As I was driving Littlest to school this morning, I was amazed at the effort it took to navigate the few blocks in the dense fog. After only a moment behind the wheel the application hit me like a ton of bricks.
I’m in a spiritual fog.
God is working behind the scenes in so many aspects of my life right now that it would be easy to think He was actually absent. But, I know this is not true.
I’m midway through our bible study of Esther where God’s invisible providence is paramount. I love Charles Swindoll’s commentary on God’s silence in the Book of Esther.
God’s presence is not as intriguing as His absence.
His voice is not as eloquent as His silence.
That’s exactly where I am.
Waiting in God’s silence.
I’m waiting on exciting pieces of God’s giant puzzle to fit together in my life. Pieces like the development of this blog, my role in our bible study, and the prospect of a new ministry. I know I’m on the right path. He’s led me here, but it’s foggy right now. And God’s silence seems deafening.
So I wait. Knowing I worship a sovereign God who, alone, is in control. And in His perfect timing, the fog will be lifted and the light will shine clearly and perfectly on the path He has chosen for me.
In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait in expectation.
What about you? Have you ever been in a spiritual fog?
