God's Silence

Do you not know?  Have you not heard?  The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.  He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.  Isaiah 40:28

Have you ever experienced the silence of God?  We all at one time or
another have experienced the silence of our LORD.  What are we to do?  Hang on to the promises of Almighty God, even when He is silent. 

When we read Psalm 22, it is evident that David experienced the silence of God but he chose to exercise his faith.  You and I must do the same.  When God is silent, choose to hang on to how faithful God has been to you in the past.  He will again prove faithful to you in the present and the future. 

During the times when God is silent, remember that He is Holy.  Yet you (Almighty God) are enthroned as the Holy One; you are the one Israel praises - Psalm 22:3.  Knowing God is the creator of all and He provides us with the very air we breathe should give us comfort when God is silent.  God created the universe by speaking it into existence.  By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible - Hebrews 11:3.  Even when God is silent, He is still in complete control.  We can trust in our creator. 

Throughout Scripture we read of God's faithfulness.  Because of the faithfulness of Almighty God, we can stand firm when He is silent.  Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments - Deuteronomy 7:9.  We can reflect on how faithful God has been to us in the past and place our hope in Him knowing that He will continue to be faithful even when He is silent. 

Scripture reveals to us that our LORD is compassionate and gracious to His children.  He loves us more than we can comprehend.  When God is silent, know that He never stops loving His children.  But you LORD, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness - Psalm 87:15. 

Even when God is silent, we can know that God is with us and will never forsake us.  God will provide us with strength and courage and will uphold us with His righteous hand.  Trust in Him.  So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous hand - Isaiah 41:10. 

Dear Heavenly Father, during times of silence I prayer that we will continue to seek You through Your Holy Word.  Thank You LORD for Your faithfulness,Your love, and Your grace.  In Jesus Name I Pray.....Amen.
