His hidden face

RE Verse reading–Micah 1:1-6, 2:1-3, 3:1-8 (day two)  “Then they will cry out to the Lord, but He will not answer them.  At that time He will hide His face from them because of the evil they have done”  (3:4)  It is a situation that the Bible describes with great fear.  God hides His face from us and our prayers.  At some terrible moment, He stops hearing us.  Until we are ready to deal with our sin, the conversation is over.  Isaiah saw the same moment.  “But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear”  (Isaiah 59:2)  The lesson?  None of us should take the privilege of prayer for granted.  “Seek for the Lord while He may be found, call on Him while He is near.  Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts. . .and (the Lord) will abundantly pardon”  (Isaiah 55:6-7)
