When God Doesn’t Answer
There are few things more frustrating that trying to understand God’s plan. This harsh reality is particularly true when you are faced with a situation that requires an answer. And, at times during this journey, God requires us to wait for his answer.
During these times, it seems like God has forgotten about us altogether. No matter how much we beg and plead, the answers we are seeking to find seem nonexistent. Loneliness seems to be all we have and fear plagues our hearts. It seems as if our life will end without the answer to our question. Worse, it seems that no one cares.
In reality, there are only three answers to a question we have for God: yes, no, or not yet. Waiting to figure out which of these answers is the appropriate one can kill a person. Hours become days, and days become weeks. Our prayers continue to
But, no matter the time it takes, God’s answer will come.
God has not forgotten you or your struggles. He simply knows you are not prepared to receive the answer in this particular moment. When the time is ready, He will provide you with the information you are looking for. And, He will provide you with the skills to overcome any additional obstacles that come with this answer.
Though you feel lonely, you are never alone. God loves you more than you could ever imagine. He understands that the world needs your existence, and has created you with the same urgency as every other part of this world. Though times are tough right now, you will preserve. Your questions will be answered, and you will find the peace that your heart is searching for.
Though many times, we fail the Lord with our inability to trust him with our whole hearts, overcoming this fear is the key to success. Tell the Lord about your hopes and fears. Ask Him to bring peace to your heart until he can provide you with the answer.
Trust Him, my friend. He has your best interest in mind.
