Do you ever go through stretches in your life where it seems the Lord doesn’t answer your prayers? There can be many reasons for it, but one of them is in the above verse – you’re regarding iniquity in your heart. The word regard means you’re considering it and you’re not letting it go. There are many sins in people’s lives they just can’t seem to shake. Then they wonder why their prayers aren’t answered.
King David went through a terrible time in his life when he committed the sin with Bathsheba that led to the murder of her husband, Uriah. The baby he had with Bathsheba died and it took the Lord speaking to David through the prophet Nathan to get him to acknowledge his sin.
Maybe the Lord is speaking to you today about a sin in your life you haven’t let go. Confess that sin to the Lord and be forgiven, like David did, and reopen up your lines of communication with God.
Hear me, Lord!
