If God said in Jeremiah 23:29 Does not my word burn like fire?, Says the Lord. "Is it not like a hammer that smashes the rock into pieces?" .....Why is it then that today, we preach and nothing happens, No man is convicted not hearts are repenting and yet we carry on doing the same thing over and over again.
The lack of evidence of the work of God is why we need to cry to God for help. The reality of my need must be expressed to God.
