What do you do when you keep running into a wall and feel that you can't hear God's voice or are missing His direction in your life? I go through a checklist to eliminate anything that may be causing my hearing impairment. The first thing I do is ask for forgiveness of my sins, just in case I did something in my sin nature that has caused my prayers to be ignored. Then I begin praising Him and offer Him my worship. If I still can't hear Him, it's probably because I'm trying too hard. His voice is very quiet and sometimes the voices inside my head need to be quietened and the loud speaker turned off. God is always there; separation comes from us, not from Him. Remember when you were a kid and you got wrapped up in your favorite television show and tuned out everything going on around you? The things going on in our life can cause us to tune Him out just like that. Focus on Him and the wall will come down.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you. Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, or it will not stay near you. Psalms 32:8-9
