(Psa 4:3) But know that the LORD has set apart for Himself him who is godly; The LORD will hear when I call to Him.
One of the questions I received from a friend was that do you hear the Holy Spirit communicating to you and I gladly replied “Yes of Course”.

When you read the book of Psalm a great teacher once said “The book of Psalm speaks about a believer in Christ”.
As a believer, it is crucial to assure ourselves that Our Father hears us when we call to Him. It should not be something which surprises us that when we call on His name he answers us.

(Jas 1:5) If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
Is it revelation knowledge?
Eph 1:17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,
Our Lord is a Good Good Father and He always Hears us, something which emboldens us when we put our requests to Him.
