If you ask/pray/speak to God and He does not answer you, your personal relationship with Him is wrong. First get your personal relationship with Him right.
Saul inquired of the Lord and the Lord did not answer.
1 Sam 28:6-7: And when Saul enquired of the LORD, the LORD answered him not, neither by dreams nor by Urim, nor by prophets. Then Saul said unto his servants, ‘Seek me a woman that has a familiar spirit that I may go to her, and enquire of her’. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that has a familiar spirit at Endor
Why did God not answer Saul?
Because earlier, God had departed from Saul; the personal relationship between God and Saul was not right.
1 Sam 16:14: But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul
If God does not answer you, your personal relationship with Him is not right
Because God could not answer Saul, Saul went to a woman with spirit of divination instead of repenting and getting His personal relationship right with God.
When God does not answer many people claiming to be Christians, they run to Satan servants with spirit of divination; hypocrites!
Like Saul, the Spirit of the Lord (Holy Spirit) has departed from many calling themselves Christians.
When a person comes to Jesus Christ, Jesus baptizes the person with the Holy Spirit; the Holy Spirit dwells in the person.
Jesus Christ does not baptize with water but only with the Holy Spirit as said by John the Baptist,
I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he who comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and with fire (Mt 3:11)
When the Holy Spirit is dwelling in a person, the person has a clear direct communication with God but if the Holy Spirit is not dwelling in a person, there is no communication between God and an individual.
How do you know if the Spirit of God has departed from you?
If you pray and ask God for anything and receive no answer, the Holy Spirit has departed. Your personal relationship with God is not right.
When Jesus says,
John 16:23: Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever you shall ask the Father in my name, He will give you.
Indeed when you ask you will receive, when you speak, God will respond. God is a faithful God.
For Him to answer and give whatever you ask Him, you must abide in Him.
John 15:7: If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done unto you.
God does not reward rebellion.
You are not receiving whatever you ask, God is not answering you because the Spirit of the Lord has departed from you; your personal relationship with Him is not right.
Instead of running to God servants to mediate between you and God, instead of running to Satan servants with spirit of divination like Saul, instead of running from church to church, etc, get your relationship right with God.
How to get your personal relationship right with God
For God to be able to speak to you, answer you and give you whatever you ask, personal relationship between you and Him must be right.
To those the Holy Spirit has departed and God is not answering and giving you whatever you ask, you get your personal relationship right with God by;
1. Separating yourself from the world
You must totally separate yourself from the world. Holy Spirit and the world do not mix; the Holy Spirit cannot be in you when the world is in you. He will surely depart.
1 John 2:15: Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
You cannot love God and the world. If you love the world, God will depart from you.
The conscience of many people has been corrupted to a point they cannot know what is wrong and right in the eyes of God; they cannot see that the world is in them.
Many people calling themselves Christians have mixed themselves with the world and the Holy Spirit has departed.
For the Holy Spirit to dwell in you, for God to answer you and give you whatever you ask, you must be totally separated from the world. Stop loving the world and doing things world people do.
Come forward sincerely to God and repent your sins. Keep repenting. See how to repent
3. Studying the Bible
Let the Word of God not depart from you. It is the key to getting close to God. Meditate it day and night.
Many people today have not time to study the Bible but have time for newspapers, magazines, social media, etc. And these are the people making a lot of empty noise about Jesus Christ.
Be a prayerful person
Running from one church to another, tithing and sacrificing, going to people with spirit of divination, etc, will not help you.
Close the door, go in secret and seek the Lord and you will indeed find him.
Since I learned the most important key to having a clear direct communication with the Lord, God answers me every question I ask Him. He even reads my thoughts and answers before I ask.
He is faithful. He is the only true living God.
God answers in two main ways;
- Through dreams and visions
- By sending His servant to you
And we clearly see these two ways in this verse
1 Sam 28:6: And when Saul enquired of the LORD, the LORD answered him not, neither by dreams nor by Urim, nor by prophets
When you ask God anything, tell Him to send His servant if you cannot clearly hear His voice. Many people have spoke to God and in dreams God has send me to them.
Do not come tell me to speak to God on your behalf or to tell you what God wants with you, instead speak to my Lord Jesus Christ in prayer and tell Him to send His servant to you. He will surely send me in a dream/vision to you with His message.
God answers in His own time. You do not dictate to God when to answer. But if no matter how much time passes and you see or hear no answer, get your personal relationship with Him right.
Jesus is coming
