Well said Crystal,

Fasting, for those who are able, even 1 meal/day, has been such a blessing in my life in times of crisis, decision and direction.

As I was reflecting again upon your words Crystal, I was thinking how God helped direct me in the past with major decisions. Sometimes it seemed like heaven’s ceilings were stone and I could not hear from God at all.

Often those times were when I was out of fellowship(sin in my life) with my wife, or others. Peter warns Christians that God will not hear(respond) to our prayers if we have offended our wives:

“Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered”(1Pet 3:7)

Further, do we have “just balances” in our lives? God hates unjust balances(Pr 11:1, 20:23). In other words, have you been fair with God and others. Have you held back from God in your giving?(Tithe). Have you been fair in paying your taxes to Caesar?(Government taxes). Have you been just in your dealings at work and with others?

Confession of sin to God and making things right with others , and thereby God, is so important if we are to hear from God as we seek His direction.

It is often a futile exercise to seek God in prayer(vertically), when our relations with others(horizontally) offend the One from whom we are seeking direction.
