To me, hearing God’s voice is like trying to fine tune a frequency on the radio. It sounds all garbled and noisy at first but as you delicately turn the knob ever so slowly you begin to hear the music or announcer clearer and clearer. The more time I spend reading/meditating on God’s word, praising His awesomeness, spending time with others talking about Christ, the clearer His voice becomes, the easier it is to feel His presence, the more I want to become more like Him.
Through the years I have found myself going in and out of frequency due to laziness, work, changing locations of where I live, etc. Basically allowing “life” to get away from me. But Jesus is always there, never changing, the solid rock. I am the one that tends to dance around it and not remain still.
When I find myself not being able to hear His voice or feel His presence I have to take inventory of where I am and what I am doing and basically get back on tract and ask for forgiveness. Praise you Lord, that you are so merciful, gracious, so forgiving and compassionate, though I do not deserve it! You are always there, never changing.
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. (Ephesians 2:4-5)
This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. 25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— 26 he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus. (Romans 3:22-25)
