Many gifts are dormant because people fail to interprets how God is communicating the instruction. Answers have been missed because God can’t come and speak to us directly but He uses other measures to bring the message. Pray that God give you the wisdom to understand how He speaks to you.
Job 33:14-16 For God may speak in one way, or in another, Yet man does not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, When deep sleep falls upon men, While slumbering on their beds, Then He opens the ears of men, And seals their instruction.
If you wake up with a thought, do you attribute it to God? If a drunk person pass and make a comment will you hear if it’s God speaking or you’ll only see a drunk person.
