Some of the hardest things to handle are the times in our lives when God seems like he is a million miles away and is not answering our prayers. God promised in his word to always be there but sometimes it seems as if he giving us the silent treatment. Job wrote in the Old Testament,
"But if I go to the east, he is not there; if I go to the west, I do not find him. When he is at work in the north, I do not see him; when he turns to the south, I catch no glimpse of him." Job 23:8-9
Maybe you have a situation in your life and you are wondering where God is.
Maybe it’s an illness you deal with and you are wondering if God notices.
Maybe it’s a rebellious child and you’ve asked God to help; but your child continues their bad behavior. Maybe you’ve been abused and the pain is deep and it just won’t go away and you wonder if God even cares. Maybe you have a decision that you need to make but there is no clear picture as to what you should do. And when you ask God he seems silent.
Well throughout this week will be focusing on the discipline of waiting on God and listening for Him even when he appears to be silent.
