What we think is silence may in fact be our answer.


 

Does God speak to us in the silence of unanswered prayers?

That is the very question Pete Greigg brings up in God On Mute.

One night his wife wakes him up, her leg is numb, her hands begin to curl and her body begins convulsing, after she is rushed to the hospital by Paramedic they realize she has a growth on her brain, which entails three surgeries in one day.

I believe the Lord does speak to us in the silence of unanswered prayers though, because I believe there are always answers.

My former Pastor, Pastor Honey Lou brought up what she believed were the three answers to prayer, yes, no and later. I agree.

In Psalm 35:13 it says:

Yet when they were ill, I put on Sackcloth and humbled myself with fasting. When my prayers returned to me unanswered.

What we think is silence may in fact be our answer.

In the Bible it also says

Be still and know I am God.

We are in a fast past world though, a world in which we want and want it now, and when our prayers are not answered in the time and fashion we think they should be so we get angry at the fact that things are not happening like we think they should happen, forgetting that the Lord knows better than we do.

Sometimes the silence of unanswered prayers, is what we need, it may not be what we want, but it may be what we need.

And the truth is the Lord does not have us suffering in silence, instead he is with us in our pain, if we allow him to be, he will not force himself into our lives, but the fact of the matter is that we should desire him, both in our valleys low and our mountains high.
