It’s important to be awake spiritually, ready and willing to hear from the Lord. Here’s a word from Dawson.
The apostle Paul was talking to a group of people who had drifted away. He said, “I’d like to talk to you about heavier things, but you have become dull of hearing.” (Hebrews 5:11) I think when someone loses their hearing, it’s probably not (for the most part) immediate. Slowly, slowly their hearing goes away. One day they go, “What? I can’t hear like I used to. What’s the problem here?” Dull of hearing.
Maybe that’s where you are at spiritually. The apostle Paul would say, I have a lot to share with you, but you can’t handle it because you have become dull of hearing. Now is the time to wake up. God’s going to take the wax right out of your spiritual ears so you can hear and say, I have to get back to where I was when I could hear things from God, when I was really alive.
