    Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonished, and rose up in haste. He spoke and said to his counselors, 'Didn't we cast three men bound into the middle of the fire?' They answered the king, 'True, O king.' He answered, 'Look, I see four men loose, walking in the middle of the fire, and they are unha...

The Silent Time

  • Hezekiah prospered in all his works. However concerning the ambassadors of the princes of Babylon, who sent to him to inquire of the wonder that was done in the land, God left him, to try him, that he might know all that was in his heart. 2 Chronicles 32:30 WEB

    While attending classes at a school, the teacher is right there with you answering any questions that you may have and explaining the subject matter. But when the test comes later, you are expected to complete it using the knowledge that you have been taught. The teacher will no longer answer your questions, and there will be silence in the classroom until the test is complete.

    When it is time to test what you have been learning, you have to be attentive and apply yourself. Are you ready to go to the next chapter, or will you have to re-take the same test for the third time? Passing the tests that come are necessary to advance in your grades.

    I know that God will never leave you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5), but there will be times when He is not speaking. My wife and I are always together, but we are not constantly talking. You can be in His presence, and hear nothing but silence. During Hezekiah's most prosperous time, God left him for a season to test him, that he might know all that was in his heart. (2 Chronicles 32:31).

    At times in your walk with the Lord Jesus, you are going to experience this. You will have to live what you have learned. Walking with the Lord is more than words. When it happens, do not panic. This is a normal progression, and you are not a special case. Times like this have a set beginning, and an ending. The test will also scale to match your level.

    If you are trying your best but still going through a silent time in your life and it seems that God has nothing to say to you, then you are probably going through a test. Hold your head up, think positive, and remember the things that you have been taught during the previous months. They are the key to what you are going through now. The Lord always prepares us, and we often know more than we think we do. Soon the test will be over, and if you have paid attention, you will advance to the next level. If you fail it, you will be given another chance later.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I pray that You bring all the things back to my remembrance that I need to know today. I know that You have already put the things that I need inside of me. Please bring them back to the surface. I need You today, In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (2 Chron 7:14). If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
