He will quiet you with his love. Zephaniah 3:17
Jesus did not answer a word. Matthew 15:23
Have you ever experienced a crushing sorrow, a bitter disappointment, or a heartbreaking blow
from an unexpected place?
It is then that we cry out to hear His voice speak to us.
But sometimes there is only silence, not a word.
His heart must break listening to our cries Often, our impatient hearts cry out because we fail to see
through our tear blinded eyes that it is for our own sakes that He does not answer at all or that he answers
in a way that we think is not best.
The silences of Jesus are as powerful as His words and may be a sign not of His disapproval but of his
approval and His way of providing a deeper blessing for us.
Sometimes His love is silent because His love is beyond the power of words to express it and beyond
Other times it is silent so that we may learn to trust Him. He will "do wonders never before done"
If we will learn the mystery of His silence and praise Him every time for His silence.
