Recently a dear friend asked if I would pray for God to show her why she felt there was a wall up between her and His spirit. I have also been feeling a wall, and asking the Lord if I had done something wrong, or what I could do to fix it. As I was praying about our situations, He spoke this to me:
Everything that can be persuaded to follow the world in this time will.
I saw in the spirit that the test coming is far greater than anything we've experienced before, and much greater than what we're experiencing right now. We will be tested at levels we never dreamed of. He is being more silent right now as each person is offered choices - the world and all its sinful pleasures, or Him. The Teacher is always silent during the test. We are being tested.
As I continued praying, I began telling the Lord how much I missed feeling His presence, and I begged Him to allow me to feel it again or tell me if I had done something wrong. He spoke to me again.
You aren't praising Me enough. When you praise Me, you will feel My presence again.
I realized then that I had in my usual busy-ness, gotten off track in this area.
We are in the time of the separating of the sheep from the goats. Each day, we must choose who we will serve. Those who choose to serve the world or darkness will be given over to the sins they prefer over Him. Those who choose Him will be given more of Him.
