Pin It Now!

O God, do not keep silent; be not quiet, O God, be not still. Psalm 83:1

From time to time in our Christian walk we experience a kind of  'silence' from the Lord. We don't immediately realize it and for a day or two we can ignore it and then suddenly we start to panic.

Looking up the Scriptures we can see a few did relate to similar terms.

In today's Scripture Asaph the music director of King David cries out to God: O God, do not keep silent; be not quiet, O God, be not still.

King David on several occasions has shared the same sentiments:

O LORD, you have seen this; be not silent. Do not be far from me, O Lord. Psalm 35:22
O God, whom I praise, do not remain silent Psalm 109:1
O my God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer Psalm 22:2
To you I call, O LORD my Rock; do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you remain silent, I will be like those who have gone down to the pit. Psalm 28:1

If you were to read each of these psalms you will note that this is when the psalmists pour out the contents of their heart about their enemies, what they did to them and how God can punish them etc etc. and almost always they find solace at the end of the psalms just from doing that. It works wonders like a therapy if you will.

We can try it out too - speaking openly with God about the unfairness around us and asking Him to work wonders on our behalf. He does listen and lessens our burden in no time.

Happy November all!
