“O God of my praise, Do not be silent!” (Psalm 109:1, NASB)

“What do you do when heaven is silent? …

Why is God silent at times? It may be because we aren’t listening or we don’t want to listen … Sin makes us turn a deaf ear to God …

Sometimes God is silent because we aren’t ready for the message. He wants to talk to us about something, but we aren’t ready …

God is sometimes silent because He knows we aren’t willing to obey. He is always ready to show His will, but He shows His will only to those who really want to do it … Obedient people always hear the voice of God.

Finally, sometimes God is silent that He might test us – to teach us the importance of silence, the importance of waiting on Him. Waiting helps remind us of God’s sovereignty.

The silence of God is one of the difficult tests of faith. What should you do when He is silent? Remember His faithfulness and past blessings. Live today on what He has already told you. Trust Him and wait. You will hear the voice of God again.”
