Hearing Voices

Can you imagine what it would be like to hear a million people trying to speak to you all at the same time? I've wondered before, how does God hear in the midst of all the noise? ( I can't even keep up with all of the noise of Facebook.)

Gen 21:15 When the water in the skin was gone, she put the child under one of the bushes. 16 Then she went and sat down opposite him a good way off, about the distance of a bowshot, for she said, “Let me not look on the death of the child.” And as she sat opposite him, she lifted up her voice and wept. 17 And God heard the voice of the boy, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What troubles you, Hagar? Fear not, for God has heard the voice of the boy where he is.

God hears the cry of this weakened child who is about to die and raises him up.

Lord, I'm so glad that you hear voices.
