Silence

September 19, 2007

Have you ever felt that God was silent at the very moment you most needed Him to speak? You wanted Him to speak…You needed Him to speak…but all you heard was silence. You heard Cancer or “I can’t hear the babies heart beat”. You heard, “I can’t take it anymore, I am leaving you.” You cried out…but only silence.

Have you ever felt that God was silent at the very moment you most needed Him to speak?

Job did.

David did.

Israel in Egypt did.

But God is not forever silent…Remember the Resurrection?

God’s silence is not indifference or a lack of compassion, but an eloquent silence. His silence sets the stage for His most eloquent and powerful speaking.

Wait, trust and have faith in the silence…

  2. I remember being in the ER and hearing the words we thing you have: MS before they really found out what I had which was treatable and life saving. But hearing those words come of hopelessness and helpless and having to wait over the weekend beofre I really new what was wrong was really heard and the only thing, I mean the only thing I could do is lean on God. I remembered the Texted you mentioned as well as many others.
