If I regard wickedness in my heart,
The Lord will not hear;
There are times we feel like Saul. Stuck between a rock and a hard place we cry out to God hoping for relief, but all we receive is silence. It is a heartbreaking reality that drove Saul to a witch. A witch is not usually our first option, but just as blindly, we blame God for being silent.
The deafening distance between you and God is not God’s design. God’s design is for the two of you to be inseparable, but the sin in your heart causes you to drift further and further away from God as if the sound of speech can no longer reach.
