God is always speaking to us, but the further we move away, the less we can hear His voice.
Read: Job 33:13-14
I like to listen to a local talk show on my drive home from work. The station is close to my job so when I first tune in the signal is extremely clear. The further I drive from my job, the less I can hear and understand the show. Finally, I get to a point when I've driven so far away I’m forced to turn the radio off.
If I told you the radio show ended because I can no longer hear it, you’d think I was crazy. The show is still on the air. I’m simply too far away to tune in. The same is true with God. He is always speaking to us, but the further we move away the less we can hear His voice. And if we move too far away, we may stop hearing from Him altogether.
The presence of sin separates us from God and causes His signal to go fuzzy. Isaiah 59:2 says, “But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.”
So how do we remain close to God and put ourselves in a position to hear His voice? We spend time with Him in prayer. We read His Word and submit all areas of lives to Him. We attend church and allow believers to share what they've heard from Him.
God is always speaking. We just need to be tuned in to hear His voice.
