Whenever there is no response or reply to our request, we often become agitated.
Throughout Job’s experience, God did not give a reply or answer to any questions until the end.
I have observed that God does not respond quickly sometimes when we ask questions.
The reason for this, I have no idea. God is not responsible for us and does not need to account for anything.
For instance, Job asked God, Job 13:23-24 NET 23 How many are my iniquities and sins? Show me my transgression and my sin. 24 Why do you hide your face and regard me as your enemy?
Jesus also asked God questions when He was close to crucifixion: Mat 27:46 NET At about three o’clock Jesus shouted with a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”
I believe God is not deliberately silent and unwilling to answer. He knows the right thing to do all the time. So, He knows the best thing for us.
Sometimes, if God responds, it might end in disaster.
We are hard to convince on any issue. So, staying silent seems to be the best reaction from a loving God.
Next time He is silent, understand He has the best intentions for you.
