I once heard a teacher say that when we are new believers, our Heavenly Father is always reaching into our world and speaking to us in various ways. Then, as we mature, He gets quiet – not because He has less to say to us or is less pleased with us. It is because He wants us to seek Him, and to learn to reach into His world. It is so awesome that our loving Father WANTS us in His world! And when we seek the Lord with all our heart, He will be found by us!
