Proverbs 15:29 The Lord is far from the wicked but He hears the prayer of the righteous.
As believers we can experience both of these scenarios. Although if we are saved God is never so far from us that He won’t return with repentance, thank goodness. We can be wicked; we can continue in a sin that we know is wrong that will ultimately quench the Holy Spirit’s work in our lives. We won’t grow spiritually. We can also be righteous. We can work diligently to keep unrepentant sin out of our hearts and lives. We can grow in our knowledge of Him who holds us. He will listen to us when we pray to Him. Since we can be both of these things which is the best scenario? Which are we pursuing today?
