God is not Silent, Hear Him!
“Hear, you peoples, all of you; pay attention, O earth, and all that is in it” (Micah 1:2)
Hear intelligently. Listen with understanding. Discern what is being said.
God is speaking, He is not silent.

All of you
God’s word is not for a select few. It pertains to everybody.
“Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard. Their measuring line goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world” (Psalm 19:2-4).

Focus. Apply your mind. Engage your thoughts on this. God’s perfect word deserves more than just a glance.
