In today's society there so many distractions in our life that hinder us from hearing God. However, if we tune-in to His voice we are able to hear His voice even in the midst of those distractions. His sheep hear His voice.
The most crucial issue any of us face in hearing God is the motive of our own hearts. If the primary pursuit of our hearts is not right we will have trouble hearing the voice of God. We will have trouble getting clear direction for our lives.
