God May Seem Silent, But He Never Really Is
God May Seem Silent, But He Never Really Is…
Have you ever felt that God was not answering your prayers or that He was silent? I have as well. It may even feel like God is punishing you and pushed you away, but that is NEVER true!
The psalmist tells us, “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him” (Psalm 37:7a), because “those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land” (Psalm 37:9b).
We are told to be still, even when He is silent, but that doesn’t mean He’s not working things out. What God often does is work where no human eyes can see, so we must trust Him. It is up to us to “Wait.” It is a promise that, “none who wait for you shall be put to shame…” (Psalm 25:3)
So God says, “Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord” (Psalm 27:14).
When God Is Silent, It Doesn’t Mean He’s Not Working Things Out!
