What temple now?
Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.
-- 2 Chronicles 7:15
This was God saying his eyes and ears were attentive to the prayers offered in the temple of the Lord. Now his eyes and ears are attentive to prayers offered in his new temple. That temple is in our heart, each child of God is the temple of the Lord. We need to pray because we know God is listening and attentive. We sometimes pray and God doesn’t seem to answer, but you know it is not because he doesn’t hear, it is because he is saying you need to wait, or the answer is no. You have to trust him that he knows best.
