God’s Silence Is Not God’s Rejection

I was browsing through my sisters social media wall when I stumbled on a published note I wrote for her a decade ago. Now I am sharing with you this decade old note. This note might give you a brighter day today. You’ll never know.

In matters of faith, knowing to whom we are praying means we should not give up. We should keep hoping and doing what we must do to the best of our ability, leaving the rest to God. We should have faith that He will respond in His time. God is never early or late, but He is always on time. We can trust that He will be on time for you and me. We should not assume that God’s silence means “no”, but it may mean a test of our faith. It could be a lesson to our neighbour, or protection from an unseen danger, or our desires may not be in harmony with God’s will.

When challenges and troubles come our way, though we may be weeping and praying for God’s intervention, we should remain humble and focused on Jesus. Our humility will be more appealing to our Heavenly Father than our anger and discouragement. No matter how bad a situation may seem, no matter how long God may remain silent, God is always on our side.

“And we know that in all things God works for good to those who love Him.” – Romans 8:28
