A former US. President, who himself often had to endure long receiving lines at the White House complained that no one really paid any attention to what was said. One day, during a reception, he decided to try an experiment.
To each person who came down the line and shook his hand, he murmured, “I murdered my grandmother this morning.”
The guests responded with phrases like, “Marvelous! Keep up the good work. We are proud of you. God bless you, sir.”
It was not till the end of the line, while greeting the ambassador from Bolivia, that his words were actually heard.
Un-phased, the ambassador leaned over and whispered, “I’m sure she had it coming, sir.”
Have you ever wondered if GOD IS LISTENING?
You have found yourself in a difficult financial situation, or maybe your marriage is breaking up. You have a physical condition that you have yet to receive the healing you have been believing God for. Do you feel hopeless, maybe grief over the loss of a loved one – not understanding why. Add to that unattained goals, emotional upheaval and a personal loss … and a follower of Christ might just conclude ‘God isn’t listening to me’ or ‘God doesn’t Care’, and settle for resignation.
You’re believing a lie.
God does hear, He does care, and He actually IS INVOLVED.
Maybe you just need to look at your circumstances in a different light.
For the next couple weeks friends, would you join me in my Sunday messages (available on the website for download) so that you might get a RIGHT PERSPECTIVE of why it appears GOD IS SILENT?
