David did in Psalm 40 and again in Psalm 86.
Psalm 40:1 “I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry.” KJ
Psalm 86:1 “Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy.” KJ
A father bending down to his child is something you can see nearly every day. What I had failed to see before was the enormity of David asking the God of the universe to bend down and listen to him. This wasn’t just a father bending down to listen, but God.
David’s ability to do that speaks of relationship, the relationship purchased for us by Christ that not only gives us that special father/child relationship with God, but bids us to “…come boldly unto the throne of grace…”
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” KJ
These verses of Scripture give quiet times with God a whole new meaning. We can boldly bring our joys and sorrows, hurts and needs, and even ask the Lord to bend over and listen to us.
How about it? Are you ready to go talk with your Father about your needs and desires?
