00712 - The Silence Of God

When God is silent, it can be one of the most challenging times in our faith journey. We might feel abandoned or confused, wondering why our prayers are unanswered. Yet, God's silence often speaks louder than when He responds. 

Psalm 46:10 (NIV) reminds us, "He says, 'Be still, and know that I am God.'" Sometimes, in silence, God invites us to slow down, reflect, and remember who He is. His silence can teach us patience, deepen our faith, and draw us closer to Him. 

When God seems silent, it's a call to lean into our faith, to trust that He is working behind the scenes. Just because we don't hear Him doesn't mean He isn't there. His silence can remind us that His ways and timing are perfect. Trust in His silence, and you may find He is speaking to your heart in ways words could never adequately convey.


Silence challenges our busyness; perhaps it’s time to listen.


Lord, help me appreciate and learn from when You are silent. Amen.

Action Point

Have you ever sat for an hour in silent prayer - it’s amazing.
