Having a God that listens to my prayers is wonderful. Why should He love me so much? I don’t know why I just know that He promises to hear us (1Jn 5:14). But did you know we can live in such a way that God will stop listening to us?
The writer of Proverbs warns us clearly…
“Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer; They will seek me diligently but will not find me. 29 Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the LORD, 30 would have none of my counsel and despised all my reproof, 31 therefore they shall eat the fruit of their way, and have their fill of their own devices. (Proverbs 1:28–31).
A tragedy that can well be avoided if we will seek God “If we look for God wholeheartedly, you will find me” (Jer 29:13). Jesus promised if we ask, seek and knock we will find, the door will open, and God will hear (Mt 7:7).
What an amazing God we have. He wants to fellowship us (1Jn 1:7-9). He wants us to draw near Him so He can draw near to us (Ja 4:8). I plan on seeking the Lord while He may be found and calling on Him while He is near (Is 55:6).
