Why is it that God does not talk to us, even though we may spend hours talking to Him ?
This is indeed a good question…. and there are a number of reasons…
In the beginning before sin entered the world…. God regularly talked with Adam (Genesis 3:8-10)
Revelation 21:7 indicates that in the end such intimate fellowship will exist again.
In the present age …. open communication with GOD is only possible under special circumstances when God chooses…. and this does not depend on us…. it is entirely His choice.
Because of our sinful natures, our lives on this planet would be cut short by direct communication with God on a regular basis (Isaiah 6:1 – 8…. Isaiah was a very “godly” man, but when He saw God he realized his aweful condition…. the live coal taken from the altar purified him, but can you imagine the pain to him that a live coal would cause to human lips ?)…. we are expected to engage the enemy on this “earth plane” acting on FAITH….. God guides us through our thoughts and through the Bible, and the more we seek Him… the more sure we will be aware of His guidance in our lives (even without “direct” communication) 1 Corinthians 13:12 speaks to this “indirect” communication on planet earth.
Jesus lived a fully human life and GOD through JESUS was able to interact with mortals (both the “good” and the “bad”) during His earthly appearance.
But the Bible repeatedly shows that GOD in His eternal GLORY…. consumes man…. His awesome HOLINESS simply “burns up” the human body (because of it’s sin nature).
Prayer for Today:
Loving Heavenly Father, may we reverence your HOLINESS…. even as we thank and praise you for your love and care of us…. Amen.
