices, our spouse’s and closest friends’ voices.

If we get a phone call from someone dear and special to us — someone we have not talked with in months, we do not have to ask “Who is this?” We recognize their voice immediately because it is so uniquely who they are.

The Human Voice

The human voice — it is a unique and awesome attribute of each individual.

The ability to voice, to articulate and communicate the thoughts within our mind and heart is an exclusive characteristic of human beings. No other creature is able to communicate with their voice their thoughts and intents of their mind and will. It is one of the unique qualities that sets human beings apart as being created in the image of our Creator! No other creature has this distinctive honor.

Consider King David, who was “a man after God’s heart” (Acts 13:22). What made King David so special to God?

King David knew his heavenly Father from a young age. While young and tender, David learned one small, yet mighty secret — the secret of using his voice in his relationship with Father God:

I cried unto Yahuwah [the LORD] with my voice; with my voice unto Yahuwah did I make my supplication.”  (Psalms 142:1)

In my distress I called upon Yahuwah, and cried unto my God: He heard my voice… my cry came before Him, even into His ears.  (Psalms 18:6)

Yahuwah is nigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in truth.” (Psalms 145:18.)

O Yahuwah my Elohim [O LORD my God], I cried unto You, and You have healed me.  (Psalms 30:2)

As the above verses show us, using our voice is essential in our relationship with the heavenly Father. Over and over, the Psalms reveal that King David was a man who used his voice to talk to Yahuwah — crying out in prayer to Him.

David’s example teaches us that we cannot just think our prayers; we must voice our prayers!

How do we have a relationship with Yahuwah, the Creator?

If we truly want a relationship with Yahuwah, it begins with our voice voicing our thoughts, our hopes, our desires, our hurts in prayer to Him, talking to Him, crying out to Him, calling Him by Name.

Using our voice in prayer is a powerful, life-changing secret to entering into the presence of Yahuwah. When we voice our honest, sincere thoughts to Father — then He knows we are serious and that we are calling upon Him in truth.

Using our voice to talk to our heavenly Father is the way we demonstrate our faith in Him, our trust in Him, and our humility. He understands completely our problems, our struggles. He wants to help us!  But we must come to Him by speaking to Him with our voice! We must sincerely seek Him, waiting patiently upon Him, asking Him to reveal His ways to us.

Faith and Humility

It takes simple, child-like faith and humility, to talk to Yahuwah. 

First, faith is acknowledging God’s very existence: “He that cometh to God must believe that He is….” (Hebrews 11:6). Our prayer [talking to Father] is faith in action, and it is fundamental to “walking by faith, not by sight” (2Corinthians 5:7).

Second, in our walk with Father, we need to be “of a contrite (sorrowful for our sins) and humble spirit” (Isaiah 57:15). Yahuwah gives His grace to the humble!

Yahuwah delights in these two things — Faith and Humility.

Without faith it is impossible to please Him [Yahuwah Elohim] … (Hebrews 11:6a)

Surely He scorneth the scorners: but He giveth grace unto the lowly. (Prov 3:34)

I cried unto Yahuwah with my voice, and He heard me out of His holy hill. Selah.  (Psalms 3:4)

Blessed be Yahuwah, because He hath heard the voice of my supplications.  (Psalms 28:6)

The righteous cry, and Yahuwah heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.  (Psalms 34:17)

The above Scriptures show us that Yahuwah listens and hears the cries, the prayers, the voices of His children! Father wants to hear our faith-filled, humble prayers! Though Yahuwah knows our thoughts (Psalms 139), thinking our prayers robs Father of listening and hearing something very special to Him — our voice! 

Thinking our prayers is not a demonstration of our faith!

Faith is what Father desires from His children.

It takes faith to talk out loud to Him, and faith is what pleases Him, as we saw in Hebrews 11:6 —

Without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.

Entrance Into the Kingdom of Heaven

The entrance into Yahuwah’s heavenly Kingdom became a reality for you when you voiced your very first prayer — when you first spoke those few words telling Father you needed Him, you needed the Saviour.

You said with your voice that you accepted the sacrifice of His Son, Yahushua Messiah, as your Savior. You were praying in sincerity, talking to Him, according to His will, praying in the name of Yahushua [Jesus], and He heard you, and He answered you! That was when you were Born-Again. That is so completely awesome and profound!!! 

You humbled yourself, you expressed your faith and trust in Him, when you simply spoke with your voice to God! Just the simple voice of your prayer moved the Creator of the universe with compassion to come to your rescue and to your side.

When Yahuwah “inclines His ear” unto you, it means He is listening to your voice. He leans, or bows His head closer, to listen and hear carefully what you are saying.

Why does He do that?

Because He loves to hear your voice!

When you talk to God, you are humbly trusting in Him as your heavenly Father. And He has promised:

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask Him?  (Matthew 7:11)

Yahuwah Wants to Hear Your Voice!

Our heavenly Father wants to hear your voice! Look what He says to us:

O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely (beautiful). (Song of Songs 2:14)

Do you see what Yahuwah is saying to you?!

Your voice, so unique and precious, is sweet to Yahuwah!! He says “Let me hear your voice!”

So tell Him with your voice, what’s on your mind and what’s hidden deep in your heart. You will not surprise Him, you will delight Him! 

Thank You Father, that You love to hear my voice! Help me to always open up to You with sincerity, and share with You what is on my heart — with my voice. Help me to trust in Your promise, that when I draw near to You, then You will draw near to me (Psalms 69:16-18 and James 4:8). In Yahushua’s name, I pray. Amen.

Speaking out loud to Father God is essential!

That is how it can happen that He can hear me, and therefore, He can ‘incline His ear unto me!’

The Son of God:
Yahuwah Elohim [the Hebrew name for the LORD God], Who is the Living, Eternal God, Creator of all things, came to this earth, born through a virgin birth, to communicate His character, His nature, His power, His purpose, and His plans. Only Yahushua Messiah [Jesus Christ] could have accomplished this mission, because . . . He was not an ordinary man!!
