A Peaceful Silence…

One of the questions I get asked quite a bit is, “What are you hearing from God lately?” I have to say that as a pastor, this is sometimes an anxiety laden question if I haven’t heard anything for a week or two. I guess what’s been challenging and comforting for me in meditating upon the question and my response is that faith grows in the absence of God’s voice more than in the presence of it. Don’t get me wrong… hearing God’s voice is faith building in it’s own way, but I realize that when I don’t hear anything I’m then at a place where everything that I believe in has to kick in to gear.
So, what am I hearing from God lately? It’s a peaceful silence. It’s a reassuring silence. It’s a season of trust and confidence in what God has ‘already’ done in me…
