Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.
Several times over the years I have heard someone say, “Well, God and I really aren’t getting along right now.” If the arm of the Lord is plenty long enough, and His ears are tuned to our cries and prayers, then how can we not be getting along? God has not changed His commitment, His faithfulness or His goodness. It is our sin that separates us. The sin we commit and do not confess, has hidden His face. We jump into something we know is not right, we suffer, and then we cry out to God for help, but feel He is not there. Oh, He is there, but the deceitfulness of our sin has blinded us. Repentance is the way back from blindness to fellowship (I John 4:9)
