And when they cry out, God does not answer
because of their pride.
But it is wrong to say God doesn’t listen,
to say the Almighty isn’t concerned. – Job 3712-13
Sometimes I have to ignore my kids. There are different reasons for this. Sometimes they need to know that their actions are unacceptable. Sometimes I need them to figure out a solution to a problem on their own. Sometimes they need to find independence. Sometimes it is because they are full of pride.
They think I don’t hear them, but I do. I usually hear everything that they are doing. I am concerned. My response is carefully chosen so that I can help them mature. God does the same thing.
Is pride keeping God from answering you?
