What Is God Trying To Teach Us In His Silence? (Salt & Light #19)

God, Are You Listening?

There have been many times when I felt as if my prayers were answered with silence.  My heart has cried and I have pleaded a case only to feel as if I had no response.  Whether it be in times of illness, during times of stress or oppression, or even times of death.

But what does God’s word say about the prayers we speak?  Do they ever fall on deaf ears?

 

It is true that there is power in prayer but what happens when you feel like your prayers have gone unheard and God is being silent? Is He trying to teach us something? Check out this featured post at Salt and Light Linkup to learn the valuable truth about God's silence. #saltandlightlinkup #prayers #christianblogger

 

In Job there is a passage spoken by Elihu, a bystander listening to Job and his three friends who decides to offer some Godly wisdom.  His words nearly jumped off the page at me.

 

“And when they cry out, God does not answer because of their pride.  But it is wrong to say God doesn’t listen, to say the Almighty isn’t concerned.  You say you can’t see him, but he will bring justice if you will only wait”
Job 35: 12-14  NLT

Could it be that the silence is meant to teach us something?  Are we listening closely enough during the quiet times?
