I have read several responses to another post about how God speaks to you.. some of you said you never heard or felt His presence... My question to you is this... What exactly were you expecting to hear and feel.. how do you know that you didnt feel him or hear him if you dont know what it was supposed to feel and sound like? Reason I am asking this is.. many of us have a certain expectation of what His voice sounds like and His presence feels like but more often than not its not what we expected but that instead of that still small voice He came through the words in the bible or through words from others or if you expected a loud voice but He came and whispered to your heart how much He loves you or through a dream or a vision or His precense truly was different than you thought that He did come and wrap His arms around you but you expect something else and missed it entirely..... I get the sense thats what happened..

I was told it will never be a audible voice for that will be the devil & if you hear a voice out loud it is evil. I was listening for the voice in my head that your know isn't yourself, looking for symbolism anywhere that shows he is listening, I expected to feel love or truth in the bible, I expected to feel something. I all my years as a Christan I never once felt gods presence. and I tried to be a very good one, I prayed, I listened, I tried to do it right for years. I never felt it, never. And once I let it go, a decision that i didn't come to lightly, I felt all the guilt of not being "worthy" of hearing him was away. It was awesome not the feel the guilt any more. it was awesome to not feel abandoned anymore. I will never forget that moment that I let go - it was almost euphoric!!
