When God Seems Silent

I was thinking this morning about blogging. I didn't know what to say. This got me thinking about why I haven't had much to say lately and it really all just boiled down to one thing. "God sure seems to have been very quiet lately." 

In the instant I thought that I could picture God sitting on his thrown next to his son with a bummed out look on his face saying, "Sarah sure has been very quiet lately." 

Next time you feel like God has been quiet in your life, has not been speaking to you, loving you, even correcting you ask yourself, could He have the same legitimate complaint about me?

Thankfully we serve a God who is a pursuer 

“Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends." Revelation 3:20

But in the same way He wants to hear from us to. He can rescue, tend to, mend, and comfort but He wants us to make a move to show we want it. 

O people of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. How gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer you. Isaiah 30:19 

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13 

For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Matthew 7:8
When He seems silent He may just be waiting on you. His love for us is unconditional, No Matter What! A relationship is an all together different thing... it takes TWO!  

P.S. I LOVE comments! Please don't be shy!

  1. "He wants us to make a move to show we want it." How true. We have to pursue him too, but we also have to be prepared to sit and listen to what he has to say. I know sometimes I think God isn't answering when really, I'm just not listening.

  2. That is so very true Deanna, I know I am often times guilty of that. In fact the verse I have on my white board right now that I am presently meditating on is:
    Lamentations 3:26 It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. I don't do quiet very well. ;)


Thanks for letting me here from you!
