Even in His Silence

There are times when God seems not to be there with you, not to help you, not to give you the right words when you think you need them most, not to guard or guide you… and you feel all alone. Scared. Angry. Confused. I, sometimes, feel like God has left me alone to deal with my own situations. But the truth as promised in the Bible is that God will never leave or forsake us. He is always there with us!

When God seems silent, one of the ways to remind oneself that He is always present is to begin to “Count your blessings…name them one by one…,” and you will see that He has always been present. Looking back at the experiences you had with God’s promises helps you to see His immeasurable grace and blessings. You will see God’s abiding presence (Psalm 23). May the Holy Spirit help us to be still even when the great windstorms of life swirls around us and, to see and hear God even when He seems silent. Therefore, as we reflect on God’s promises, let us also look to the future of the glory of the promises that is in Christ Jesus.
