There might be times when God seems silent. When some people pray and nothing happens, they believe that God is not listening. They abandon their prayer and their faith because they believe that it useless to pray to a God who does not answer nor care about their struggles. It is easy to interpret God’s silence and a lack of interest in his creation. Some view prayer and faith as a ‘waste of time’ because God does not answer.
What might seem like God’s silence really isn’t. If you have felt this way, don’t give up on prayer nor on faith. God listens. God has something planned for you. Keep pressing on, even when God seems silent.
Have you prayed to God and nothing seems to happen? Be patient and hold on to faith. Some people might tell you that God does not exist or that praying is a waste of time. This is not true. God does exist. He does care about you, and he will never ignore you.
God answers prayer according to his will and in his own time. He will always do what is best for us. When he is ‘silent’ this a time to draw closer to him and to wait upon him. God will answer our requests and give you what you need at the right time.
Jesus is not silent concerning our needs and struggles. He hears our prayers and acts on our behalf. He speaks words of comfort and strengthens us through the Holy Spirit. You might wonder if God is silent, he is not. He speaks to us through the Son and the Holy Spirit.
May we always be reminded by the Holy Spirit that God isn’t silent. He still speaks to us. He’s telling us to hold on to faith and to press on in hope.
Don’t let doubt, the world, and the devil get you off track in the journey. God in his own way will let you know that he is present. He will not be silent. He’ll be there to guide and to bless you. Keep pressing on in faith. God is never silent.
