God does not only want us to hear Him. He wants us to both hear and understand. God is not some mysterious being that is far removed from our circumstances and situations. He is nearer than we think and is closely connected to what is happening in our lives. Since the Garden of Eden, God has desired a time of communion with each of us. He wants us to know Him as He knows us. We cannot just push the thought of speaking to God aside and ignore it simply because we do not have a clear understanding of how He communicates with us. We must learn His ways, we must seek His will, and we must tune our ears to His voice.
Thanks for listening!
