Silent

When God is silent, He hasn’t deserted you.

When God is silent, He isn’t ignoring you.

When God is silent, it doesn’t mean He’s got no answer for you.

When God is silent, He doesn’t want you to move on your own.

When God is silent, He doesn’t want you to lose hope.

When God is silent, He doesn’t want you to lose your faith.

When God is silent, it doesn’t mean He loves you no more.

When God is silent, He wants you to seek Him more and more.

When God is silent, He wants you to keep trusting Him.

When God is silent, He wants you to wait for His voice.

When God is silent, He wants you to believe in Him.

When God is silent, He wants you to hold on to your faith.

When God is silent, He wants you to remember the times He came through unexpectedly.

When God is silent, He wants you to hold on to His word.

When God is silent, He wants you to worship and praise.


 I have come to realize that God’s silence isn’t denial. Neither does it imply He has no answer for you. Most often, He just wants you to build more trust in Him. He wants you to keep having faith that He will come through.

It doesn’t make sense to worship and praise when everything seems to be going off track and the only person with the answers decides to be quiet. But don’t forget, God inhabits the praises of His children (Psalm 22:3), meaning, when you worship and praise, you will draw Him closer and closer to you.

It is also not easy to be still and wait for God to say something when you need an answer immediately, but trust me, it is worth it. Think about it, which victory ever came easy? Who won a battle but didn’t struggle? Your setbacks give you an idea of the magnitude of your comeback – they are directly proportional.

When God goes silent on you, keep holding on to Him, trust Him even more and don’t stop calling Him, bug Him. He will speak eventually, at the right time. (See Job)

Apparently, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder”. Could God’s silence be a way of creating a deeper hunger, thirst and desire for Him in His children? *wink

 Scriptural references: Job 30:20 – 31, Psalm 22; Hebrews 13:5,-6 Luke 11:9, Psalm 23:4

  1. This piece hae really spoken to me a whole lot. Now I know God’s silence isn’t because He’s no more interested in me but a way for me to seek Him more and trust Him. Thanks for the insight. God bless and keep the fire burning.
