That Place *Job 23:8-12

Have you ever felt that you are alone? No one understands what you are going through? If that’s hard, what’s harder is when we pray and nothing “seems” to change. Is God listening? Does God hear? Is God too busy for you? Does God really care? All these answers are yes, yes, yes! God does care. It is hard, but God is not too busy for you. God really does care what happens to you – more than we can ever know or comprehend. God has good reasons for keeping silent. If we hold fast to Him and His promises, we eventually will receive a break through.
8“Look, I go forward, but He is not there,
And backward, but I cannot perceive Him;
9 When He works on the left hand, I cannot behold Him;
When He turns to the right hand, I cannot see Him.
10 But He knows the way that I take;
When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.
11 My foot has held fast to His steps;
I have kept His way and not turned aside.
12 I have not departed from the commandment of His lips;
I have treasured the words of His mouth
More than my necessary food.
Even though God is silent, He is very much aware of what is said, done, and happening in every situation. When God finally does speak – and He will- we will have grown in our relationship with Him; grown in faith, trust, hope, and gain insight and blessings. All we need to do is hang in there. God is faithful to His Word.


The Lord will keep me humble
In Him I won’t crumble
He will catch me when I tumble
And steady me when I stumble
I try not to mumble
And not give way to grumble
Grace is seen when I fumble
He clarifies the jumble
