When God is Silent

When God is Silent

God is always the same.

Sometimes we don’t feel Him.

Sometimes we don’t believe that He is here.

But He is.

He hasn’t changed.

And He loves us just as much today as He did yesterday.

No matter how much we fail,

No matter how many times we screw up,

He is sovereign and His love for us does not change.

We, however, do change.

We are not consistently in the Word,

We do not bring our concerns to God in prayer,

And then we feel distant.

We feel lost.

We feel hopeless.

We wonder why God is changing, when, in reality, it is us.

But we have the power to change this state.

We can surrender our mind, soul, and strength to Jesus.

We can give Him our time and effort.

We can come to Him in prayer and we can hear from Him through His Word.

We can release our clenched fists and give Him the things that we guard so closely.

Then our relationship can be restored,

After we tear down the walls that we have built up against Him.

Take a deep breath.

And surrender.

God is never silent.

He will never leave us nor forsake us.

We have to choose to surrender to Him.
