Is there a blockage in communication?

Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear. (Isaiah 59:1-2 NIV)

How does sin affect our relationship with God?  Because of their sin, the Israelites were no longer receiving protection from God.  They had withdrawn from him.  They began to see him like the gods of wood and stone that had little power.  It wasn’t God that didn’t have power.  He was alive and well.  He was a powerful God.  It was their sins that had caused a blockage between Him and them.  Have you ever felt that your prayers didn’t go beyond the ceiling?  Maybe even get so you don’t even want to pray?  I think we have all been there at some time or other, I know I have.  God hears but He can’t answer when there is a blockage in the communication line.  Sin blocks communication.  How do you remove the blockage?  Pray for forgiveness.  He will always forgive.  Pray for strength to resist sin.  He will supply the power.

Father God, we want to have open communication with you.  We want to hear and follow you.  Please forgive us of our sins.  Please show us the way and give us the strength to resist temptation and follow you.  Thank you, in the most precious name of Jesus we pray.  Amen.
