    They said to you that "In the last time there will be mockers, walking after their own ungodly lusts." These are they who cause divisions, and are sensual, not having the Spirit. But you, beloved, keep building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in the...

    Is any among you suffering? Let him pray. Is any cheerful? Let him sing praises. Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the assembly, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will heal him who is sick, and the Lord will raise ...

    If I were hungry, I would not tell you, for the world is mine, and all that is in it. Will I eat the meat of bulls, or drink the blood of goats? Offer to God the sacrifice of thanksgiving. Pay your vows to the Most High. Call on me in the day of trouble. I will deliver you, and you will honor me." P...

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 test him, that he might know all that was in his heart. 2 Chronicles 32:30-31 WEB.

    While attending classes at a school, the teacher is right there with you and willing to answer any questions you may have. They spend their time trying to help you understand the subject. But when the test comes later, you are expected to complete it using the knowledge you have been taught. The teacher will no longer answer your questions, and there will be silence in the classroom until the test is over.

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

    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. In the same way, 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 silence. You will have to live what you have learned. Walking with the Lord is more than words. When it happens, don't panic. This is a normal progression, and you are not a unique case. Times like this have a set beginning and an ending. The tests also scale to match your level.

    If you are trying your best but still going through a quiet 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 you have been taught during the previous months leading up to this. They are the key to what you are going through now. The Lord always prepares us first, and we often know more than we think we do. The test will soon be over, and if you have paid attention, you will advance to the next level. If you fail it, you'll be given another chance to retake it later.

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

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (Philippians 4:6-7) ~ 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

In Jesus name I ask,Amen. Our Lord and God has the only master class! Not foolish mankind who sees themselves wise in their own eyes and worldly ways. Thy word is the only truth oh Lord God and man's wisdom is foolishness. Hallelujah and praise to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit!

Thank you so much Pastor Dion Todd for this Word of encouragement.

It was confirmation that the Silence from the Lord was to test me in all that I have read in the Bible and learned from Him if I would apply it or be in fear.

On Monday I heard God saying go and do Prayer walking in the streets of your condominium area there are 6 streets here, and I did it sometimes in my car because was raining sleet, I have been in the gap interceding for this neighborhood.

Since 11 pm Sunday night this area in the suburban of Houston didn't have electricity, neither water due to frozen pipes, Wednesday we power came back for 5 hours and the water pipe was fixed, since yesterday we have power in and out for periods of 5 and 10 hours to be able to accommodate other areas with power too.

Today so far I have power for 14 hours straight since the last night, the temperature is going up its 30 degrees now, I don't have to sleep with 2 sets of pajamas, I can have a hot shower, warm room to sleep and today I was able to have internet... GOD is moving.

I am going out now to do my Prayer walk and then go supermarket to get water that has been sold out because we were advised not to drink public facet water...due to the risk of contamination.

I believe I am passing this test with God's word in my heart and the life skills experience of 10 days without power in NJ during Hurricane Katrina, I recently relocated to TX in September,  I knew that was going to be a new challenge and test from The Lord but I sure was not expecting this.

Al the end I and ...still unemployed since COVID 19, but healthy and blessed, and God takes all the GLORY. God bless you all 

TR.
