    But you, when you pray, enter into your inner chamber, and having shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. In praying, don't use vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their much speakin...
  • See the birds of the sky, that they don't sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns. Your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren't you of much more value than they?

The Silent Time

  • a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; Eccl. 3:7 ESV 

    When attending 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, you are on your own to complete it. The teacher will no longer answer your questions until the test is over and you will only hear silence.

    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 do you have to re-take this same test? You will have to pass it in order to advance. I know that He 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 silence. 

    At times in your walk with the Lord Jesus, you are going to experience this. Do not panic, this is normal and you are not a special case. If you are going through a silent time in your life and it seems that God has nothing to say, 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 relevant to what you are now going through. Soon the test will be over, and if you have paid attention you will advance to the next level.
