|Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear. ĖIsaiah 59:1-2
I have read these verses many times, but I really didnít understand what it meant until now. I realized that when I wasnít living the life I ought to live as a Christian, I prayed, but there was nothing there. Every time I got down on my knees to pray, there was a void there that just didnít feel right. I felt like I had to force myself to pray. However, now that I have dedicated my life to God, I can almost immediately feel the Spirit as I get down on my knees to pray. That dark cloud has been removed.
When you sin, you create a sort of barrier between yourself and God. When you pray and feel like God has turned a deaf ear to your cries, you need to look back at what you have done to see if there is anything that that could be considered a sinful in your life. God is saying that his arm is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear, but your sins have separated you from him. So brethren you need to make sure that before you come to God with your requests, the first thing to do is repent. Before you ask for blessings, you ought to ask for forgiveness; before you ask for anything, you need to confess our sins and seek his forgiveness.
So my brothers and sisters, when you pray to God, remember to remove that cloud that separates you from God because of sin, and then your prayers can freely flow upward.
Stay blessed and spread the word.
