Have You Heard From God Lately?

Have you heard from God lately?

It is always an awesome and exciting time when God speaks to us, but it seems as if it is so much time passes before He speaks again. Sometimes when I have not heard from Him in a while I start to worry, “Did I do something wrong?” “Is God upset with me?” I then have to remind myself that when He is silent it does not mean something is wrong, but that  something is right.

We can know this is true by John 16:13, which says, “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.”

We have this promise that whatever the Spirit hears from the Father He will reveal it to us. If He reveals nothing, then God has not said anything. If God is not saying anything at all, then all is well, and we should continue on with whatever was the last thing He said to do.

Father, thank you for the Holy Spirit in our life and help us to not get anxious when we do not hear from You, knowing all is well or You would have told us so. In the name of Jesus, amen.
