Is God Silent?

There are times in our lives when we believe God is silent, that He is not present in our immediate situation. That our prayers have fallen on deaf ears.

But is God ever really silent?

No earnest and believing prayer to God  ever falls on deaf ears. To the contrary, our omnipotent Father knows your prayer before the first utterance of a syllable parts your lips.

Mother Teresa has said, “the language of God is silence and that if our heart is filled with other things, we can’t hear His voice”. Her words follow that of John of the Cross, a Catholic saint of the contemplative who wrote that: “Silence is God’s first language.”

God is never silent!!!

He is speaking to us all the time, we are just to filled with worldly distractions to ‘hear.’ God’s language is silence, not on His part, but on our part!!!

To ‘hear’ God speak, WE must be silent! We must be in our quiet place or space, in a peaceful, mind-emptied, contemplative  state in order to communicate with God and to hear from Him.

That time is known as Prayer. That place, our prayer closet.

We cannot be surrounded by noise, or be noisemakers and expect to hear His voice, when our hearts and minds are not free of earthly encumbrances. No, God is not silent, we are just noisy and in the midst of it can’t hear Him speaking.

God communicates in many ways. In a tiny voice that speaks to our hearts or brains. A whisper in our ears. An affirmation from a stranger (an angel in disguise) or a Christian friend. A vision, a dream, a premonition. An encounter and in so many other ways. But we must be still, silent and an open, receptive vessel to hear.

Father God, peace be still. Help me to hear you in silence!!! Calm my soul. Still my thoughts. Quiet my tongue so that I may be immersed totally in you through your spirit that lives in me. Amen 🙏🏽
