Sounds of silence

By Samuel The Worshiper with a Word



The sounds of silence can be very isolating for a saint.  The saint begins to examine their hearts to see if they are right with God.  This could be one of the reasons that God is silent…to allow us to examine ourselves.


In the night time it gets super quiet.  Noises you normally do not hear are now heard.  Such as a dripping faucet, creaking in the house from the shifting of the building or the settling of the house, trains off in a distance, the sound of crickets, and so many other sounds.  That is how it is when God works too, we hear everything and everyone but God.  God is silent when He works, He doesn’t want to make a noise and distract us.  Because He wants us to get all of what He has for us. If we heard Him and saw where He was working in our life we would end up there before He was finished working it out for us and most likely mess it up. 


So God is silent until everything has been prepared for us.  But at that moment when God speaks and says ok do this, pray for this, go see, go do and so on and so forth, we get to see the thing God has worked out for us begin to come to pass.  God brings the morning when it is time, no sooner no later, right on time. 


We cannot change when the sun comes up or when it goes down, so why worry about it?  We know that at some point in time, when the timing is just right the sun will peak out across the earth and the morning will have come.  I should point out that the time each morning that the sun rises is never the same day after day after day.  Some days its up earlier 6:15 AM and other days it is up later 6:25AM, but it still comes sometime in the morning. 


So it is also with our deliverances and blessings, they will come at the precise time God has planned for it to take place.  The only way man can control the time of the morning is by changing the time to fit his own schedule and yet it still does not change the fact that morning came as it always has and the sun went down as it always has. 


The morning and night are the same to God and it is as a ball, the ball on one side has a black side the other has a blue side, just because I see the black does not mean I have a black ball, it is still black and blue.  The ball is the same, but my outlook is altered.  If I turn it a little I may still see black, a little more still black and right at the exact moment the blue begins to appear I am able to see what I really have, a black and blue ball


You have some balls with four, five and six different colors on each little part of the ball, for me to see them all I have to let the ball turn 365` to know what all is on my ball or in my ball.  It is the same with what God does or gives us in our life, to see it all we must go through the day and the night, the good times and the evil and then only will we really see what is going on in our life.  Even then we don’t know everything that God is planning on doing next. 


In the night seasons of your life you will be able to see God and hear God better than any other time because you have put on hold those every day things you usually do and have sat still with the intent to hear a word from Jesus.  That is why it is so important to separate yourself from people, places and things for a time; and seek God!  You may discover that there are some things you are holding on to that is keeping you from seeing the whole picture. 


It is time for you to pick up your ball and begin to rotate it.  Examine it closely, see what you really have and discover what God has really designed for you!  Because during these sounds of silence, is when you truly discover who you are and what God has for you.  Silence lets you hear the things you don’t hear with the noise of life! 


Ssssshhhhhhhh……… you hear that???


Listen again!!!!  God is speaking to you right now!  Take this time to separate yourself from everything else just for a few moments and listen.  Lift your hands and tell the Lord, Speak Lord for I am listening!!!

1 Samuel 3:1 through 1 Samuel 3:10 (NLT) 1Meanwhile, the boy Samuel was serving the LORD by assisting Eli. Now in those days messages from the LORD were very rare, and visions were quite uncommon.  2One night Eli, who was almost blind by now, had just gone to bed. 3The lamp of God had not yet gone out, and Samuel was sleeping in the Tabernacle£ near the Ark of God. 4Suddenly, the LORD called out, “Samuel! Samuel!” “Yes?” Samuel replied. “What is it?” 5He jumped up and ran to Eli. “Here I am. What do you need?” “I didn’t call you,” Eli replied. “Go on back to bed.” So he did. 6Then the LORD called out again, “Samuel!”  Again Samuel jumped up and ran to Eli. “Here I am,” he said. “What do you need?”  “I didn’t call you, my son,” Eli said. “Go on back to bed.”  7Samuel did not yet know the LORD because he had never had a message from the LORD before. 8So now the LORD called a third time, and once more Samuel jumped up and ran to Eli. “Here I am,” he said. “What do you need?”  Then Eli realized it was the LORD who was calling the boy. 9So he said to Samuel, “Go and lie down again, and if someone calls again, say, ‘Yes, LORD, your servant is listening.’” So Samuel went back to bed.  10And the LORD came and called as before, “Samuel! Samuel!”  And Samuel replied, “Yes, your servant is listening.”
