Proverbs of a 38 yr old man
Why is Gods silence strengthening? Why is it deafening me to the cares of this world? Why is it blinding me from the sorrows of this world? His silence is giving me peace. To make peace with what I need to make peace with. Giving me grace over the things I can’t control. Mercy over the things that are dominating me. Yes LORD, your silence is changing me and reforming me. It’s a force against my freewill to confirm to your will if I let it. No better words ring clearer in my heart then, it is well with my soul. No matter what happens Jesus teach me, show me what it means for things to be well with my soul. Give me a submissive spirit so when times of trouble come, yes it will come. I can use your silence as strength for the day. As grace for today. My one request LORD is when in your silence, one of my greatest fears is that I would be overcome by sin. Give me inner peace to fight off sin and death within me. I know when it is all said and done my Redeemer lives. May I be like Steven in my last few moments, full of the Holy Spirit, looking up to heaven and seeing the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. Look,” he said, “I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.” Amazing how those around him covered there ears yelling at him in hatred. God was more louder than ever, if only we would hear him in the silence of prayers. For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him.
