1/ Sometimes Sometimes it’s in the silence of God that we can hear God most clearly.
2/ When we or the Bible speak of the silence of God, we mean God feels far away, he fails to give guidance, he refuses to intervene.
3/ Sometimes a "no" answer can feel like no answer.
4/ We learn from Jesus and the Psalms that it's okay to complain to God.
5/ It's okay to keep asking. Jesus asked three times.
6/ It's okay to stop asking. Jesus stopped after three.
7/ Listen in the silence. "The quieter the room, the more you will hear."
8/ Trust God in the silence. It’s in the deepest silence of all that we hear God’s most intimate words of love.
9/ The deepest silence is what Jesus experienced for us on the cross. He absorbed the wrath of God for our sins.
