What Do You Do When You Can't Hear God?

Since my husband lost his job at the end of July, we've been pressing in and asking God to show us the way forward.

We've been happily waiting and trusting that God will provide all we need, and my husband has enjoyed the opportunity to spend more time with God and catch up on much needed sorting and decorating. We sensed that was how God wanted Tim to spend his time and both of us felt that he would be working again by the end of Ocober.

We are now half way through October, the finances are beginning to run dry and neither of us is any nearer knowing what God is doing or where the finances will come from. There is no sign of work for Tim.

Most of the time I am fine with that and quietly trust that God who knows all things will open doors. Yesterday, for the first time, I began to wonder how we were going to manage. God doesn't seem to be saying anything new and I don't know what we are supposed to do.

I gave you a little peak into life at the Lee household, so that you could see that I do know what it's like to be in a difficult place and have nowhere to turn other than God who seems silent. I know that life can be hard when you can't hear what God is saying and can't see a way out.

What do you do when you can't hear God and He seems far away?

I've experienced days, weeks, and even months when I didn't know what God was saying. Yet although God seemed silent, He was active in my life. God is always at work, it's simply that He doesn't always tell us what He's doing.

When God seems silent, remember that He is faithful, and trust that you will hear Him when the time is right.

How Do You Respond When God Seems Silent?

It's easier to navigate through things when you know why or can see where the road is leading. But God doesn't always let us in on the why or show us how and where.

What do you do when the enemy tries to tell you lies?...

  • What makes you think that you can hear God?
  • God isn't going to speak to you, you don't deserve it
  • You don't really know God at all
  • God doesn't care about you
  • He's given up on you
  • God isn't real. You've just been making it up

Do you rely on your feelings, or do you trust God's promises?

When God seems silent

  • Hold on to what you already know - what's the last thing God said?
  • God could be testing you - what do you really believe?
  • Don't start to doubt what you know
  • Don't compare yourself to other people
  • Beware of making things overcomplicated - faith is childlike
  • Walk by faith, not by sight

God promised that He would never leave you or forsake you. God is always with you. When God seems silent, let Him guide you even in the apparent silence. Remember, and continue to believe that

  • God is guiding you now
  • He's guided you in the past
  • He will guide you in the future

God's silence is an invitation to take your eyes off the circumstance and to look to Jesus who is the author and finisher of your faith. Dare to trust God and draw even closer. That's what I'm dong.
