You once said, "I joined forces with my chosen leader, I pledged my word to my servant, David, saying, 'Everyone descending from you is guaranteed life; I'll make your rule as solid and lasting as rock.'" Psalm 89:3-4 (TM)
Communication is a complicated process. I've learned through time that many, if not most, interpersonal conflicts are rooted in some form of miscommunication. "That's what you said," I'll say I'll say to my wife. "That's not what I meant," I'll hear in response. "I told you exactly what I expected," I'll say to my children. "That's not what I heard," I'll hear in response. The sender, the receiver, the text, the subtext, the context, and the intention are all woven into a complex web of communication. No wonder it gets so muddled.
Communication with God becomes even more dimensional and interesting. In communicating with God we are communicating with the all knowing and eternal. When God told David that he would establish his throne forever, David and his followers saw generations of flesh-and-blood kings sitting on earthly thrones. God looked ahead in David's family tree and saw His Son, born in the City of David, who would sit on an eternal throne over a Kingdom that is not of this world. God said one thing, the psalmist heard another.
Effective communication is rooted in being a good hearer and interpreter, not just being a good talker.
