Before believing in Christ, I have never could feel and heard God Believing in God and only one God is not a copy right of Christian faith, other faiths on earth believe in that too. There are lots of people that I’ve known believe there is a Almighty Creator and controller God, and He loves us and He dwells in hearts that believe in Him and He communicates directly with those hearts.
Actually before I knew Christ, I had the same idea and same faith. I prayed to God and when I felt God is so far away for my reach, I lighted an incense trying to help me make this communication with God. Still I felt difficult and never had I heard God’s voice talking to me.
Now I understand, we just cannot do it by our own, we need God’s help in order to connect with Him. Why? Because our sinful nature makes up the gap between us and God and there is no way we could have the capability to fill that gap by our own. The sin consists our incompatibility with God. We need to exchange our sinful nature with the holiness of God before we can communicate with God. That exchange has been made available for us through Jesus Christ by God the Father.
