Are you listening?
There are times when, because of our unwillingness to listen, God may just stop talking. I think he did it to King Saul.
Saul, the King of Israel, who had banished all mediums from the land, decided to consult with one. Saul himself had declared that all spiritists had to leave. So then, why, in 1 Samuel 28, did Saul visit a medium – a spiritist – to consult with the dead?
You know the answer, right? God had stopped talking to him.
1 Samuel 28:6 (NIV) 6He inquired of the LORD, but the LORD did not answer him by dreams or Urim or prophets.
And why would God stop talking to Saul? I think it was because Saul had stopped listening.
Indeed, there are times when, because of our unwillingness to listen, God may just stop talking.
This podcast addresses this reality, and shows us how to better listen.
