If you’ve ever traveled to a tourist destination, it can be overwhelming when you arrive. In one place where we’ve traveled, there’s a hallway leading out of the airport with vendors on both sides trying to get your attention. We put our heads down and ignore them the best we can. It’s one thing to ignore someone trying to get your attention, and another when you’re the one being ignored. It can feel worse when you think it’s God who is ignoring you as you desperately try to get His attention. I want you to know that He’s not ignoring you. He hears you, He knows your situation and will do what’s best long term. No matter what, don’t stop knocking. Don’t stop seeking. Don’t stop asking.
Here are some Bible verses that show God isn’t ignoring you.
