God said to Israel: “Pay heed to me and listen, and your souls will live!” It is tremendously important to be able to turn to God with one’s whole being and to believe that he will speak. Everything depends on our asking him to speak to us. If we hear nothing from God for a long time, it may be because there is something between us and heaven – perhaps we lack love to our neighbor, or we are at odds with our spouse. If this is the case, our waiting is in vain.
