When God’s Silence is Confusing – A Follow p Devotion from The Journey Class

When you face confusing circumstances, don’t blame God. Don’t give up following Him. Go to God. Ask Him to show you His perspective. Then wait on the Lord. You cannot know the truth of your circumstance until you have heard from God.

Even as you wait for God to speak or act, you can focus your heart and mind in these ways to hear from Him.

  1. Settle in your mind that God has forever demonstrated His unfailing love for you on the cross. That love will never change.
  2. Do not try to understand what God is like from the middle of your circumstances.
  3. Go to God and ask Him to help you see His perspective on your situation.
  4. Wait on the Holy Spirit. He may take God’s Word and help you understand your circumstances.
  5. Adjust your life to God and to what you see Him doing in your circumstances.
  6. Do all He tells your to do.
  7. Experience God working in and through you to accomplish His purpose.
