WHEN GOD SEEMS SILENT
Have you ever prayed and sought God with all your heart, and felt as if He did not answer?
Have you ever gone through a trial or a difficulty and seemingly did not experience the comfort of God?
Though you know God loves you, it may seem as if God is silent
I believe all of us who name the name of Christ have gone through these seasons.
However, the great news is, “Seasons Change”
Hallelujah and YES, the darkest hour is just before the break of day.
I recall our Lord and Savior being on the cross alone, in agony, and darkness covered the land.
It was a “Dark Season” (Matthew 27:45-46)
God was silent – Even our Lord asked, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken Me?”
However, though it seemed as if God was silent, God was about to do the greatest work He has ever done for mankind.
He was going to raise His Son from the grave with all power in his hand.
God was going to get the glory.
I want to encourage you that if you are going through a dark season, a painful season, a trying season, and it seems God is silent, God has not forsaken you (Hebrews 13:5)
He could be setting you up for the greatest blessing you have ever seen, and there will be Glory after this.
When God is silent, He hasn’t forsaken us, He is only working to bring a greater glory in our lives.
When God is silent, there will be Glory after this.
Be encouraged… God is working, and your season will change.
