“…Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, LORD; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place. And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth...” – 1 Sam 3:9-10 KJV [italics & emphasis mine]
We tend to get intimidated if not irritated when someone says ''the Lord told me…'', we don’t like the idea that God spoke to him/her. It gets on our nerves when someone ‘claims’ to have heard from the Lord…who does she/he think she/he is? We think that one has to be ‘special’, ‘holy than thou’ or ‘tight-close to God’ for God to speak to him/her. Yet the bible records many instance of God speaking to sinners and saints as well, yes God speaks to Lucifer, the devil.
Perhaps the reason you don’t hear God’s voice is because your mind is filled with ‘worries of this life’ so much so that when He speaks, you don’t realize it. Or May be you don’t hear God’s voice simply because you don’t know His voice? John 10 Jesus said my sheep ‘’know’’ my voice; in Mark 21 Jesus warns us against worries of this life_lest they keep us from our waiting on Him. When was the last time you ‘heard’ from God? Would you recognize His ‘voice’ when God speaks to you?
