God doesn't hear sinners when they pray to him, a lot of Christians wonder why their prayers are not answered and they feel they pray to the wind. This is because God does not hear the prayers of sinners. It is written in John 9:31 We know that God does not hear the prayers of sinners, but he listens to those who do his will…..You see when we are not prepared to turn away from our sins, and when we are not prepared to do the will of God which is to obey and follow Jesus, then God will not listen to your prayers and you might as well not pray because God does not listen.
But the sinner who decides to do the will of God, that is the person who realises that Jesus calls sinners to repentance, and Jesus calls them to deny themselves and follow him, it is these sinners who get on their knees and get up justified before God and he hears their prayers and he faithfully washes away their sins and transforms them and gives them a new way. Do you feel God does not hear your prayers? Well it would be because you are in sin and God does not give ear to sinners. I once was at a revival meeting. There were many Christians there. Many Christians sinners were there.
A lot of people were standing around listening to this testimony of this man who had been delivered and was now walking with Jesus. And out of all those people there was only one old drunk who decided to get on his knees and cry out to God, crying because he knew he was a sinner. And this guy ended up getting up justified before God. Everyone else was standing around tight lipped because many people are not willing to turn from their sins and repent yet. They think, well I am already saved, why do I need to repent? Dear friends you are not already saved.
There is only one way, that is the way of the cross, the way of following Jesus, the way of denying yourself. If you cannot do that, and if you don't want to do that, and if you don't want to come out of the darkness and come into the light and expose all your evil deeds, then I am afraid that God will not hear your prayers. I know of people who are not willing to admit things are sin. They are not willing to admit that they are in the darkness. But I want to warn you today; if you are not willing to admit that you need to come into the light, then there is no hope for you and God wont even hear your prayers.
But If you willing to admit that you need to leave the darkness and your dark deeds and you don't try and make excuses for your dark deeds, trying to say they are light, then you would cry out to God and he will hear you, and he will deliver you, and he will change you. Are you ready to turn to the Lord in full repentance? May the Lord bless you….
