Ever feel like God is silent?
Jesus said the fateful words on the cross, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?“, a prophetic picture of Jesus’ crucifixion from Psalms 22:1, but the very next verse says this, “My God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer…“
Even the Son of God experienced the Silence of God.
Take heart, then, because ‘we have a High Priest, Jesus Christ, who has been tempted in every way, just as we are and yet did not sin‘ –Hebrews 4:15b.
And, now, because of this and through the Cross, ‘Jesus lives forever and has a permanent priesthood – so He is able to save completely those who come to God through Him, because He always lives to intercede for them’ –Hebrews 7:24-25.
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. –John 16:33
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. –John 3:16
