Have you ever wondered….
God where are you?
God why aren’t you answering?
Do you know?
Do you care?
I’m learning that God’ silence is not his absence.
All of our Christian life we’re prepared to hear God speak to us, but nothin
g prepares us for His silence. When our emotions are flooding our soul and we “feel” the absence of His presence, we can convince our frightened hearts with the truth that God is most powerfully present even when it seems like He’s most apparently absent.
Psalm 139: 7,9-12
7 I can never escape from your Spirit!
I can never get away from your presence!
9 If I ride the wings of the morning,
if I dwell by the farthest oceans,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
and your strength will support me.
11 I could ask the darkness to hide me
and the light around me to become night—
12 but even in darkness I cannot hide from you.
To you the night shines as bright as day.
Darkness and light are the same to you.
