When God is Silent

How do we pray and have faith when we don’t know if God will answer?

It has to start with rooting our faith in the TRUTH OF God’s Character.. We have to develop a right theology of who God is through the Word of God in order to have right thinking about the times when He is silent to us.

We must know and trust the character of God in the silence. Because if we love God for what He gives us (including answers to all our requests and questions) then we will hate God for what He takes away.

How to Build our Faith in the Silence

So how do we trust in His character? How do we come to know it?

- Read the Bible (SPF reading plan)

- make notes of character traits of God and how the play out in life (Creator = pot/clay)

- memorize and teach them

Two Examples

The Canaanite Woman Matthew 15:21-27

Jesus Crucified Matthew 27:45-56, Isaiah 53
