Lacking the ability to hear from God is a dangerous state to be in. Israel had rebelled against God so much that they lost the ability to hear from Him. The leaders came seeking a Word from God and God refused to speak to them!
Instead of giving them a new Word, God reminded them of all the things He had spoken to them in the past. How often do we want to receive a new Word from God when we have not acted on the Word He has already given to us.
If you find yourself in a season where you cannot hear from God or sense His presence, go back to the last instruction you received from Him and act on it. God wants to speak to His children and give us the direction that we need. But, He cannot speak to us if we do not put ourselves in a place to hear. Hearing God’s voice is precious to the Believer. Don’t ever jeopardize it.
