Isaiah 59:1-2 59
Behold, the LORD'S hand is not so short That it cannot save; Nor is His ear so dull That it cannot hear. 2But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, And your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear.
Many times people wonder why their prayers are not heard. The Bible is clear that if we practice sin it separates us from God. Now everyone sins and when we do we can ask God for forgiveness and He will forgive. This passage is talking about continuous, rebellious conscious sin. Knowing our actions or attitudes are wrong and continuing in them anyway. People have a few sins they think of but as the sign posts in the picture indicate there are all sorts of sins. We must take the time to examine our life and ask God to reveal any sin that may be hindering our relationship with Him.
