I think a lot of our frustration in wanting to hear from God comes from the fact that we can be a little demanding. We want to hear from Him on our terms, in our timeframe, and on our turf.
I find it ironic that when I get frustrated enough, sometimes I will stop what I am doing. I’ll just sit, look out the window, look up, get on my knees, or close my eyes. I’ll stop. I’ll truly listen and I’ll be still. Usually calm will fill my heart, peace will saturate my soul, and suddenly everything that once was foggy will become clear. Amazing how that happens isn’t it? I focus on the Lord instead of my “issue” and priorities are quickly established. Usually those priorities (for me) entail letting go of my preconceived standards and expectations. And somehow – it works.
God is right there. All the time. Maybe we can’t hear Him because our own voice is a little too loud. Maybe we can’t hear Him because we’re too busy with distractions. Whatever the reason – He is there. He is just waiting for you to drop everything for but a minute…. And focus your entire being on Him – with Him – for Him.
You may not hear Him right away, but I guarantee you, you will feel Him.
