Mark 4:12 so that although they look they may look but not see, and although they hear they may hear but not understand, so they may not repent and be forgiven.” 

I was tired of repeating twice everything I was saying to someone.  I ended the conversation saying I didn’t want to repeat everything twice so I left.  I no sooner got up when I heard God say, “I often must repeat things to you.  Should you do any less for others?”  There are many reasons we don’t hear.  Sometimes our minds are so occupied with something else we are not aware of someone (or God) speaking to us.  Sometimes we just choose not to really hear what is being said.  Sometimes our hearing is blocked by an ear problem or, with God, an confessed sin problem.  There are many reasons why we don’t hear what is being said.  With God, we must stay up to date on our confessions and pray that the Holy Spirit will always make us sensitive to His voice.  Our question is do we want to hear Him at all times?  Sometimes we choose to ignore what God has to say because we desire to do our own thing.  Let us learn to be totally committed to hearing God say whatever He wants us to know and whenever He wants to tell us.
