Why Do You Hide Your Face?

A Meditation on God's silence

Does it seem like God is ignoring you?  Do you cry out to Him or seek His direction and yet it seems He is not answering?  You are not the first to feel this way.  Abraham, Joseph, Job, David and many others in the Bible experience agonizing periods of silence from God.  The disciples must have experienced this during the long hours between the cross and the empty tomb when God lay dead in a  tomb.

In this meditation we will contemplate how the disciples felt during the time after Jesus' death, when God seemed to have abandoned them.  We will explore truth that may help us through times in our life when God is silent and we feel alone.


Steve's Commentary:

As with most of the meditations we write, this one came out of my own times of meditation on scripture and my personal struggle.  My wife and I have been seeking God's direction and provision in a particular area for quite some time.  And we have experienced a long, frustrating silence.  There have been times we have felt like screaming (to quote David), "Why do You hide your face?"  Praise God, what I know is more powerful than what I feel!

Scriptures: John 19:41-42, Psalm 44:23-26, Deuteronomy 31:6

    This meditation really helped me get through the day, and to gain some perspective over my challenges. Everyone feeling ignored by God should hear this message. Love Rev.Bola
