8 Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth.

If the Lord’s silence is good for us, then how should we respond when we feel as if there’s a wall blocking our access to Him?

The only way to break through is to keep on praying.

It’s important that we remain on our knees and continue talking to Him.

First, pray to God, requesting that He let you know the reason for His silence.

While Jesus was on the cross, He demonstrated that we can approach the heavenly Father with our questions. (See Mark 15:34.)

Our Lord invites us to talk with Him about anything because He understands us perfectly.

He knows the motivation behind what we’re asking and has an accurate read on where we’re at spiritually.

Second, ask Him to reveal His will for your life and to guide you.

Remember that His timing may not match yours.

Third, trust Him. Be still in the Lord’s presence as He works in your life, and believe that He always sees the way clearly, whether or not you do.

Be aware that God desires for His children to listen—even when we feel as if He’s not talking, even when we feel like giving up.

Finally, open the Bible and start reading.

The Holy Spirit living within you will interpret God’s Word to your heart, and you’ll begin to hear Him speaking to you.

In addition to talking to God, practice being silent in His presence.

When you listen carefully, He will satisfy the deepest longings of your heart with a sense of Himself. Then feelings of anxiety will give way to peace.
