Read: 1 John 5:13-15
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” This quote, as simple and silly as it may be, is really insightful to think about. Imagine someone with headphones on, dancing furiously, but you cannot hear the music they are dancing to. They would look absolutely nuts! So it is with the people of God.
1 John 5:13-15 shows us that much of the things we ask for, live for, and hope for are probably going to look insane to those that cannot “hear the music” of the kingdom. Today, God actually hears our prayers. That alone is incredible, but it does not stop there. Not only does God hear us, but according to the text, He grants our requests in accordance with His will. Today, we should remind ourselves that as we are in tune with God’s will, we can ask and know that God hears us. He hears us and He responds to our requests to Him. What do you need to ask the Lord for today? When we pray, even if it may seem insane to others, it can be perfectly in tune to the frequency of Heaven.
