Harold B. Lee once said
... “you and I have within our souls something like what might be said to be a counterpart of those radio tubes. We might have what we call a ‘go-to-sacrament-meeting’ tube, a ‘keep-the-Word-of-Wisdom’ tube, a ‘pay-your-tithing’ tube, a ‘have-your-family-prayers’ tube, a ‘read-the-scriptures’ tube, and, as one of the most important—one that might be said to be the master tube of our whole soul—we have what we might call the ‘keep-yourselves-morally-clean’ tube. If one of these becomes worn out by disuse or inactivity—if we fail to keep the commandments of God—it has the same effect upon our spiritual selves that a worn-out tube has in a radio.
But if you've asked God questions, and He doesn't seem to be answering them right now, does it always mean that you've sinned in some way?
If you can't hear His voice at the moment, is it always your fault?
Why did the Psalmist say "O Lord God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before thee...Lord, why castest thou off my soul? why hidest thou thy face from me?" (Psalm 88:1, 14)?
Are there times when He chooses to be silent?
