He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;I will be exalted among the nations,I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10
God told Zechariah that because of his disbelief, he was going to be silent until the birth of his son Yochanan; John. The silence was a sign. The prophet Ezekiel was told he would be silent yet he was God’s mouthpiece. It was a prophetic silence and a sign. God was speaking through the silence. Have you sought to hear from God and it seems He’s quiet; not speaking? Realize that He is, because He speaks eloquently in silence. He might be saying, “I’ll take care of it,” or “You already know the answer,” or “Do what I told you to do, what I’ve already revealed to you and I’ll lead you further,” or “I want you to seek Me more; come nearer than you ever have,” or “I want you to persevere,” or “I don’t want you to go by signs.”
The Lord spoke to Israel not just by speaking, but by not speaking, by speaking in the silence of the prophet. The Lord will answer you as well, but sometimes the most powerful thing you can ever hear from God is nothing.
Today’s Mission – If it seems God has been silent, today is the time to trust the Word He has already given you. Rest in His faithfulness.
