Who calls God’s attention?
Those who listen to Him!
We listen to God when we have the sensibility to hear His teachings.
And how do I know that in fact, I’m listening to Him? Those who listen to God obey Him. Those who don’t listen aren’t concerned with His teachings.
Abraham was in the midst of idolatrous people, but heard God’s voice and immediately obeyed:
“And he said, “Brethren and fathers, listen: The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Haran, and said to him, ‘Get out of your country and from your relatives, and come to a land that I will show you.” (Acts 7: 2.3)
On the other hand, Jacob took several years to finally submit to the voice of God and have his name changed.
Just like in those times God appears today to give us instructions as to what He wants, but we can say without making a mistake that only the minority of people listen and obey Him.
Obedience automatically makes the separation from those who listen and those who don’t.
When we listen we are being humble and submitting to Him. But those who resists and aren’t flexible can’t grow spiritually.
When we listen to God we stop what we are doing to submit to His voice. And also when someone says something about you pay close attention to your behavior to see if it’s true or not. If you have difficulty seeing the truth about yourself be humble and seek God, ask Him to reveal it to you.
If I resist the person who teaches me then, I create a barrier between them and me. And the same way I act with God people will act with me.
Those who have fixed ideas or “complain” can’t hear the Voice of God because He doesn’t scream or imposed His will, but He whispers it.
Evaluate your life and see if you’re really being attentive to the voice of God through your obedience.

I have wasted time in the kingdom of God listening to the other voice that was taking me nowhere. It has taken the campaign of Israel to fully pay attention to the voice of TRUTH and OBEY, now and again the other silly voice tries to speak but I remind him he is defeated.
