All over the world, Christians go to church on Sunday to listen to their pastor preach for an hour. For many that is how they hear God speaking, but it is a poor substitute for “God filling us with knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding” (Col 1:9).

God want his people to learn to hear him speak directly by the Holy Spirit, and we need to hear him to be able to obey him.

But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him (1 John 2:27).
However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak (John 16:13).
The problem with the Sunday preaching model is that the pastor works hard to learn how to hear God speak, because he needs to. Most people do not need to, so most do not know how to hear God speak. So his will is not done.
