When God Seems Silent

Habakkuk 1:1-4

Job 30:20, “I cry to you for help and you do not answer me; I stand, and you only look at me.”

Ps 22:1-2, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, from the words of my groaning? O my God, I cry by day, but you do not answer, and by night, but I find no rest.”

3 honest questions we ask when God seems silent…

1. How long will my prayer go unanswered?

God responds to our prayers in one of 4 ways:
1. Heart check-
2. No-
3. Yes-
4. Wait-

2. Why?

3 promises when God is silent.
1. Our bad things will turn out for good- Rom 8:28
2. Our good things can never be taken away from us- Ps. 4:6-7
3. The best things are yet to come- 1 Cor 2:9

3. Are you ok with this?
