“Alexa, turn the lights off in the living room.”

“Alexa, set the thermostat to 72 degrees.”

Have you seen devices that allow you to speak and they obey? Wouldn’t it be nice if they could solve all your problems?


“Alexa, heal me of cancer; mend my marriage; give me a raise; fix my broken relationship with my children.”

While these devices are fun and serve a purpose, they fall short of performing miracles. They only work because someone programmed a computer to respond when that grouping of consonants and vowels were put together and spoken out loud.

I’m so grateful to say there is One who hears us when we call, and He is still in the miracle-working business. He answers because He knows us and He calls us by name. When we say the name Jesus, He doesn’t have to search the web to answer us or check His database for information. He doesn’t have the answer for us – He IS the answer for us.


He still mends hurting hearts and broken relationships. He saves and sets free. Today, you can call His name and know with certainty He hears and answers.


With Love,



Before they call, I will answer; while they are still speaking, I will hear.

Isaiah 65:24
