Mark 2:6 But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, 2:7 Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only? 2:8 And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts?
8. Jesus Christ hears your meditation.
Some people wonder how long it takes for God to hear them. The answer; faster than lightning. We are told in Dan. 10:12 that God answered Daniel as soon as he purposed to start. God heard Daniel’s heart.
And it doesn’t take witchcraft or magic to hear people’s meditation, all you need is the Spirit of God. John the Baptist did it (Luke 3:15-17), Peter the Apostle did it (Acts 5:1-11), and you can do it too.
But the most important one who does it is Jesus.
When four friends brought their paralysed one through the roof to Jesus and He forgave him, the scribes reasoned in their hearts but Jesus caught that. (Mark 2:1-12)
When the disciples forgot bread and Jesus told them to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, He caught their reasoning. (Matt 16:5-12)
When the disciples reasoned among themselves as to who was the greatest, Jesus perceived their meditation. (Luke 9:46-48)
When Jesus taught how hard it was for rich men to enter the Kingdom, He understood his disciples’ meditations. (Mark 10:23-27)
After resurrecting, when Jesus appeared to His disciples, He perceived the thoughts of their hearts. (Luke 24:36-43)
There are many instances where Jesus heard the meditations of people’s hearts as He walked this earth; now that He’s in Heaven the case is not any different. In the natural realm you may say things out loud or whisper them to your heart, but in the spirit realm they might as well all be the same volume – your words are audible.
You may be a soft spoken human being, your prayer may not be as loud and aggressive as your neighbours’. Be encouraged – Jesus hears hearts. Meditate.
You may have a desire in your heart that is difficult to relay in words. Be encouraged – Jesus hears hearts – Meditate.
You may be fearful in saying some words out loud. Be encouraged, Jesus hears hearts – Meditate.
You may have a groan that you have no idea how to express. Be encouraged – Jesus hears hearts – Meditate.
You may want to sort something out just between you and God.
Jesus hears your heart!
