If you want to hear His voice . . . obey.
You must be willing to obey God’s instructions (as presented in His Word) in order to hear His voice. Many people suffer the silence of God because they refuse to respond to the prompting of His Spirit. Many times God tells us something that He wants us to do. Then He waits to see if we will obey Him. And if we do, He tells us something else. When we choose to obey His voice, we know He’s there and He walks with us through the confusing stuff life throws our way. But if we don’t obey Him, He remains silent.
Can you think of a time when your obedience (or lack of) affected your ability to hear the voice of God?
