You pray, but God doesn’t seem to be listening. You trust Him, but it appears He’s letting you down. You believe His Word, but His promises are coming up seemingly empty in your life. You seek, but do not find…you knock, but no one answers. If God is doing anything at all in your life…you can’t see it. The fight of faith intensifies, as it appears that not only is God running late…He may not even show up at all. By the looks of things, God’s either too busy in the lives of others or He just simply doesn’t care.
All of our Christian life, we’re prepared to hear God speak to us, but nothing prepares us for His silence. It’s in these times of desperation, when we’re filled with doubt in the midst of our faith, when waiting on God appears to be in vain, that our faith is tested, grown, and strengthened, as we learn to trust in Him even when there appears to be now reason that we should.
While we wait on God, it’s His Promises that we’ll cling to, and ultimately put our faith in, when our lives are hanging by a thread. We’ll find that God knows what He’s doing. He’s in control…even when life isn’t. You’ll find that even when your world seems to be falling apart…it’s really just falling into place in the hands of your Almighty loving God.
