But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. (Matthew 6:6)
Preston Morrison shared about the intimacy that God has with us when we pray. When we enter into a time of prayer, it is like having the “private cell phone number of the creator of the universe” (13:40). When we enter into this intimate conversation with God it should be like coming in and shutting the door waiting to hear him speak.
Preston even addressed the concerns about when we don’t know if we’re hearing God’s voice or not. John 10:27 says that Jesus said that his sheep know his voice. That we will know when he calls us, that we will recognize his voice in our life and we will be able to come into a closer relationship with him if we just listen.
We were given one mouth and two ears for a reason. We need to take time to listen more than we find the need to talk.
