It Takes Time
That's how it is in our relationship with God too. The only way to draw closer to God and improve our relationship with Him is through time. Time spent together, just God and me. It's through time that I learn to discern His voice. With time I understand His deep love for me. It takes time for God to change my heart into something that more closely resembles His.
If I spent one hour learning to play the keyboard and then just stopped, I would never be able to play. I can't just wish for it to happen; I must spend the time to make it happen. So it is with our relationship with God. We must be deliberate in pursuing Him. If you want to know God more, feel Him more, and hear Him more, it takes time.
