One day I’m sitting in the lobby at the shop to get my car inspected. While I’m talking on my cellphone, I suddenly notice that there’s no longer response to my comments on the other end of the call.
Then I say, “Hello. Hello.”
When I look at my phone, I notice that when the mechanic started my car to drive it into the garage, my call switched to the Bluetooth in my car.
So while I’m talking away, the person on the other end of the call (and the mechanic) could hear me, but I couldn’t hear them.
In a similar way, even if you feel like you can’t hear God, remember that when you call on God, God can hear you.
